It's a good day, sunshine and 60 degrees!

Wow, the snow is melting and it's a sunny day in my not-so snowglobe-ish world! Can this mean spring is finally coming to the land that time forgot? Please??
Rachel's been home with the flu, so I've not had much time to sew, but I have been doing some beading on a few more pin dolls.
First pic is of clay face pins...second is of one I just am finishing using artgirlz charms, and third is funky fun with artgirls charms and wool cones (one for me and one for a friend) :

And, I've joined the "Dotee Doll" swap over at Doll Street, so those are next on my list of things to do. I love Dotees, they're sew sweet...like a mini version of the comfort dolls, but just the perfect size to make a bunch to trade with! Don't know what a Dotee is? Want to see one? Do a Google image search on "Dotee" and you'll see more ideas than you ever thought possible. Need a pattern and a tute to get you started?

One more pic to share for today...I needed something to carry my cell phone in...I was tired of tracking it down every time it rang! I had a piece of crazy quilted Laurel Burch fabrics left from a jacket I'd made, sew this is what I came up with:

Okay, off I go to sew, sew, sew...
Have a great day my friends,

Love your dolls. I've never made an art doll but I also joined the swap. I've made 3 Dotee's and they are turning into more art than Dotee. The little cell phone bag is great. I need to do something like that. I am constantly losing my phone in my purse. By the time I find it the caller hangs up. LOL
