New Dresses

Another re-run of my dolls - come along as we celebrate a past spring time.

I've been crocheting doll clothes most of the spring - and finally finished outfits for everyone.  Long dresses, like we used to wear in the early 70s.  The dolls think they are great fun - and enjoyed a day in the sunshine on the deck.

 Sunshine and flowers - and pretty new dresses

Abby, who is standing behind you?  Is this a new sister in our group?
It is me, Candace Diane, your new sister.  I came from a yard sale - and I didn't look this good to start with.

Someone got loose with some scissors - and look what they did to my hair - oh my, I was a mess for sure.

But look at my new do - I'm a Ginger and I think it suits me so well.  Don't you agree?

Poppy Sunshine and I are going to pick some fresh flowers in our little pails.  We are so fetching in our summer hats.
 Look. Abby, I have some cute kitties!  Oh Kyla, they are just adorable.

 Summer straw hats are perfect for our new crocheted dresses.

 Sally Jo, let's play catch with the beach ball!

Oh Samantha - what a nice tray of sandwiches - let's share with the other girls. Wasn't it fun to spend a nice day on the deck?

Such cute dresses you crocheted. I remember when you and Diane did dresses for your dolls in tandem. Such fun!

JoAnn - your crocheted dresses are lovely and perfect for summer. Your models are so cooperative - much better than working with kids and/or animals - LOL! And yes, your newest friend is stunning as a ginger!

That sure must have kept you busy. I remember getting a granny dress in high school. When my dad saw it, he refused to let me wear it again. He was a high school assistant principal, kind of strict, but only in things like that. I was a daddy's girl so I didn't mind too much. - Margy
