And now it’s March

It is March and I am surrounded by piles. Piles and piles of materials and dolls in progress. I have been benefiting from everyone doing their New Years clear out. I found tons of goodies at the thrift store and several friends have donated beautiful fabrics to my supply pile. Here are the thrift store goodies, deconstructed and washed, waiting to get put away.

I now have a whole pack of dogs waiting to get dressed. Here they are, stuffed and their noses and arms sewed on.

And finally some are getting dressed. I am having to make all new patterns for their clothing which ends up being time consuming.

I’m back from Providence where I had a terrific weekend. (If I have time, I will do a separate post about it.) I tried to do a blog post from there but wasn’t able to and too distracted to try too hard. So here are a few more pieces that got finished before the show. Two boy dogs-

The dolls are back in the etsy shop, and I am adding the ones that I hadn’t listed yet. It might take a while!
