Anybody remember me? Proprietress of Tender Arts? Depending on what day you ask me, I will say that I am busy...or depressed. Maybe a little depressed because my time is so compressed now. Earl and I finished our first eight week course. English Composition. I'm happy to report that I got an A. Two weekends ago when I should have been working on my research paper for the course, I made an Easter dress for Wendy. Purty, ain't it?

It is ordinary yellow gingham, but it is fully lined in organdy. As you can see, the bib collar is organdy too. My embroidery is not as fine as Princess Nimble-Thimble's, but I do like the little flower detail that I added to the collar. This dress pattern was my own invention completely. I am so happy with how it turned out. I even splurged and got her new shoes for Easter too. This ebay seller has wonderful things for Wendy and Cissette dolls. I love this picture:"Easter Bunny! Where are you?"
I got to catch up today with some of my favorite blogs-that was fun! Now, I need to get work on the homework for our new class, Art History. Hugs to all!
