Happy New Year!

It's rainy and drab here, but oh so very, very cozy inside! I have stew simmering on the stove and I'm peeling some granny smith apples for Swedish apple pie. Yummy!

I thought it would be fun to see what dollies came from Tender Arts Studio this year. I started by finishing Meg March (above). What a pretty girl she is!

Then sister Amy followed Meg to her new home in New York.
Rosalie the gypsy was completed during the summer. She went to her new home during the Christmas season.
Joy, who I adore, is still with me. I think I will re-list her. She is the size of a bleuette, but is made of cloth.
Baby Alice did get finished, finally, but she needs to get listed. She gave me a lot of trouble!
Miss Raggedy Lu and Miss Raggedy Lilac were made as gifts from a pattern by Raggedy Old Annies. I felted real wool locks to their sweet little heads. They were a very fun project.

On the work table currently are three little character dolls (plus their own tiny dolls!) from this beloved series of books. So, I guess I better get busy!

Happy new year, friends! Wishing you all the best in 2011!
