The Sun'll Come Out Tomorrow

We're stll looking for a bit of warmth wherever we can find it here. So today that means making layouts about holidays long past:
I've got some journalling to add along the brown machined stitched lines but it's finished apart from that.


And it means sewing another ragdoll to send to Haiti. I was so glad I'd made a start on him when I saw this Dolly Donations post and spotted that there is a photo of a little girl holding one of my dolls (it's the ninth photo down, she has turned him over and is looking at his back).



And it means a really big thank you to the Paper Turtle herself. Deb for her surprise parcel straight from the sunshine of Arizona. Thanks, Deb! Much appreciated. Your notebooks are beautiful.


Today I'm Loving...Trimming The Sails. My friend Alexa has just started blogging, but you can tell she's got style..

That is SO cool that you got to see a photo of the doll you made being loved! It's such a great cause anyway, and to be able to see your work "in action" is awesome. Hooray for you!

:o) And what a fun surprise to see my handwriting on your blog. So glad you were pleased with the little bundle I sent. xo

What a brilliant idea Dolly Donations is and what a gorgeous dolly you made. Love her little blue shoes!

A new blog to check out - woohoo!
Must have been very heart warming to see your doll being loved all those miles away. This new one looks lovely too.

I love that there's a photo of a little girl with one of your dolls. What a great gift to give a child! I love that you got a little bit of sunshine from Deb too! We could do with sunshine down this way - wet and miserable today! :(

Karen said...

How lovely to see one of your gorgeous little creations on the blog. I love the little shoes you have put on your new dolly.

Amanda said...

How lovely to see that your doll actually made it there and is now making someone happy. Love the little shoes.

Denise said...

I love your layout,and how lovely to actually see that little girl with your dolly. it's nice to see it really did go to someone who will love her :-)

alexa said...

Oh, those shoes are just sooo sweet! Is there a pattern? Scaling up to (small) adult size? How affirming to actually see your lovely doll in a little one's hands ... And thank-you for the lovely mention! Much appreciated!

Such a good idea to brighten up the day with holiday scrapping. The weather here is awful too, been trying to get into the garden but it has rained almost nonstop for a week.....should be getting better from tomorrow though! Fingers crossed for the both of us.
xx
PS. Thank you for the lovely comments you leave on my blog, love that you take the time to do so.

Karen said...

Dark and dreary here, too, but certainly not on your blog. The layout, cute doll, and photos would brighten anyone's day.

Heather said...

A great uplifting post to brighten my dreary evening :)
Love the story of the dolls - such a simple gesture but one that made all the difference to that little girl xx

Ruth said...

How cool to know that one of your dollies is already so very much loved! Yay to happy mail! Oh, and your comments are getting through just fine.

Are you kidding? I am a huge Beatles fan! They are timeless and loved by people of all ages. I wish I could afford to get their remastered box set. Your doll is so lovely! what an awesome charity.

I really like this LO - clean, sharp, bright, and with textured lettering, it really speaks to me! (Also Loooove the rollercoaster paper :-)) x

Winnie said...
