Sophia and A New Adventure

Awww, Sophia is finally done and ready to be packed and shipped to her new home. This dolly is going to be a birthday present for a little girl by the name of Sophia. Her grandmother wanted her name on the apron. Yellow was the chosen color to coordinate with her bedroom. Happy Birthday Sophia!

Now for my new adventure. Besides enjoying sewing dolls, I also love stitchery (and can't forget working with wool!). I've wanted to start drawing some stitchery patterns. In fact I have a few that I've done for my Christmas craft show. I sketched the two pillows below and hope to soon sell the pattern in my Etsy shop as an epattern. The pillows are measured 9" x 7" and are very easy to do. I am still working on how to get these patterns set up as an epattern. I hope to have them ready by the end of the week. There are so many ideas going through my head - just finding the time to do it all! I really need to retire soon! I hope you like them.

Until next time...have some more dolls to do for customers and I really want to do a Raggedy Ann doll without the painted eyes soon.

Hugs to all!


  1. Oh Pat...I just love your little Sophia! I could just squeeze her!
    Your dollies are just beautiful and you amaze me with your work in wool, too.

    Good luck with your epattern adventures.


  2. LOVE IT! My favorite color YELLOW.


  3. Ilona - thank you for your nice comments. I still have the two sister dollies you gave me in our swap. They keep me company in my craft room!
    Carolyn - yes, yellow is a nice color - brings in the sunshine in our life! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I absolutely love your creations, Pat. They are so alive and full of light. As for time.... I retired almost five years ago... I still can't find the time to do everything I want to do. Life is so full.. sometimes I just get overwhelmed. Then I just sit myself down and work on the one thing in front of me. Hugs to you and your precious dolls, Vicki

  5. Absolutely darling-:) you are so talented

  6. Sophia is so beautiful. I know Sophia is going to be tickled when her grandmother presents her with Sophia!

    Love your stitchery. I hope your epatterns go over as well as your raggedy dolls do. :)

    Thanks so much for linking up to the party! I featured you over at the Sunburnt Cow.
