Pumkin Love!!!!

Sewing has been a stress reliever the past few days. Maybe I need stressed out as I made more dolls and such this week than I have in ages! But seriously, this bathroom makeover is dragging on. This morning as I came home from dropping the kids off to school and the house was quiet, I heard a scary sound... drip....drip...drip...drip. I headed into the dining room and the floor was wet so I looked up and saw a row of water drops. Oh no! Oh yes - a pipe from the upstairs had a slow steady leak. To make matters worse, the plumber's van broke down on route to our house and it took 2 hours before he came to fix the pipe. It's all good now though, and thankfully there's no major damage.

The two dolls I showed in my last post were chillin' out in the mild September sun - if you guessed pumpkins you were right!!

Out in the sun drying out was a new prairie stump doll which is for sale on my selling blog.
Here she is all finished...

Close up of her dress and apron... (it is more tea stained than it looks in the pic)

But back to pumkin girl - she's from a Sweetpeas Primitives pattern - all dressed up for a wedding I thought... bouquet of dried Annie... her round head isn't too bad??

So today my two pumkin dolls united in wedded bliss!

A sweet couple dontcha think!!!
(As for the other guy she was on the sun lounger with earlier, I'm afraid she jilted him for the older fella!) He's now having treatment and will be as right as rain very soon. I'll keep you updated!

Thanks for all your suggestions on making rounder heads, I'm going to try them all and see what works best for me.
As for my tooth, it turns out it was a gum infection and is on the mend - thanks so much for your prayers.
And welcome to new followers, you are more than welcome and please leave a comment and I'll get back to you.

Have a great weekend
