Meet Ellen!


Here's what I did last night instead of quilting. I wanted to do something small that I could finish in one day. And so I made this little doll for my daughter and named her Ellen. But then Ellen needed clothes and facial features and hair...I was up half the night creating like Frankenstein! It's a bit unclear in the picture, but she even has a little pocket with baby ric rac on it. Ellen's dress still needs straps and velco on the back. And I'm going to pick up some pink fabric paint today to paint on some shoes and maybe underwear.
I think this little lady will make a perfect Easter gift for Grace. I also have some fabric play food on the back burner, but for today I'm back to quilting!

Very cute! I love those one day projects myself. You make me laugh though because when you left your comment on my blog you called me Amanda!:) Her and my style is a lot alike plus she had done a tutorial on boxes also. I just use a frame (so to speak). She and I will get a good chuckle from that!:) It's a HUGE compliment to me. Seeing she is who taught me everything.:) Have a great day! Heather
