Happy New Year :-) / Pat's doll revealed

Happy New Year!  Thank you for the good wishes that have been left.  If I don't pop round for a visit today I will in the next few days :-)

The doll has been long made, but the recipient, Pat, was away for Christmas. So here she is in all her glory.

Not my usual type of doll, but Pat is soooo into grunge and loves the Stampotique stamps by Jill Penney & Daniel Torrente, so I made the doll in a similar style.  And though it's not my usual style I do like her myself :-)  the fabric is some that I had mono-printed some time ago at the doll group I go to in York.

Yes the doll is gorgeous I love her and she takes pride of place next to the wonderful felt wall hanging you made me. As everyone else has said you are so clever.
Thank you

Well I really don't know what to say, Pat looks so sweet and innocent, mild mannered, you would never believe she was into this way out stuff. What a great job you have done. Well I think it is way out, obviously she doesn't but so glad that she loved it. Great piece of work.

I was totally surprised when I saw what the sneak peek was. And that doll, although not my style either, grew on me the more I looked at her. She sure has character and lots of sass. Happy New Year, in case I forgot to tell you. You are SO sweet to visit so many times and I am seemingly always late lately.
