Purple Simplicity

As I was sewing this doll and her purple flower I thought of the song Purple Rain. Kept humming that tune - then as I started to dress her my thoughts changed to Donny Osmond and his purple socks! Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Purple Rain by Prince and Donny's purple socks. If you don't, then I know I'm getting old!

So from the song to socks and after finishing her up the first thing to come to mind was simplicity - how sweet and simple my little doll looks to me. I couldn't think of a name for her, but I'm sure when she gets adopted someone will give her a fitting name. How simple is that...


  1. Yes, I remember those two, esp. Donny/Marie! Does that date us?? LOL

    She's 'simply' adorable!!


  2. She is precious...kind of lavender, don't you think? I love her! ♥

    I just saw your bunny in the last post. I'm finishing three from the same pattern. Your bunny is awesome!! I love the shoes!

  5. Very very cute....and sssssh....that used to be one of my favorite songs...I even liked the movie! Wonder if Donny wore those purple socks on Dancing with the Stars? Hahahaa!
