I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

Now these are just awesome. And seamless! I may actually end up making one. (All the seaming is always my problem with making little stuff like toys and dolls.)

Aww thanks Lulu! I'm writing a book actually- so you may get to read more of my writing soon (if I could stop being distracted by Craftster!!!) I'm Cutieknittahfairy on Ravelry Smiley

I'm not able to knit anymore really- unless I'm in a really warm place, then I don't feel like knitting lol. I have a chronic pain disorder (had it while I was writing aforementioned blog, you may remember me mentioning it) and its worsened to the point that I can't knit... I'm trying all kinds of treatments so I may be knitting again before long!

I was really inspired by your doll! I'm knitting vicariously through you!!!
Such beautiful work Cheesy
