A warm Hoosier Welcome

It has been a while since this Hoosier gal has posted anything. Am trying to get back in the groove . Will be posted sewing, decorating and crafting tips. I like frugality, using what you have in your present stash.

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.
