Thanks so much Birdie. I really love your work and I think each person should feel acknowledged for their awesomeness. And you are AWESOME!

Yes, She's famous! I mean I haven't personally seen one (likely because I'm in India ...lol), but she's the only cancer doll I've seen on the internet and I wasn't really looking for dolls... I am in a Yahoo Sewing group which is pretty big - almost about 5K members... And they all know Hope. The owner sews for charity. Every time someone posts any doll they comment something that she's not as cute as the chemo-doll/Hope and all.... I remember asking about her once and was pointed to your ProjectHope site. So she's the same doll I'm talking about :P and almost 5000 women I know of know about her...

You're such a brilliant doll maker! Wish you the best

Its such a sweet movement you've started with Hope... I hope it reaches more and more people

Birdie, that was after 20 years in NYC and I forgot that Field Mouse like to come in for the Winter! I think my pattern was McCall's from the 50's.

Three cheers for Birdie and her personal pattern; she's a real gem!!

I am so late replying to your comment on the fabric flowers I made. Thank you so much. You know, I haven't washed those pretties yet ;-0 I'm thinking scotch guard.........because I have them hot glued to a felt circle base. You could sew the petals to the base and wash away. I posted some quick instructions. Let me know if you have any questions. By the way, I am looking forward to seeing your Raggedy Ann dolls;-)

Good Morning, Birdie, thanks for your kind response, I think I'm better at covering shoes than figuring how to use this program. :)

Hey, Birdie! Girl, I've missed you too! We seem to be arriving at SWN at different times. Life has been crazy-busy for me the last few weeks. I took on some additional volunteer responsibilites that are cutting into my computer time :o) I really love your Raggedy Doll. I even thought of a name for you to market them, "Tatter Tots" LOL Happy Sewing!

Aww. Raggedy Ann is so retro! I made my diaper bag out of vintage Raggedy Ann a nd Andy fabric, but I doubt either kid will know who they are :( Post pics when you are done. I'd love to see!

If I do another Valentine Wreath for a gift, I would cut the back sides in halves on the selvage edges...a better use of the piece of fabric. Got this idea making a Valentine Decoration for the Valentine Tree in the Apartment Assembly Room where we do Stay Fit with Amy basically for Apt residents but open to Cottagers also. I've done another one to take Monday; both as "Secret Admirers" from DH & Me.

Thanks,Birdie! I hope you have lots of time to play with appliques; it's a great way to make an inexpensive thing into a special gift. I always keep a few plain linen or cotton kitchen towels on hand so if I need a quick gift and budget is tight, I can add an applique and have a 'personalized' gift. Heatn Bond really makes it quick and painless cause it will keep the applique where you want it and keeps those ravels from happening. I like to take shirts I've had for a couple of years and make them new and different with decorative stitching and appliques. Keeps me from feeling like I don't have anything new to wear (like my closet isn't stuffed already) LOL!

Just thought of one more important thing for applique work - if you don't have one get an applique foot for your machine - you will love it and it makes such a difference - it is clear and you can see your work as you are stitching it. Most brands of machines have these. I can not tell you how many times
I practice before I decide the stitch is right - and this is true for everytime I applique.
have fun
cathy
