Americana Dollie...

And here is the dollie I made for a Dear customer of mine. For the longest time I was not taking special orders...I have since then "re-thought" that situation. It still depends on the piece. Re-creating this dollie was fun. I had not made her since 2006, so it was like I had never made her. She is a BIG dollie. She was made using an adapted Crabby Gabby pattern.

Not very good pictures, but I thought I would post her anyways. I t was very, very bright out. She is so sweet in person. Her baby doll is just the sweetest lil thing. My dollie that just sold on ebay last night (Pumpkin Witch), she looks tiny compared to this dollie. She is definately going to make a statement in my customers home. She is already on her way home.

Today I must get crackin on something for ebay or the Mercantile. ~Christmas in July~ for the Mercantile......hmmm, I will have to see what I can pull out of my hat. *smirk* It will be fun. I may do a Winter/Christmas piece and if time allows, maybe a regular or All Hallow's Eve piece. It is hard to think of Christmas time when it is soooo nice out.

I did have a "Christmas Kick" the other day. I watched (while making my dollies) "Christmas with the Kranks" and "Deck the Halls", so odd. My workspace now has a tv with a DVD player, so if there is nothing on TV and I want to watch, I can pop in a DVD. Our little 13 inch TV went ca-put a couple of weeks ago...so I went and purchased one with a DVD, it was only a bit more.

Okay kiddies, I must shake a leg...I got lots to do. I hope you all have a GRAND day. Toodles for now, ~Tonya

Hi Tonya,

Wow, I do love this dolly. It is wonderful and different. I am sure she will be thrilled.

Christmas...Lol I was wondering when I could start making all those patterns I got from you, but I have to wait cuz halloween is on my agenda for next month...(group thing) I am excited cuz I want to try your stocking and some shakers from Pea.

Anyhoo...I hope your arm feels better! My head is better now and I got my dolly finished. Now if I can only work on my penny rug....uggh

Have fun my friend! Hugs

ROFL!! We watched Deck the Halls, too!! We are Netflix members and it popped up as a suggestion so I clicked on it. We LOVED the lights on his house and thought it was an "okay movie"... guess I should have waited until the fall to put it on the list. I think I have been banned from adding movies for awhile hehehe!!!
