Emerson at the Beach

 Here are a few pictures of Wellie Wisher Emerson at the beach!

I made the dress from a Sofie Clareese pattern. It's so cute and nautical!

Emerson looking very serious at how big the water is!

Playing in the sand!
Smile for the camera!

Emerson is tired after a busy day, but she loves watching the waves!

Some Hearts for Hearts Pictures

 I took a couple of Hearts for Hearts dolls pictures for Dolls of Color Month.

Shola, who really needs some leggings under her jumper. 
I meant to crop this picture to hide her bare legs.

Nyesha and Rahel

I think that the Hearts for Hearts dolls are unique and beautiful, and I love them.

Pattern Review: Doll Tag Clothing Hospital Patient

 This was a sad project to have to sew.

I have a younger cousin in elementary school who needs to get ear surgery this month.

I felt really bad that I lived too far away to offer any practical aid. 

So instead I did what I do best, and I sewed doll clothes.

I made the Doll Tag Clothing Hospital Patient pattern, and I made doll sized hospital gowns.

The hospital gown pattern is very easy to make. To be honest, I am not sure why I already owned it, but I was really glad that I did.

The pattern was only two pattern pieces, front and back. It was so easy. That was good, because I was in a sleep fog and didn't have a lot of brain cells to devote to figuring out the pattern.

It is also very clever. The hospital gown overlaps in the back so that you don't have doll butt hanging out. I thought it was worth the price, even though it's an easy pattern.

I also used the Requiem Art Designs Face Masks pattern to make matching face masks.

I hope that it helps my cousin feel a little bit better about her procedure.

There are three cousins of the same age, and each one is getting a face mask and hospital gown.

I am not going to be accused of favorites, no way!

Nanea at the Beach

 I was able to take Nanea to the beach to get some pictures. 

Here she is, enjoying the beautiful view.

Looking for a relaxing spot!

Here she is enjoying the sun. I love her shadow!

Ready to swim! The wave came right up to her feet for this picture.

It was a great day at the beach, and I like the pictures I took!

Summer and Watermelon

 I grew watermelon in my garden this year.

One watermelon, for some reason, never got bigger than my fist.

However, it is the perfect doll-sized watermelon!

Here is Danielle with the watermelon. It's a variety called Golden Midget, and the outside turns yellow when it is ripe.

Here is Danielle with the watermelon cut open. Yum yum!

It's fun to get doll photo props for free from my garden!

Melody's Bingo Set

 I bought Melody's Bingo set a while back. This is the first that I have taken pictures with it.

Bingo is an important tradition in my family. My cousin has a bingo set that was bought by my great-grandmother in the 1930s, and we play a game with it every year.

That made me want this set every much, so that melody can enjoy the fun with her family and friends!

Here is Melody with the Bingo wheel and a Bingo card. This set really works, and it feels so heavy and real. 

There are lots of small pieces, and I was afraid I was going to lose one in the grass!

The set also comes with some doll food. I probably would have preferred that the food be sold separately, but I don't have much doll food, so it it is good to have some.

Melody is enjoying a cherry pie and ginger ale while listening to the radio in this picture. 
The radio is from her bedroom accessories set.

I thought that this is a really cute set, and it was well made. I am very happy to have it.

I was also very pleased with the pictures that I was able to get.

Here is a bonus picture of Melody on a bike!

Joss at the Beach

 Joss and I were able to go to the beach on a Monday in order to stay socially distanced from other people.

Here are some of my favorite pictures! 

Joss in her favorite place, the beach!

Ready to go swimming!

Sitting pretty!

Joss went hiking in the sand dunes after going swimming. That's why her hearing aid is out.

The water was a much prettier color from up above among the sand dunes!

Doll of Color Month

 September is Doll of Color Month on Instagram.

There is a new topic every day to encourage you to show off your dolls of color.

I am not going to follow every prompt, but I did try to follow some of them.

This led to taking some group pictures, which are very hard to do!

I am not totally happy with these pictures,but they do show the dolls I wanted to show!

All my dolls of color
