Here are the two flower girls made from a Kate Erbach pattern called Etta Mae. The one on the right is my sunflower girl and the one on the left is a daffodil girl made by a friend of mine. We rubberstamped daffodils onto the fabric, large ones on the body fabric and small ones on the petal fabric. We added knee seams to the daffodil so that she could sit prettily.
The daffodil doll is a gift to her sister. I think this is her first 'artsy' type doll. She did a great job don't you think?

Oh, and I have to work on his fingernails.
Today I hosted the Christmas party for my UFDC Doll club. I had the house all decorated and cleaned last night until 1:00 in the morning. I guess that is actually 'today' and not "last night".
I have a few more decorations to put around before our annual Christmas Party and I will be done. At least in the decorating department. I still have 10 dolls to make for a commission I have which I am behind on, three Kings crowns to make before Wednesday for a living drive through Christmas nativity at my church. We have FIVE live scenes complete with huge backdrops, actors, spot lights, narration. I think you can see part of it at the website.
I helped to paint the backdrops and make costumes. But the poor wise men head coverings needed help this year. I'm thinking of using the bottom half of a gourd as a base for a couple.
Oh.. and then there are the Christmas gifts to make. And I have one more Christmas craft show to do this weekend. OK... I'm going to veg out on the sofa and watch tv until I fall asleep.

I am going to leave his coat as the original gourd part. I haven't decided about his hat. And I am hoping to do a little kitten and puppy in the back.
Here are a few of the gourds I made for ornaments. They are larger than you would think most ornaments are but they look great on a tree. They are around 7" tall.
