Bright and Beautiful Baby

Often, when I am starting a new group of dolls, I go back to designs I have done previously to get inspired. I used this beautiful lady as an inspiration for this baby. I love how these colors work together.

The applique pieces (flowers and leaves) are all cashmere. So soft!

And here are 2 outside photos- doesn’t this baby look glorious next to the coleus!

Back to work with some swaddled babies

Hi again! I’m back to work on dolls after taking time off to do other life projects. I did a lot of boring stuff but also worked on a quilt top.The top is mostly finished and I plan to do the quilting part after I finish my fall shows (October and November) or maybe after Christmas. Anyway, finally something finished to show you!

Night Bird Baby

A sleeping baby is a beautiful sight.

The lowest bird is made of an angora blend so is fuzzy and soft. The other 3 birds, and the hat, are all cashmere; also soft :-)

This morning I finished and delivered my 100th scrub cap- I’ll have to make a lot more to put a dent in my fabric stash! Going forward, I will be spending more time on my own artwork but will also continue to make the caps as they are needed.

Blue Flower Baby

Spring Baby in the midst of a pandemic. I will just keep on working because what else can I do? We are well into Spring here in Boston- daffodils and trees beginning to leaf out. Lots of the green shoots in the garden are cropped at about 4″ high by voracious rabbits. Other plants are not touched. It is good to see the garden come to life as everything else in the world feels like it has stopped.
