Look what I got today...

I was on the phone today with my friend Marica...when the doorbell rang... who is that I thought??? Maybe you will receive a big package Marica said...No ...I´m not expecting something... She was right...it was the mailman who had a package for me...
and look what it was...
Wonderful magazines...and look at that wool... :)
the wool is really hard to find in Sweden...so I´m making a very happy dance!!
...ohhh...love the colours...and look at that beautiful card...and who sent me this...sweet, sweet Colleen from Crazy for Primitive Quilts and Gardens...Wasn´t that a wonderful gift??
Thankyou so very much... :L

Since I have worked on a secret this week I can´t show you some photos yet... A couple of days ago I started a new stitchery... you Aussie´s might recognize it...
You see I have had this doll sitting all nude for a VERY long time now...poor thing..I´m so sorry... so I decided it´s about time to make her a dress...
...it became finished today...really hope she will like it..
...it´s made from the latest Australian Country Threads magazine...
I think she will have to try it out tomorrow...also made an appointment with the hairdresser for her...heard she was a bit excited about that...thinking of hairstyle and colour
So wish her good luck tomorrow!! It can be needed...cause I know the hairdresser.... ;)

  8. Country thread and homespun are just the best magazines aren't they. I love your dolly and I am sure she will be grateful for her pretty new frock. The stitching design is really pretty. Jo x

  19. Hey Stina! I lifted my blog curfew to come for a visit! Love the stitching you've done for dolly's dress - she will be the envy of all other dollies!! Of course, she will have to decide on just the right hairdo! Somehow, most of my dollies end up with red hair of some shade - not sure why! Oh, wait, perhaps because MY hair is usually some shade of red!!! ;0) Have fun hairdressing! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)
