A shabby girl's delight!

When I popped over to have a look at Andrea's ebay auctions the other day I immediately fell in love with this young lady. Isn't she just beautiful? I just had to have her so I made a bid and I won! Lucky me. I am delighted to have her in my home and I am so glad I popped over to visit Andrea. You can visit her too at her blog "The Pink Poodle" and ebay here. Andrea sells wonderful items from Cath Kidston, home decor items, magazines, patterns/crafty books and more....
She is a vintage print by Strevens called "La Petite Modiste".

These two litttle girls were finished yesterday.
Do you remember my bag swap partner from Linda's bag and bucket swap - "Passionate Purple Quilter"? Well, she asked if I would make a doll for her in purple.
I couldn't decide which colourway to do her in so I made two for her to choose from.
As well as purple, Pam also loves butterflies. I found the perfect fabric! If you look closely you can see butterflies all over the purple fabric! I couldn't have asked for a better fabric to make them from!
My parents are visiting today, so I had better make this a short one.
I will get started on the dress tomorrow...
After quite a few requests, I will be modelling it for you to see!!!
Watch out here I come!

Hi, too funny Andrea had two smaller prints by the same artist, yours is a larger print isn't it? I bought one of the smaller ones and I love it, it is within sight in my 'studio' and I was tempted to get the one you got as it is Delicious!! I also love Andrea's eBay some of my favourite things have come from her!!
Have a great evening, kiss noises Linda Lilly Cottage.
