~I am a creative messymaker, dollmaker, sometimes instructor and pattern designer *Bringing Imagination to Life in Fabric*~

Welcome and thank you for visiting! Here you will find links to my one of a kind or limited edition finished dolls, handmade by me, one at a time, from my own designs. Many of my finished dolls are entirely hand stitched. I also plan to do a line of what I call Adapted Beyond Recognition which will be things made from patterns by other designers. And did I mention maybe some hand stitching or paper mache added to the mix? My *Instant Download* ePatterns are available in my SHOP link above which will take you to ETSY. Currently my time is limited, but creating is healing and good for the soul so I need to find my quiet time for gentle stitching. New designs are on the worktable. Please check back you never know what will spark my imagination next! ~Edna~

Lemons to Lemonade


For thirty five years my life was on cruise control.  In an instant a heart stopped beating and changed my life.  Life was good but looking back, it could have been so much better.  All work and not much play is not a good thing. If you have someone in your life to share a sunset, take a walk, spend some quiet time with, don't take them for granted. Make an effort to turn those every day moments into something special.  

I am blessed and thankful to have someone in my life that challenges me, encourages me, inspires me to face my fears, eat healthy, stay active, positive, young minded and reminds me that I am stronger than I think I am.  We all are much stronger than we think we are, we just need to find out for ourselves.

Life is short.  Take some time to add some gentle tender sweetness to the mix and make lemonade out of those average day lemons.
