What's New

It has been a long while since I have posted anything new going on with me... I have continued to work on my drawing and painting signed up for a few more courses to help me get better...

STORE MAKE OVER... Me and my Step Father have been working on rremoving walls and finishing up the make shift add on we did last year.. He has been busy tearing down walls rebuilding counters, putting up new walls, painting etc.. I will be going up in a couple of weeks to start decorating for our reopening in March.. We close down in Jan - Feb... So with that coming I have been busy catching up on making some Annie's.. I sold out last year and don't have many dolls left... I had an order come in for a couple of Annie's so I thought best make 4... so here are the two left still waiting on there hair... I have doll parts everywhere.. Today I am working on the dolls to the left.. this is a sweetmeadows pattern.. I have been so scared to tried these faces.. but I have to say I am happy with how they turned out.. After I get these piles of Annie's done up I need to get a few bunnies done up.. We are getting snow here today.. this winter has been a weird one... We are getting snow to the east and west but not were we need it .. Vancouver needs it for the Olympics.... I can't wait for them to start.. Well that is all that is about new here in my life.. I will be back to chat some more soon.. hopefully will have some new store pictures to show you all.. Thanks for listening to me go on..

good to see you Ann, LOVE THE PAINTING SO FAR!
Good luck with the shop and lots of sewing. I hate doing the same doll over and over. Drives me nuts, don't know how you do it.
Hugs,Pea

I love their faces. They look very sweet and whimsical. What more can you ask for. You have quite the assembly line going there. Do you stain all your fabric before you make the dolls? I would assume you did, having to make so many. It would be a real chore to do it any other way. Well, for me who is just learning the ropes of the primitive doll making. Anyway, I love your Annies.

Hi Jan thank you for your kind words... I stain all my dollies after they are stuffed, never liked how they looked when I would pre stain my fabric... I have had these dolls in the works since last June.. had them all traced out ready to sew up for my fall show and well I just ran out of time..... So I put 8 hours or more a day in on my work.. seems like it will never end but it does.. lol.. Thank you again.. Ann

LOVE your website and dolls! I'm somewhere like an intermediate prim doll maker and am constantly looking for mentors and inspiration.
