Meet Crissy She was made in 1969 by Ideal, holds her age well I think. I don't know how she has managed to maintain that girlish figure either?
A work friend and I were reminiscing about our Crissy dolls. We both didn't have our original dolls but had bought replacement ones.My mum bought me mine about 16 years ago at a doll show as she knew I desperately wanted one.
My friends doll had the original orange dress. This pic shows what a new Crissy looked like. Isn't she gorgeous.
My poor girl has a homemade replacement that she came to me with. As for the shoes.... They arrived yesterday with thanks to 'evilbay'. I think she is rapt to have her original shoes. Now to find that dress......
71 flowers quilted
26 leaves quilted
I didn't get any done the last two nights but roll on the weekend and I will get stitching....
Tomorrow I will pick up a quilt that has been machine quilted. Life is beautiful will be coming home after two months at the quilters. Can't wait to pick it up.
I hope to drop off another top to the quilters. It is a beautiful hexagon quilt that I adopted from Nicki from plushcat. The quilt was made by Nicki and started when she was 14. (so it is about 20 years old.) She wanted to rehome her quilt top and I was lucky enough to give it a home. I bought some fabric for the backing so it is ready to go.I don't think I could face hand quilting this one as well so machine quilting it is. Here are some pics... it was hard to photograph as we have strong winds here today.
I just love it!!
|this is the backing fabric I chose on the right. Thanks to Sandi at Crafty lady.|
