I was going to take a break on the swapping. But I may have to sign up for this one - I've been wanting to make some dolls and doll cloths lately (and to play with them!). I would love to have a black apple-type doll or a poppet. Most of my friends would think that sounds really strange for a middle-ager, but I know you guys would understand..... Grin

I understand! My mum thinks my love of dolls is strange and I'm only 18!

We had a black apple doll swap not too long ago.  I'm way, way older than 18, and the doll I received in my swap didn't go to my granddaughter (I make enough dolls for her), it is sitting my my couch. 
Have you guys ever checked out the Ruby doll pattern?  Here is the link.

Thanks for that link - I love her! I think I'm going to have to make her. Are most of you wanting to receive a sewn doll?

We do have one (if she signs up) who will make a doll from wood.  Also I would imagine that there are some knitters who might sign up and make a knitted doll.  Maybe someone could make a doll out of clay or perhaps someone might be able to do one from paper mache;  wouldn't that be nice?
