Today was a doll-making-listing-on-eBay
marathon kind of day!
Some folks do this kind of thing all the time,
but I move a little slow having a full-time job.
I loved this linen with the yellow border
with some cutwork and embroidery.
I found a pair of sparkly earrings, that
I created to be a broach for Sadie's dress.
I twisted some sheep's wool together,
and stitched it to her head.
Her dress is a beautiful linen
with white-on-white embroidery
with a scalloped hem.
She is smaller than the others,
and has a rusty halo, and wings.
She also has a silver heart shaped
button at the neckline of her dress.
I couldn't get the pictures to truly show
the beautiful rose damask design on this linen.
A simple pearly white button was attached
below the neckline.
Her hair is a dark brown wool,
that was untangled and stitched to her head.
Their sister Olyvia was adopted today, so she
sat for a group photo before she moves on
to be with her new family.
(Snif, Snif!) I will miss her,
as she was my first doll in my series
of prim dolls with linen dresses.
Maybe next weekend I can get a leap on frogs!
I could be on a roll.....
