MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Fast Friends and Publications

Last week I received a lovely email from Veronica who has been making the cutest little Dotee dolls that I have been admiring from afar.  She told me that Roxy wanted to come and live with me and she has arrived and is settling in quite nicely.  She and Pearl-y are fast friends already and have been sharing all sorts of confidences and secrets ever since she arrived.  See?....

Dotee Dolls were the original creation of Dot Christian and have become very popular all over the world.

Go HERE to visit Veronica and read her post about the creation of Roxy (while you're there, explore her blog and you will meet all sorts of little Dotees!).  Thank you SO much Veronica - I love her!!

Yesterday we drove over (four hours each way!) to pick up my books.  I am so happy to have that project finished and out of the way. I can't celebrate too much though, because there's still another one to go, equally as long (this one is 500 pages).

40 copies of these equals a LOT of weight!!!

Today the quote is from Joseph Chilton Pearce.... "To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong"

hahhaha.... there she is ...having some fun already.... I can't believe how quickly she got to your end of the country...it used to take more like 10 days ... but, it's a good thing....

Glad you are enjoying her Magpie... that's why I made them...just to add some fun and colour to a day......

I love those Dotee dolls, not sure how you pronounce the name Dotee, I have been an admirer of Dotee dolls for a while. When my handicraft group announced we were going to have a project this April making Rag Dolls I did wonder if I could make a Dotee doll, but I'm not sure it would count really!

Your photo album is lovely, a real treasure!

I am not surprised at all that Roxy has made herself at home with you and Pearl-y. Really you drove all that way for your book....wow??

Mosaic Magpie said...

Congrats on the book!
(And the title on the next project would certainly be a common entry in my diary, if I kept one!)
