They're finished!!

I had hoped to have these girlies finished yesterday. It seems I got a little caught up in the details of their clothing. I tend to do that...get lost in the details.

You'd be amazed at how much effort goes into getting that old, stained look. Everything gets stained with walnut ink and then baked. Yes, baked in the oven at 170 degrees (Farenheit) (the lowest my oven will go).

Little Miss Spunk over there is all ready for a baking session. She doesn't seem like the type you'd want to have too much sugar, though. I haven't decided whether she will be sold or if she needs to live here with me.

The other Annie is for a trade. The little doll quilt I made a bit ago is hers. I'm really pleased with how she turned out. Her dress has been stencilled...a heart on her chest (which really is nice...I should have paid attention to that fold of fabric that is making it look misshapen) and stars at her hemline.

The details are what make them so special! I love them both- so sweet and cheerful. Just the kind of face you want to have around when the weather gets yucky! (I posted my EFA dolls on the blog for you to look at. Gotta get ready for our sewing party!)
