Flowers are blooming, birds are singing and the lawn needs mowing, badly. I am charging the dead battery of my riding mower so I can hopefully do that chore later on today! I have been sewing a smidgen but not much. This dress is the prize for a contest on Our Little Darlings, but sadly, there are almost no entries!

Four years has passed fast. My bright, beautiful, imaginative girl is turning four in a week. She asked me for a doll to be friends with the rag doll that I had made when I was a teenager that she plays with all the time. That particular doll is named Lizzy and I had given it to my mother after I made it. She saved it all these years and when I had Olivia, gave it back. I scrounged the internet for the pattern and successfully found it and made a friend for Lizzy. This doll is unnamed. I'll leave that honor to Olivia. I hope she will enjoy her. Olivia loves to imagine scenarios with her dolls and has a running dialogue with them most of the time!
