There were no actual dolls involved, but if you are curious about what fellow doll makers Peggy Flavin, Christine Crocker and I got up to with our dear friend Sandy Connors this past weekend, please visit Paula Walton’s 18th Century Home Journal. ❤
Once again the earth has turned and November has come at last, drifting in on gently falling leaves and soft, warm rays of light… More than any other month, November causes my soul to ring with echos of the past, and my thoughts meander to the people who have lived in my house and owned the things I love before me. I dwell and marvel at small girls, turned to woman, with babes of their own, who played with the dolls I cherish. I glory in the vibrant creativity of quilts, pieced by other hands and passed down through the years, to warm loved ones… Days and hours slip away and gently flow into the past, where I allow myself to linger for a few brief hours, lost in a daydream of past childhoods.❤
The Great Pumpkin arranged for my Halloween treat to come on Sunday at the Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market🙂 Not being a small tyke who can go door to door with glad cries of “trick or treat”, I did have to take myself to the flea market, wander down endless rows in the crisp early morning autumn air, and actually pay for my treat… but it WAS an excellent treat none the less! I discovered three early damaged quilts to add to my fabric collection! Two of the quilts were clearly made by the same hand, as they are constructed in the same design and have a few fabrics in common. One is a heavy winter weight quilt and the other is a light summer quilt. The third quilt though is the one I love❤ , a stunning log cabin, done in reds and browns… Better than candy any day!
