Challenge #3

This is "Aqua Petals" an original OOAK made for Ellowyne to wear in the Couture Doll Challenge. I loved making it and found this was the style I really love making. I guess I am a romatic at heart.
Challenge #4 is finished, photo'd and sent, but I cannot post here yet. Not until after Sunday.
In between all this sewing I am clearing out my sewing room of all the clutter. It has been needing it for so long. I can't believe the stuff I have saved and there there is the shear amount of stuff I have!!! UGH! Where did it all come from?

Challenge #2 Off to the Races, a day at the Ascot.
This challenge is lots of fun and is truely testing my sewing skills to the limit. To see more about this challenge got to There are 8 challenges in all and I just turned in #3.
I have designed cloth dolls for many years and still do occasionaly. But mainly my interest have been in the fashion doll zone and some vintage MA dolls. I have been sewing since I was 7 at the knee of my Auntie. She help form my love of sewing and still love it today. My dream is to design an outfit for a commercial doll for one of the big companies like Madame Alexander, Robert Tonner or Horsman. So I am working very hard now on that dream.
Check back when new items are due up.
