Today I have some paper doll blocks to show. These are the dolls in purple dresses, which got made last month and then sat around here without hair. Poor chicks were bald for weeks. I finally spent part of a lovely afternoon giving them some hairstyles, which is the most time-consuming part of making the dolls. I think they're grateful, because they looked pretty cold to me.
This month, this doll is my favorite:
A sari! Complete with a bindi on her forehead. I love it! And now that I've redrafted the pattern for a floor-length dress, who knows what else might be coming down the road? Even if we don't have a brown month, I think we can throw a special doll or two in there.
Here are two more dolls:

Gosh, I love that turquoise print dress. That was terrific fabric and it looks great again here.
I tried to get a picture of all the girls just "hanging out" but it turned out pretty washed out.
At least the yard looks good. Here is a picture taken indoors, where they show up a little better:
I think after I make June's dolls I'll have to pull all of them out and take a family picture all together. It would be a good time to count them, too, and think about how I'm planning to lay out the quilt.
Everybody have a good and productive week. I'm planning to make the green dolls, put some binding on a quilt that's been sitting here forever, and finish writing a paper for a conference in June. Yikes! Maybe I better write that paper first!
Linking to Let's Bee Social and WIP Wednesday, plus Scraphappy Saturday. Happy sewing!
