Have you ever seen such an adorable Cheshire Cat? Isn't he sweet!!! Thank you Susan!!!
This is my swap gift from Sue at Rabbit Hollow Prims.... she makes the cutest folk art dolls and a whole lot of other characters. My son was over the other day and he mentioned how much he likes this grinning kitty, if it goes missing I'll know where to look!!!
My swap items are finally all finished and in the mail.....Thank you Cindy for waiting so patiently. Now I have a couple of more long awaited gifts to finish and then the big "giveaway", wow, I feel good!!! Need to pace myself but it does feel great to have checked off some important items from my to do list......don't you love it when you can do that?
These are my pin dolls for Cindy, I figured I would be ahead of the game, since I was behind, to make a snowman pin for Christmas.....feels good to get these little guys done....I haven't made pin dolls before so at first I struggled to know what to do, but I finally decided to make up my own designs.....
It was really important for me to do something special for Cindy at Thimbleprims Studio. You will remember that she made me a beautiful doll and sent me a wonderful parcel full of the sweetest gifts when my one of my doll swaps fell through......and she made more for other ladies too! She is so dear and sweet for stepping in and making me feel so good, I hope she is just as thrilled when she receives her parcel. I am blessed to have her and Susan for swap partners, they have been so super! If you have a chance pop over and tell those darling girls how awesome they are!!!

I'm late..... I'm late...... man I sound like a broken record! I am clearing off the table and almost caught up......three more parcels have been sent...
There is an end in sight. My apologies again to my swap friends......you girls are so kind and understanding......this is just a quick post to say the Mad Hatter left the building last week and hopefully he arrives at his new home soon.....
I'll be back to show you the photos of what I received and some more of the creations I sent. For now it is back to work......I need to stop lollygagging around the bathroom.....doesn't my Lupus know I have no time to be sick?
