And then there were TEN.

I little recap first on my life.  We've been busy trying to get our gardens in line, our shop in line and well, I've just plain old had the migraines again.
BUT, I'm feeling better now, thank the Lord!

So I started working on these dolls.  Originally they were going to be just 3 dolls in 3 sizes and I was going to offer the finished dolls for sale.  Then I added a 4th.......and a 5th.  So then I thought, well let's make 8 and offer it as a pattern and call it Eight is Enough.  But then I wanted a tiny one for the end of the row.    That little doll is only 4" tall!!!
But, that made it an odd amount.  So I made a larger one and it became 10.  I considered 2 more to make it a dozen but ran out of hair.....and patience!
  So they are what they are!
This is just a sneak peek, they are awaiting their dresses which I am working on and then a couple other things to make it interesting and then they will be my newest pattern.  Which I did not plan on as I am currently trying to do up fall patterns.....alas, my mind does wander a bit.........!
So, enjoy this photo, comments are appreciated as I do like to know what you all think! 
Enjoy your day, ours is warm but breezy, actually very nice!

Maureen, what a sweet, sweet pattern! I can't wait to see it all dressed up. I would have to say my favorite would be the 4" doll...I love doing more dolls on the small size rather than the bigger dolls. I am happy that your migraines are getting better, I get them too so I know they are not fun. I have Lupus so when I get a migraine it tends to make everything else go haywire and I can't seem to accomplish anything. You have a lot more energy that me lately because I get too tired it seems just getting everything ready to sew! LOL! Have a great week. Michelle

They are all very sweet as usual Maureen. You are so talented! Glad your feeling better. I get the blurry vision kinds of migraines~ guess I'm lucky I don't get the painful headache so many suffer with.
Looking forward to the finished photo shoot~

Have a great rest of the day!
