Whatcha Working On Wednesday?

I have spent the majority of my summer cleaning...
cleaning two classrooms at school,
cleaning and helping Emily move (this was enjoyable),
cleaning the room Line left behind,
cleaning and helping mom move to the assisted living facility,
cleaning our own home...
Callie and I decided to take a break and create some dollies.
I've actually been working on these for weeks...
almost as long as a pregnancy.
After the body parts were sewn together,
they had a bath in vanilla cinnamon coffee,
and then, hung out to dry.
Now, stuffed, I can hand stitch them on our next car trip.
Their little dresses are done,
Hair, makeup and accessories are next.

They are almost ready to go up for adoption.

School Update
The Master Schedule is not complete.
There is not much I can do until I know which classes I teach First Term.
So I was going to take my mail to my classroom, but...
this sign was on the door.

Wet Wax
Keep Out

Well, hey...I can just come back another day...


I'd rather be sewing dollies, anyway.

Take care,
~Natalie

Your dollies are really cute! I think they will be adopted out very quickly. It's hard to believe school will be starting soon. The summer has gone by so fast!

Those dollies hanging on the line look like melted snowbabies. Can you tell the heat is getting to me?

Please post pictures of the dollies when they're completed. I'm sure they're going to be the cutest dollies in blogland.

Cute, cute dollies! I loved seeing them in the different stages.

I don't blame you at all... sewing dollies sounds like much more fun than being at school!
