This piece is sold, but I have been working on lots of projects. just that some are going faster then others. I have designed a whole new doll body, several heads as well as a ton of doodles for future designs. I just can't keep up with it all flowing into day dreams and night dreams. I guess I am throwing myself at my work... It is throwing me it feels like it some days especially when I can't sleep for days on end.
With that said this Pea is hitting the pillow it is 3:30 am. Good night nurse now I will sleep till 10:30.
May your day be filled with a joyful heart and many smiles.

Hello I would like you to meet America the Beautiful. It is a two piece set. I just love the way this set turned out. She is so very sweet in person. Pictures do not do her justice at all.
America is made from stained osnaburg and measures alone 22 1/2 inches. She features hand painted hazel eyes, separate stitched eye lids and embroidered mouth.
Her dress is made from a wonderful quilt shoppe fabric that I have been saving for just the right piece. I love this fabric. It is a over dyed cream to parchment color with black Americana images. All the hems are done by hand as well as the trims. The trim around her neck and waist are wool felt, I hand scalloped. Around the neck at every scallop I added a rusty bell. Her wings are made from painted, stained muslin and I stitched that same scallop pattern on them as well.
They are pinned on with a rusty pin and remove for easy storage.
America holds close to her heart the American Flag.
It is hand made by me. Traditional fabrics red, white, & blue. A rusty star garland to wire it to her hands. America is placed on a dowel inside which is placed into a wooden base.
The box is made from Paper mache and measures 5 1/2 x5 1/2 x 4. America placed on top of the box measures a overall height of 26 1/2 inches.
The box has been painted black and crackled with cream. I stained the box well for that old feel. It has been sealed well for years of use. It has on two sides, part of America the Beautiful Song.
A pattern by Folk-n-whimsey was used for America with my own touches.
I am offering this set up for sale. here or on PFatt Marketplace page. I am also offering free shipping in the U.S. If you mention that you saw her on my blog I will include a special discount.

Well after much work, um 24 heads folks. Yep, it seems that I was in head He++... I couldn't make a good round head to save my life. I thought I was gonna have to be committed to the old artist's home. LOL
Here she is a full size dolly and not just a head.. I have been making so many shakers lately that I hadn't made a full sized dolly since before Christmas. what is up with that? Don't know but making a doll sure felt good.
Back to Binky. She is just the sweetest of bunnies. She even comes with a old doll cookie cutter. I have her listed on ebay if you would like to take a full size peek and get her story.
Have the best of weeks with many happy memories.
