I've been sewing.
...and I made a sweet little dolly for a young friend of mine (free PDF here).
I've also been cutting.
I used a free template from the generous CindyMindyPindy at Scherenschnitte and a new-in-the-box (and perfectly sized!) frame I found at the thrift store.
Mostly, I've been missing Me Darlin' Mither.
She was full of grace and she loved my little dolls, and bunting appliqued totes, and whimsical papercuts...
