No new dolly's but my Jennifer Belle pattern doll will be coming up on CDA as a class. (see link on right). Also, my Little Darling's class. You can check out Dolly on the right, she is part of that class and her head is used to make a rattle or ornament as well. Her pattern prints right onto your fabric. Easy and fun. She is meant to look like the old vintage dolls. This pic shows her as printed but she can be darkened to look newer too like the pic with Jasmin.
Little Grace is my painting tutorial:
She is the model for the class, using her face. Her pattern to make a full doll is the Jennifer Belle pattern and this includes instructions for Jennifer's face as well. Jasmin was also made from this pattern (Jasmin Belle).
I am still hoping to make a new doll pattern soon. Really am dreaming of a soft sculpt baby. I have decided that despite the health challenges lately, it really must be the time of year. So much going on and the weather is so gorgeous, I just am soooo distracted!
Plus, dolly room is not finished. It is primed and waiting for paint though. I wish I could paint it but I can't lift my arms over my head easily for any length of time. Hubby is soooo busy and tends to want the walls perfect so he has touched up and touched up. I told him he doesn't need to be so picky but he cann't help it. The walls were in rough shape from being a play-room when the kids were little and then Sarah's room for several years.
I'll be sharing my room with Tim now that he is in business for himself. Lucky he doesn't mind all my dolls about : ) Half of them and my supplies remain packed up though, driving me crazy! However, I am so busy with my new granddaughter coming in September it definetely keeps me preoccupied.
I had so much fun shopping just a bit for Tia's upcoming baby shower end of July. Found some really fun game ideas on etsy and ebay. Got supplies to start making fun interactive table decorations. It is going to be great. Finally finished gathering all the adresses for the baby shower. Jeff's mom made the arrangements to book a hall so it feels good to be moving forward with concrete plans.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Blessings to all of our soldiers and families.
