Henpecked Ladies are here!

I worked or should I say "re-worked" these ladies and they are now my new pattern design.  I like the newer versions better.  Check them out!  They really make me laugh!

I have several options in this pattern.  There's those simply legs, or the leg with the feet with the funny toes, or the leg with the boots that the taller doll has.  She's got an apron that has the bib front that ties at the neck and the waist in the back.  She's 20" by the way, the other gals are 17".  The crazy chickens are 7" long.

You can make simple needle sculpted mouths or opt for the separate attached lips.
The eyes are pretty basic too.

Noses and brows are all needle sculpted, a rather simple design so don't be skeered! lol
Doesn't this girl seem bewildered by all those chickens?!!

Gotta love her feets tho...........!

I made these girls nice and grungy and stained!

AND, who wouldn't love a whole bunch of these running chickens to boot?

The finished dolls are for sale, $49.00 each + shipping and each doll comes with your choice of one chicken.
Pattern is $10.50 + shipping. 
Just shoot me an email if you want to purchase.

An old design made new....

......I've had ALOT of requests to bring these girls and the chickens back.  Well they never were a pattern but I have decided it's time.  So, right now I am tweaking them and within a few days, they shall emerge. 
They DO have alot of personality.
Keep watching to see the new and improved,
"Henpecked Ladies"

What happened???

Alot.  For those of you asking where I've been, welllllll  where do we start.  The weather has been freaky to say the least.  Our electric was out, TWICE, and our phone service was out several times as well.  One time for DAYYYYYYS.  Oh how we love our electric and phones! LOL
I had a real bad bout with migraines as well, it lasted almost five days. 
Life is beginning to settle down again here.  We've been trying to get our gardens done.  Look what's in the greenhouse, waiting to be planted!
Sweet Annie, tons of it.  I've got about 3 dozen plants in the ground, this crop will be a wee bit later.  I'll have tons for myself as well as for sale at the end of the summer...yay!

Take a close look at this picture, there's something red in there!
I've planted this little patch in one of my flower beds, it's been very fruitful this year (no pun intended!)
So one afternoon, me and my helpers headed out to the farm market for some fresh veggies and peaches!
Aren't these some cute helpers?!
One is a bit of a ham, the other won't usually pose very well for pics!
At the market they had all sorts of "babies" so we checked those out prior to leaving.

We picked berries when we returned.

Between the fresh berries and the fresh peaches, we were able to enjoy THIS after dinner!!

Hope you are enjoying the start of  your summer! 
 I'm spending my week at the sewing machine!
