Fabric Strips

We have been busy stripping fabric. The girls love to help with this project. We off many colors and lengths and love to combine shipping. Blue, green, burgundy gingham homespun are so pretty tied around candles, on sign hangers, pegs, door knobs, around gifts and on hang tags... They are an inexpensive way to dress up an item or package. Some artists use the fabric to make coasters, placemats and rugs.

She's Finished~~

I can't believe after weeks of working on her, she is finished. She is a beautiful handmade doll by me and one I won't mind keeping if she doesn't sell. Much time and love went into her. She is a "round head" and her face is handpainted on. Her hands are sculpted and painted, lightly sanded polish to look old... Her shoes are painted on and accented with rusty bells. I made her from a pattern by Prim and Proper Folks. I just listed her on eBay, so keeping my fingers and toes crossed others love her as much as I do...

Where is the SUMMER going?

Oh my time has flown by since I last popped on! We have taken another trip since our Pittsburgh trip. We went to Hershey for 4 days. Hershey KOA is our favorite campsite to go to thus far. We went to Hershey Park for a day, which we absolutely LOVE and enjoy... We rode over to Lancaster and Intercourse and took a ride in an Amish buggy. That was really fun and very enjoyable. Our driver, John, was very happy to answer questions. I sat behind him and the poor guy had to hear me rattle off a bazillion questions the whole trip. I learned about Shoofly Pie and saw their beautiful farms. We were driven through an active dairy farm. Many of the farmers in that area sell their milk to Land O Lakes. We spent the last day at camp at the pool much of the day. It was a very hot day and we got a thunderstorm that evening. We quickly put our camping items away and rolled the awning in. We watched PS I Love You and National Treasures. We are Netflix fans and took a couple of movies with us for evening enjoyment. We LOVED National Treasures and gave it 4 stars, however, PS I Love You was awful. We gave it a 1 and that's only because we couldn't give it a zero ROFL!!!! What's everyone else up to? Any vacations planned or taken?

My Doll's Progress - Melody

Well, she's almost finished and now with vacation upon me, I will have to try to finish her as soon as we get home... She is made from a pattern by Prim and Proper. I have to put her hair on of course, and finish dressing her. She also comes with a prim heart to hold. I am slower than molasses making dolls, but I really enjoy making them and seeing the progression of change... Her face is painted and penciled. Wish me luck on the money!! xox
