You would think with 4 daughters that I would have at least one lover of dolls, but that is not the case. Over the years I have purchased some lovely dolls for them, only to have them sit like lonely wallflowers in a toy chest.
Last month I stumbled upon Jenny's page via the LIttle Cotton Rabbit page and instantly fell in love with her Garden Warrior dolls. When she posted the Lady Beetle, I was smitten......I LOVED her so much that I made her mine.
Jenny sent me the drawing that inspired the doll as well and it is beautiful. The drawing itself is definitely frame worthy. She is an incredibly talented artist.
I also purchased her Garden Warrior pattern so that I can give one a try, if I can ever find a few spare hours to sit behind my sewing machine again. How does life manage to get so busy?
Don't you just love the detail? I know I do for sure! I'm thinking that my garden warrior will be a Queen Bee...no surprise there...(grin)
...and then there is "Sweet Annie" or creepy Annie as Hannah and Courtney like to refer to her as...LOL. I love to watch the expressions on their friends faces when they walk into the living room and see her perched on my Norm Hall spinning chair....priceless!
The other day Courtney put her phone with some creepy music playing under her dress........I tell you it was rich....haha!
I keep telling them, she is not creepy, she is "sweet Annie", but every time I hear the girls comment on the creepiness it makes me secretly chuckle.....I like that Annie is a wee bit creepy...
Hmmm...I wonder what that says about me...LOL
