    Ya'll said you would like to see more of my dolls so here they are. The birdcge doll was made for a challenge at a retreat. The topic was movies. She is bye bye birdie. Inside the cage is nothing but feathers from the escaped bird. The primitave doll was made for a challenge for an online club. The mermaid was made for a donation for the local symphony for a silent auction. She sold for $350. I never try to sell my dolls cause you never get out of them what went into them. So I prefer to gift them when they tell me it is ok.

    I don't sell them because when I tell people the price I want for them they have all kind of remarks like "for a cloth doll?" or something else to deminish the worth. I put a lot of time and thought into them and I want them to be appreciated just like we feel about our quilts. I sometimes give them to people who express a real liking for them but don't ask if they have a price or to a friend who is having a bad day.

    Those are absolutely adorable. I have always been so fascinated with how they are made. Lots and lots of time :). Your mermaid one is so pretty! You have a wonderful talent! Hope you keep making them.

    They are very beautiful. I am not surprised that you got that much for it. I can see that there are lots of little "extras", too.
