Little Raggedies without dresses

Aren't they too cute? This is a Gail Wilson pattern for eight inch dolls. I did them yesterday and sometime before the end of the month, I will make their clothes and send them to my nieces for Halloween. I may make them witch hats to make them Halloweenie. I also made some postcards for a swap but I can't show them yet but I can tell you I made a collage/painting and decorated it with stuff I bought at Michael's. Then I photographed it and printed it on to fabric and added some beads and a binding and Viola! a postcard is born.
I listened to "Magical Thinking" by Joan Didion. Very moving and so sad , a memoir about the death of her husband. She is an amazing writer.

I made a set of these (different pattern) years ago. Can't remember who I gave them to, though. I like your pattern better. Your work is lovely.
