It is the most beautiful of days today.  After the awful winter, I never thought I would see a day so perfect.  I went walking in the park this morning.  It was great.

I finished Shepherd's Fold!  I put it together.  Of course there were some hiccups along the way.  (Oh, no it doesn't fit.  Rats, I can see the cardboard through the edge.  The gathering thread broke @$#&&^. Etc.)
So here it is:

I did it my own way and I'm happy with it. And guess what I got in the mail yesterday?  Yes, the scissors fob that is the next part of Shepherd's Fold.  Sally says she might stitch it over one so that it is tiny.  I like that idea.  I'm changing the linen as linen that looks like it's been used to change the oil on a car is just not my style.

Then I realized that I forgot to show you the There's a Bird on the Roof all finished.  I'm not sure what I am going to do with it but it is a sweet size.

Then I got something else in the mail.  My half dolls!  They came in a little clear purse.

 But I ordered the Renoir one with blonde hair and a blue dress but I got the green one that is pictured on the front of Sampler and Antique Needlework.

I'm not sure what to do.  I'll probably just try ordering the blonde/blue one again.  They are very sweet.  They are also smaller than I thought.

 I got a small dutch one that will be adorable when it is finished.
Have a great day!


  1. Easy Fix! First email Elaine and tell her that you did not receive the blue Renior doll that you ordered. I'm sure she will say to mail her back the green one and she will send you the correct doll you wanted.
    They are beautiful though.
    CONGRATS on a stunning finish on SF. It looks gorgeous!!!
    love Annette

  2. S Fold looks great!
    Congrats on your finish.
    Bird on the Roof is cute.
    The dolls are beautiful.

  3. Hi Amy where did you get the order the dolls from?

  4. The Shepherd's fold is lovely. Can't wait to see the finished doll. Where do you order them?

  5. Oops! I'm curious with one they send me.

    It a lovely doll!
    Have a nice stitching day.
