Teacup dollies

I’m very naughty writing up a blog post when I really should be writing up a pattern!!! For those of you who are waiting …. my Sashiko Tablerunner pattern is coming …… I promise ;o).

I stitched with my friends Valerie and Lynn yesterday and a new friend Wendy came along to join us too. We had such fun. We made these teacup dollies …..March 2010 118 Aren’t they all so different!!!??! None of them have a face in this pic … that’s as far as we got lol.

That’s Wendy’s in green, Lynn’s with the flash hat, mine has a halo and wings and Valerie’s has the basket full of fabric.

I managed to finish mine today. March 2010 132She has now got a face … March 2010 133and a little basket with her knitting, and a sewing machine in the other hand in case she changes her mind ;o).March 2010 134

Ok …. I’ll go and write up the pattern now :o)

Have a great day!!!!!

EDIT: - A few ladies have asked me where to get the pattern for these adorable teacup dollies. For the Aussie bloggers, it was in Country Threads last year Vol 10 No. 1. Or if you don't have access to that magazine you can go here to the Happy Hearts website for the pattern.

Joy the little ladies are just delightful. I have odds and sods of teasets that could get a whole new lease on life with those, just lovely.
