Raggedies Multiply!

It's late, so this will be short, but just wanted to post a new picture of the rapidly multiplying Raggedies. The small one, which is one in on the far right has a wooden head and her hair is sewn onto a toe of a nylon stocking, and then the "wig" is glued to her wooden head, The rest of her is cloth, similar to the others. I've got tiny ones in the works, too, but managed to leave them at my son and daughter-in-law's house when we visited last week. That will teach me to not check the room before we leave!!! I should know better at my age!!!

Raggedy Progress

Here are the ones that are just about done, clothes and all. While out garage-sale-ing today, I cut out and sewed three pair of the smaller bloomers--DH drove, of course. The FiberFest is the second weekend in October, and so I need to work hard if I'm going to have a good selection of my wares to sell.

Finishing What I Started---several years ago

Well, I have to get some items ready for the Fiber Fair which is happening the first weekend in October. I decided that I should be "orderly" about this and perhaps finish some things that I had partly done already. These little Raggedies came to mind, ones I didn't finish for the Tokeland sale about three years ago. The nice thing about dolls is that you can leave them and when you come back, they're right where you left them. And I'd had the rather unusual idea (for me, that is) of putting all of these Raggedies together in one place, so finding them was a cinch--this is not my usally MO, but I was glad I acted like an organized person, for a change. I've been working on them and will continue to work on them until they are all finished and dressed. Making the same thing over and over is also not my usual way of operating, but these little girls (and guy) deserve to be finished and perhaps under someone's Christmas tree. And besides, I REALLY like Raggedy Anns and never seem to tire of looking at them. I DO want to make some tiny ones, too. We'll see if I run out of time before I run out of ideas. That's what IS usual for me.
