The Art of the Doll - updated

The past 2 weeks I have Crocheted 3 dolls. Each one is different. It is my own pattern and it is an experiment.  I had one gal want a crocheted doll for her birthday.  I have a couple of people in the nursing homes and I wanted to give a gift that would be a friend, an angel, a companion. These are not children's dolls, they are for those who need someone to talk to and to live at those times that we need that moment and no one else is around.

I have 3 more ready to be put together and will put those up as soon as they are completed. I am still experimenting.  I have one more thought. . .a pups.

I love to crochet and to come up with different ideas.  I also knitted my own patterns. .  my yellow cottage and an owl in yellow yarn.

As promised all 6 dolls. . .ready for a Friend.
Thank you so much for allowing all of us artists a place to show our works Eva and Kristin at Paint Party Friday.
