After much hand basting, machine appliquéing, stuffing, machine and hand sewing, “Goodnight Irene” is complete.

I made her pattern basing it on my much loved Miss Annabelle, a favorite doll from my childhood. She is a big doll, about 22 inches tall, and about 14 inches seated. I drew and painted her face, giving her very pretty green eyes.

Here she is seated with “Lovely Lucy“. Both are available in my Etsy shop. More photos can be seen on Flickr.
I also spent some time today organizing our ruffingsartdolls Flickr photo album, adding sets off to the right to make finding dolls of special interest a little easier.

I’ve added a really cool Etsy widget to the home page of elizabethruffing.com I’m enjoying looking at all those thumbnails of my artwork grouped together on the page. So colorful.

And, we have Max Bailey cat dolls still to photograph!
