I love dolls of any kind and for awhile now I have been collecting half dolls to make into pin cushion dolls. Here I have a tiny 1" tall little doll along with a gorgeous german half doll that I made up along with a new wig for her. I have always worked with silk ribbon and fine threads and for a short while taught Brazilian Embroidery at a local needlework shop. Here are a few photos of some of my works in progress, completed dolls and a OOAK pin cushion doll that I sold to a wonderful collector in California. The top photo is 2 new dolls I purchased recently just waiting patiently for me to make them new dresses. They are so much fun to create...you just can't stop with one! ;-)

"We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
Happy Fourth of July!!!
