Hello Dear Friends! I've got some stitches to share! The first one is from Patti. I'm always delighted to see Patti's finishes. I love the way she incorporates antique skeleton keys on her keeps! They are so sweetly unique ~ don't ya think? Patti stitched the freebie ~*Wicked*~. Thank you, Patti, for stitching & sharing!
Patti offers many of her wares on TDIPT Mercantile. Watch for this pinkeep to be on her August 1st update.
Well, this next finish (finishes actually) are my dollies all dressed...
I did add a little bit of preserved Sweet Annie to each of them, tucked into the tie around their waist after the photo was taken, but they are finished! Some of you said you were not familiar with stump dolls. A stump doll, in my opinion, is just a simple doll that does not have any legs. This batch of dollies have been filled with fine sawdust and aged with my walnut & spice mix. I take great care with the finishing of my dolls. I use a machine to stitch the bodies, but always go back over the seams on the body with a hand stitch. I think this makes them more special. Adding decorative trims such as rusty pins, bells, old buttons, and a little bit of cross stitch are other things I do to make them even more sweet.
Most of these dollies are being delivered to friends, but a couple will be offered on Ebay soon, and one will be a giveaway as I said in a previous post. I'll let you know more about that this coming Friday.
Thanks for letting me share with you!
Many warm smiles,
~ Chicken Stitches! ~
