Once I had received my swap person's name I set about making this funny, slightly bizarre, Long Person Doll.
Here is my long person I made for my partner. I've named her "June".
She is tall, yet fluffly.
She obviously likes to cook (well...she is wearing an apron)
She's a bit of a June Cleaver (she's wearing pearl earrings and full makeup)
And I had a blast making her out of little bits and scraps of what I had on hand.
See? Her apron ties in the back above her low riding waistband on her ruffley skirt.
In retrospect, June is rather plain from the back. She probably could use a wardrobe organizer to give her fashion advice.
I received a wonderful package in the mail from my swap partner, Fiona, who lives in England but is soon moving to New Zealand. Fiona's blog, Foot on the Treadle, is a great place to view her exquisite quilts and handmade sewing items. Well! Just look at my sweet long person that Fiona made for me! AND, she included thre beautiful quilted zippy bags and each was filled with lovely treats. Thank you, Fiona. I've been thoroughly spoiled by your generosity and I am keeping the long person that Fiona made for me in my sewing room on a shelf near my sewing machine to be my muse.
I must get back upstairs and keep cleaning. I have a few more sewing projects that I'll post over the next few days. I really need to put things away as soon as I use them rather than waiting until I have to do a major overhaul of my sewing room. YIKES!
Until next time.
