Dolls from a special friend

One of the best things about blogging is making friends.
Ancient Cloth has become a very special friend of mine.
She sent me these lovely dolls.   

I love their sweet faces.  
My little African American doll is so plump in my hands, I love the way she feels.
Her expression makes me smile.  She keeps looking in the kitchen to see what goodies I have in the oven.

Look at the details.  both have under garments.
The fabrics are so well chosen.
My little dolly is named Bree.
And the mother is named Nicole.

She has inspired me to make a doll.

If you have a handmade doll on your blog leave a comment and a link, I would love to see it.
All types of dolls welcomed!!
I fix tea and we can have a virtual tea party.
The cookies are cooling and will be waiting for you when you get here.

P.S. The dolls are sitting on my husband's antique Radiola 20. A tube radio from the 1920's.

I just joined your blog as a follower. Quilting is on my list of techniques I want to learn!

I am also on 14 Secrets.

What a generous gift! I love them both but the little Russian looking Bubba (grandmother) reached my Jewish heart.
So sweet and so well done.
Makes me want to make one too.

Hi Erika,
I am glad you are going to be following my blog. Having people to journey with is very special to me.

Quilting is really fun and can become as big as a quilt or as small as an Artist Trading Card or postcard. I know you are going to enjoy it if you are like me and love working with your hands.

I love 14 Secrets. There is a lot there to get my creative juices going.

Glad you introduced yourself and let me know when you come by again for a visit.

I love seeing the doll through your eyes. Totally a feel of the "old country". I just love holding her! I can't believe all the work and details.

Indeed a very special gift!!
