These dolls will be on exhibit at the Sewing Expo at the end of this month, at the IX center in Cleveland. The doll club "High on Dolls" that I belong to, has a table to exhibit our dolls. The theme of the challenge was "A doll riding a ______". These 3 will be there., The fish is a Julie McCullough pattern, the elf in the nest is a Cyndi Mahlstadt pattern that I learned in the fall at MMM, and the snowman on the goose is a patter by that I had made for my mother's birthday. I got that pattern in Holmes county (Amish country) at the best store for patterns of all types, lots of wool, primative items, etc. Just a jam packed place of fun. I think it is Country Craft Cupboard.
I made the nest for the elf to ride in and gave it wheels. He is "Taking the kids for a ride". There are eggs in the nest with him. I am really happy with how it turned out. The fish is just plain fun, I LOVE the colors., This lives in my art room and hangs in the window.
Have been busy trying to make things for clubs and challenges. I am off for the next (5) GLORIOUS days! and hope to get things done. I am booked solid with fun things to do, artsy stuff and visiting. I will post again while I am off to show you what I was able to make.
