My New Pattern Published in Contemporary Doll Collector Magazine

I just had to share some very exciting news... I just received my "Contemporary Doll Collector Magazine", the March 2010 issue. How thrilling it is to see my newest mini Cloth Doll Pattern published in this magazine... Wow! This is a picture of her and above the magazine you will find it in. To date she is the smallest pattern I have created. She is 7" tall and can hang. Her name is "Little Victoria, The Dream Fairy".
Also in this same publication on page 16 is my "Cryatal, Mermaid Of The Lake Doll". CD Patterns are available for her in my eBay Store @
What a great Christmas gift!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

New! Shabby Pink Pillow

I just finished making this Shabby, Victorian Pillow with a fussy cut Fisher Lady image.
This picture is just a quick take. I will be taking several more and posting them in my eBay store over the weekend @ on auction.
It measures approximately 15X15", including the ruffles. I embellished it using Pink Silk Ribbon, assorted beads and sequins. I fussy cut the Fisher Lady image and some flowers and leaves, so she looks like she is coming right out of the flowers.
More detail and pictures in my eBay Store.
Thank you for visiting! Caroline
