By special request! Meet Elsa!

I mentioned before that I was working on a doll by special request.  She has blonde hair and blue eyes and her name is Elsa (her name was inspired by a special "little" girl I know).  I am working on a dress for her, so she is currently wearing one of my daughter's doll's dresses (not made by me) that I just love - something about gingham! Here are some photos of Elsa!

By the way, I just signed a contract for my studio renovation and am so excited that construction will begin very soon!! If all goes well, I will be able to move my sewing table/machine into the new space some time in July.  I can't wait!!! Then my daughter's bedroom will truly be HERS and no longer sharing space with all my supplies and equipment and mess!

Also, we have laid out the grass seed for our new lawn space (under the hammock area) and I am waiting (not very patiently) for the seed to germinate!  I have been watering it every day - sometimes more than once on the sunny days. Sigh! No sight of little green grass seedlings!!  Please think green thoughts for my lawn!
