I made my 127th Ruby Lou Doll the other day. I guess technically it wasn't my 127th, but it sure feels that way! Sometimes I think to myself, am I really making another one? And then I have so much fun once I get started and think to myself, hmmm, what fabrics should I use for my next one?!
I love picking out the fabrics (and I love that I get to pick out several cute fabrics, it makes deciding way easier!), and I love embroidering her little face on and seeing her really come to life.
This Ruby Lou doesn't have a home yet, but I've actually given away all the other dolls I've made, and felt like I should have at least one "on hand" for myself. We'll see how long I can keep her around until I give her away too! Poor Ruby Lou...
This week, Katie from Notes From A Very Red Kitchen is hosting a really fun giveaway. Two readers will win a PDF Ruby Lou Doll Pattern, and the best part is that I'm joining forces with Cherry Lane Textiles for the giveaway and she's including scrap packs of designer fabric to make your doll with! I asked Katie if I was allowed to enter my own giveaway, and luckily I have enough tact to NOT, but I would really love to win a fun scrap pack!
Go here to enter Katie's birthday giveaway! And it wouldn't hurt to wish her a happy birthday too, of course :). I know I'm not a more-than-one-post-a-day blogger, so if you're coming to link up to We Did It! Wednesday, you can go here to join in!
