Dessadoll, don't you have any friends or neighbors with a machine. I'm so sorry for you luck. I'm hoping to get mine posted tomorrow. Need to pack the box, put in a few little extras, the note is written and the box is huge, I went over by 2 inches. LOL I have lots of newspaper and stuffing (ha ha) to get the package firm enough. Hope the shipping isn't too bad.

Thanks.  I am really hoping I can still get it done.  I do have friends with machines, but not in the little town that I live in.  I would have to drive to the city to use them.  Its all good.  Keep the send out date, and I will bust my behind and do it by hand.

I sent out today and because priority was so expensive sent regular mail. I did insure it with the DC number but sharalee probably won't receive until the 12th. I love this doll and think/hope she will as well.

Okay, feeling good. The doll is almost finished - one ear didn't catch while sewing the body parts together but I will open up the seam and reattach tomorrow. Just a few little embellishments and a little extra and I'll send on Friday.
As always, I am the 10 o'clock scholar!

Usually, when I am sewing a doll or monster, I think of a name and personality. But nothing came to me this week as I was making all the parts and face and bits. So I hope I have an inspiration overnight.

 Grin Wink Cheesy

I AM DONE!!!!

It may be 1am, and my fingers are numb, but I finished! And early to boot!!

I don't usually name the dolls I make, but she literally told me her name. And it really suits her personality.  I will only share the name with my partners permission, incase she wants it a secret until she gets her.

Send out in the morning!!

Ps...squeezing with excitement! So ready to send her on we journey.

 Wink

She is fully jointed.  So I tucked her legs up over her head, and her arms around her legs, and tied her tight with fabric.  Then put it in the box.  I was shocked she fit.
