My Halloween Swap doll has arrived

Tuesday I went out, and whilst I was out, the postman delivered a Parcel notice to tell me to go pick the parcel up at the post office. By the time I got home on Tuesday, it was too late to go get it, but yesterday morning I went and got it. This parcel was awaiting me.

As much as I wanted to rip it open, I had a bad hair day yesterday, and thought I'd wait till I was in a better mood this morning and open it up and take pics of it all.

This was my bumps in the night swap doll ALL the way from Becky Stancill in North Carolina.

This is a pic of my Annie, I love the colours of the fabrics in her dress.....the dotty one especially. Her dress is hand sewn.....OMG Becky, you have WAY more patience than me.

In addition to Annie, I also got this great hand knitted flower brooch/pin. I don't really wear brooches much, so I can see I'm going to have to make myself a flash looking bag/purse to put this on. It's lovely colours, which don't really show up as well as I'd have liked in the photo.

Then last of all, she made me this cute tissue pocket....the fabric on this is unusual in that all those dots are raised. For all the other tactile people out there....YES I do keep feeling the raised's almost as bad a compulsion as popping bubble wrap!

Thank you so much for being my swap partner Becky, I love ALL my goodies.

  1. You are so lucky to have such a great swap partner! Love the doll and agree with you on the colours. I am attempting to make dolls (3) but am having trouble with the hair :(. so really admire people who do good hair.


I love reading all your comments and will try to respond to each and every one.
