This is the doll I created for The Gypsy Challenge. Actually I remade the one from the San Diego Quilt Show Dimensions in Doll making. The one I origanally planned to make just would not come together. But I reallylike this one. Her name is Autumn. Maybe I will make her three Sisters. Winter, Spring, and Summer

I just finished a doll for our doll challenge at IOLCC, the doll club I belong to. Check out the link to the clubs blogsite. I will put a picture of her up after the challenge. I have been very busy at work with the Del Mar fair so I haven't made any other dolls but three of my dolls were featured on the latest issue of Art Doll Quarterly. Yeahhhh... I will try and get pictures of them on the blog soon. They are presently at the Del Mar fair in Sew Pro's booth.

This is Florence. She is a just for lauphs doll I designed for a class a few years ago. She is only about 11 inches and is great for your computer desk of beter yet to hold your business card on your desk at work. She has button joints and posable fingers. She prefers slippers to shoes and always wears skin tight pants but as you can see has lots of personalities.

I have been working on starting a doll ministry. My minister has been challenging us to Do Something in our community and since I am a doll maker and that is my passion, I have been really lead to make dolls for the police dept. Right at the present time I have a sewing where I work, Sew Pro's Sewing and Vacuum, once a week but I have hopes of expanding it to be a real ministry at my church. The dolls we make Get a home in the back of a police cruiser and someday into the arms of a child that could use a little comfort. Whether they are the victims of abuse, fire, or an accident, having a dolly to hug can make the experiance a little less frightening. I have such a heart for this misistry. As a small child my brothers and sisters and I were taken to a childrens shelter for a few days and I can remember how frightening it can be to not really understand what is happening and not really trusting the police officers. This is a way for the officers to reach out to the children.
