Busy, busy, busy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday I had a wonderful day visiting the beautiful cities of Temecula, then Vista with a group of friends, Brook, Joann and Christine, my buds.  We were checking with the shops to see how my patterns are doing (and to get more orders ;o) )The Wool Lady Ruth, was wonderful as usual.  I dropped off more patterns she reordered.  Then we visited the Quilters Coop. They sold out of my patterns.  Yeahhhhh!!!!The ladies there are great. My patterns are doing very well in both shops.  Then we decided to drive to Vista to Fat Quarters Quilt Shop to see if we could catch the owner Michelle there.  She was, and she is such a delightful person.  She is absolutely wonderful.  She loved what I am doing with my patterns and deceided to carry them.  I am so excited. 

Now I am back in the studio today, working my little fingers to finish up some new patterns I am working on.  Will post some picks soon of the new patterns.  For now, thank you for visiting and I will talk to you soon.

Sharing dolls from another artist

These are dolls I purchased from an artist from Tehachapi, Ca.
They were purchased approximately 6-7 years ago.  Unfortunately, she did not
sign the dolls, so I do not know her name.  The man is 6 1/2" tall and the woman is 6" tall.
I love the detail on the faces.
I think they look as though they are from the civil war era.  Maybe freed slaves.
I wish I new her name so I could purchase more dolls.
