Well, Katie is back by popular demand. I was asked to do this doll for a friend who's mother bought this same doll about 27 years ago at a craft show. Katie has always been a hit! She is 18" tall and is soft sculptured. She has flower eyes, hand stitched nose and mouth, sculptured fingers, ears and dimples in the knees. She has a pink with butterflies dress with matching panties and an eyelet pinafore. Her socks are real baby socks with felt shoes. I have hand stitched each strand of her hair on and added ribbons to her ponytails.

She is always a joy to make - she just comes to life right in front of me!!!!!

If you are interested, she is $40.00 plus shipping. She can be made in different colors to suit you.

It has been a great weekend, went to a hosta walk on Saturday and spent the rest of the day in Columbus. I had never been to a Hosta walk - they had over 600 hostas at this farm north of Columbus, Ohio - could have spent a fortune - but only bought a half of dozen. Beautiful speciums!

Thanks for looking!!!!!

As you can see I am expanding my blog - I am now going to be posting many things that I make. For instance, let me introduce you to Lizzie & Lenny - they are looking to be adopted by a loving, cozy family. They are 18" soft cloth dolls that are now on my Etsy page - go to to see their profile.

I haven't been on here much lately because after doing the Memorial Day Parade, that I described in a previous post, I immediately starting on the Cancer Relay for Life that was held from 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 p.m. the next day - June 5th & 6th. I was the Captain for our Exchange Club so I had to make sure every thing was organized. It was really a lot of fun, and very, very heart warming. I had a luminary dedicated to both of my parents who passed away from Cancer and I walked in the survivor walk as I am a twice survivor of melanoma! Thank God for great Doctors! I truly believe that they have saved my life. If you have never participated in one of these it is well worth doing - it makes you feel so good that people care!!!!! We are going to beat this Cancer thing!!!!!!!

Oh, by the way, I donated a print of my Kohl dog painting that is posted here on the blog. They promoted it by saying that it was done by a cancer survivor! The gentleman that won it was tickled!

So - now I hope to be better at updating my blog. I will probably be posting in another couple of days!!!!!

Happy Painting everyone!!!!
