Doll Dressing

What a goofy morning! I just can’t help having fun when I’m playing with dolls.  The girls each have an American Girl doll – and we have such fun dressing them.  Making them outfits is so enjoyable, I decided to start adding some doll skirts to my skirt of the day project on Etsy.

I just went into the girls room, took Kit out of her bed, found a lovely white blouse that Gramma made for a Christmas present, and some little white shoes.  I felt guilty! Like I was shirking my work! But… ta da! This is work!  Here is the first skirt:

Raspberry, apple green, and a lemon yellow ribbon trim.

Trunk Show Shipment

I sent a big shipment of Hazel Anne designs off to Maine for a trunk show recently. My loyal friends from when we used to live there hosted for me.  Melinda had a tea party during the afternoon for moms, girls and their dolls, and Lilly hosted an evening soiree at her place for the grown up set.  Melinda said that the “girls turned tea drinking into a sport”!  I set hibiscus petals to pour hot water over – a big dose of vitamin C, and an intense pink color make it one of my winter favorites.

I sent almost all skirts – for women, girls and dolls, along with some wraps/ponchos.

Here are a few shots before packing up:

women's skirts with a few wraps in the middle of the stack.  they look so pretty together!

womens skirts all stacked up - don't they look pretty together?

Soon (really soon, I promise)  I’ll update the web page so some of these styles and colors can finally be purchased online, as well as at trunk shows!  Next one in Asheville, December 3rd and 5th.  Back to the machine and cutting table….
