A Done Doll

I finished the Little Dutch half-doll pin cushion.  Cute.  I did it my own way.  Which is like saying that I didn't follow the directions.  But I'm happy with how she turned out.  I have had this poor little half-doll sitting around for a couple of years so it's nice to have her all done.

She is much smaller than my other one.

I have another half doll that has been sitting around for a while too.  I ordered her pattern last June from a needlework store.  Ten months and no word on my order.  So I ordered the pattern from another place two weeks ago.
I think that order is on its way.
I started the next panel of Can't See the Forest.  I think I can get it done today.  It is nice to make good progress on something.  Margret asked me about the stitch I used for the white flowers.  It is a stitch I learned from Cynthia Zittel of The Drawn Thread.  It is called Boucle stitch.  I haven't looked to see if you can find how to do it on the web but it is probably out there somewhere.
I got a kit in the mail from Jenny Adin-Christie.  It is wonderful.  I'll show you tomorrow.
