Here is the doll that Bev Torres made for me in the Bunny Doll Swap that Susan O'Conner of Rabbit Hollow Prims put together.
The swap was so much fun as the others have been . I feel like another friend has been found !
Isn't this design of Bev's adorable. The curled toes and hands are adorable. She did a fantastic job on her.

Susan O'Conner of Rabbit Hollow Prims had another swap for us ladies. I was partnered with Bev Torres. This is the Easter Doll that I made for Bev. She was approx. 20" tall. An osanberg cloth body that was tea-dyed. I used vintage linen for the inner part of her ears. Love to add bling so made a nylon net petticoat. The eggs in the basket were made with paper mache' pulp, then I painted them white with a staining over them. She hasn't decided what color to paint her Easter eggs. Will post pictures of the rabbit doll Bev made for me just as soon as the weather is sunny and can get a good shot.
This is a photo of my fat Tuxedo Girl , Sadie Mae. She loves to lay on the floor by my sewing machine , or once in a while she will jump onto my chair if I move for a while. She is definitely a momma's girl! She was a rescue kitty. A family was unable to keep her, so she came to our home and hearts. Aren't God's companions wonderful! This photo actually makes her look slimmer than reality. One of these days will get a good shot of her sitting with white belly showing.

DRYER LINT CLAY
Now, for those of us that love to create , thrifty with our money, and save the earth, well here is a unique clay that works well!
You will need:
3 Cups Dryer Lint 2 Cups Water
5 Drops of wintergreen oil (but you don't have to use this)
1 Cup Flour
Put lint in a saucepan. Cover with oil and water. When lint is saturated add the flour. Stir until smooth.
Cook over medium heat. Stir constantly till peaks form and holds together.
Pour in onto a newspaper to dry.
Now you can model with it. Put unused in a plastic bag. Will only last a couple days this way. Dry finished modeled product for 5 days.
