Josefina....Modern Day

I have had lots of people ask me where I get my dolls, and if I would sell any.....so I have decided to put some up on Ebay.  After a while...you end up with just too many girls....This is a Josefina I got in a lot of 4 dolls off of Ebay...they all needed tons of work.....She has been nicely cleaned up and since her hair was chopped...I moved the part to one side, just a bit, and shortened it, She is now a modern gal.  Eventually, I want to make sets of undergarments for them...I hate seeing them nude...but wanted to get some up on my store for the holidays.  You can see her at:
 Working on cleaning up a Kit...just restrung her legs, and will be doing her arms next....che is all cleaned up, and hair is good, so she should be up soon!!!!

Felicity's Riding Habit

I got all the fabric for this and just wasn't sure what I was gonna do for the front closure.  Wasn't really wanting to get started on it, and then a stumbled across these gold frogs......they were perfect.  Really pleased with the way it came out.

Samantha's Tea Dress

I wonder just how long Samantha would keep this dress clean?  She tried so hard to be the perfect young lady for Grandmary....it was so hard!!!!  She does look like the picture of sweetness.  You can find this and other Samantha outfits on my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/prairiewindgirls

Gettin' caught up on Quilts!!!!

I found the perfect pattern for Caroline's quilt....bought the fabric...cut the fabric...only to find that the dimensions she gave were off....big-time.  So I had to re-figure some of the quilt...it is nothing like the way it should have been, but I like the way it came out!
