31" Annie with heart & sweet annie and gingerbread basket

the colors in this picture are more accurate to her real colors

Annie is made from coffee/vanilla stained muslin with a stitched face.  Her yarn hair is sewn on.  She is wearing a homespun dress and bow...stained muslin bloomers.  I've sewn her hands together and she is holding a wonderful prim heart.  I made the heart from osnaburg, painted it and added cinnamon.  There's a stained bow around it with some sweet Annie.   She measures a large 31".  Annie is great on an antique pie safe as pictured with Derrek's great, great grandmother's pie safe above or just sitting on a shelf, chair, etc.

Patchwork is about 22" tall.  She's been made from coffee/vanilla stained muslin.  I've sewn on yarn hair.  Her face is stitched with button eyes and a wool felt nose.  Her boots are painted and sanded then lace was added to the top.  Her bloomers are made from the blue floral on the bodice of her dress.  I've added one of my handmade tags to her dress with Annie on it.

SNOW day

Here's what we woke up to this morning...more snow than we've ever had here.  We've had more snow in the past two years than all of the other years in our 20 years being married.  It is beautiful today but the sleet is coming behind it so it won't last long I'm afraid.  I hate sleet and freezing rain and am hoping we won't lose power from it.  So if you email and don't hear back from me any time over the next few days it may be from that.  Keeping everything crossed though that it won't get icy.
