I have to share this photo

Isn't this wonderful? Karla purchased the pattern for Hester Prynne and altered her legs to make her stand.
I'm always amazed at the creativity you ladies show. I love the orange polka dots and the ruffles on her leggings are priceless!

New listings on Lemon Poppyseeds

These lovely ladies are my newest addition to LEMON POPPYSEEDS. The doll on the left is JellyBean The color of her dress just reminds me of those candies. She has wonderful 7" long feet and the most beautiful soft sculpted face.
The doll on the right is Stella a 28 1/2" tall cupboard doll. She's show here sitting but she looks wonderful hung by the thread I've attached to the back of her neck. She's made of fabric with a wonderful texture to the weave and after painting and staining, she looks as if she were made of coarse grained leather. Very unusual. Her muslin sheep, also handmade is stitched into her arms.

2 years ago, I met Carol Yapel  (the owner of Farley's Country Store in Chardon, Ohio AND one of the regulars on Prim Chat at blog talk radio) in person for the first time! We'd met ealier on the internet thanks to an internet radio show.
She came though Wisconsin again this year on her vacation trip to the boundary waters of northern Minnesota. She contacted me when they started home and I met up with her and her husband, Tim, in Tomah when they stopped for a bit of lunch.
It was so much fun to see them again and have time to talk in person!

New listing - Standing Folk Art Pumpkin Boy

I've just listed this new doll on my website LUCY'S LAZY DAYZ PRIMITIVES. This new pumpkin boy is 20" tall and stands by himself
He is made of muslin. The "ribs" of his pumpkin face are needle sculpted for that authentic pumpkin look. He's been stained with my coffee/vanilla mixture and painted with a nice rich, orange paint.
His eyes, nose, and mouth are also painted and the eyes and nose each have a white "highlight".
Elmer stands with the aid of wooden support INSIDE his body. He stands on a piece of oak, recycled from the top of a vintage table. The wood still has remnants of the original paint in spite of being sanded. I sealed and waxed it. He's permanently attached to the base which has a bit of moss glued around the fronts of his feet.

If you are feeling very creative, the pattern is available as well. Both can be seen by clicking on the WHAT'S NEW  button.
