~Americana Libby~

Here is ~Americana Libby~ on Ebay!
Meet ~Americana Libby~ She is all decked out in her finest Red, White and Blues! I must be feeling better, because this was my latest obsession for waaaaay too many hours! I got lost in the details again...
A bit of a shaded picture, but I thought it looked neat and wanted to show the Flag garland that comes with Americana Libby...

I made Libby complete with a "Firecracker" treat bag (with 4 wooden firecrackers) , USA Banner, Star Badge, Flag and the flag garland. There are so many different ways she can be displayed. She is going to have a Reserve, I must protect all my time invested...

Pictures were a bit difficult today. I was fighting the wind, clouds and rain (on and off). I think Mother Nature won...I ended up taking some pictures inside too. I used wonderful wool from Ann of Crowing About Primitives again. Love her wool! I adore this grouping...

She will be listed on ebay this evening, for 5 days. She will end on Wednesday. I was making this dollie for the Mercantile, but missed the boat. *smirk* I always seem to be a day late and a dollar short. So there will be no new dollies on the Mercantile this month...

The Flag banner is all handstitched onto to sisal rick rack and finished with handmade glass glitter stars. It has 7 flags and measures I think 7 feet, I will have to double check that for sure. I hope you enjoyed my ramblings on my latest piece.


Today I was a chaperone for Sydney's field trip...to the Historical Museum again (the same one I did for Courtney about a week ago). It was still okay, anything to make my kiddies happy...well not anything, but you know what I mean. Well, I must go I have many things to to and also get this dollie scheduled. Have a wonderful evening. Toodles, ~Tonya

Hi Tonya,

Of course I had to show your doll off to my honey. He loves the fabric. He really liked your butterfly, to! I was soooo serious about just buying your stuff. I could have a room full and just sit in there and gock all day. LOL I'd never get anything done then.

Hugs,

Jenny

Hi Ton,
Been awhile since I went blogging and I kind of skimmed. Love this new set!!! Looks like a lot of work! So you kept the kitty huh? I guess we just can not resist those eyes looking at us. And those eyes say "Love me". Kids are getting so big, they all grow up so fast. At least you have gotten to get out and get some goodies and relax a little. Those little shops are the best! We all need to do things like that time to time.
Luv and Hugs Tam
