New Doll

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, or a Happy Holiday of your following. I finished "Give Us a Kiss", a doll designed by Colleen Babcock. She is so adorable. I love Colleen's dolls, they are charming.
I had her on a stand at first because I had to order the grapevine ball to make her mistletoe ball. The balls arrived yesterday and I decorated them with fake mistletoe and a ribbon and attached her to the ball last night and I really like her hanging from the ball. She looks a lot cuter in person but this will give you an idea. I loved the fabrics that I used also. They are Moda - Basicgrey, so they're not the traditional Christmas colors, but I really liked them. Her skirt is lined with the same fabric as her hat and her bloomers are white eyelet trimmed in lace. I got some really cute miniature buttons and Christmas decorations at Pat Catan's so she has holly on her lapels and a green tree on her hat and small white snowflakes on her mittens and a large snowflake on her apron.
I finished her Christmas Eve night, just in the nick of time so Santa could see her.
Well, now to decide what my next project will be, I have sooo many to choose from. I guess I should work on my challenge doll for Time For Dolls which is due in February, yes I guess that is the best idea.

  1. You are right, the pictures don't show the detail. The color choices were unique. She looks like she is waiting for her Prince Charming to take her to the Christmas Ball.
