FOCD swap

I recently participated in a rag doll swap in my Friends of Cloth Dolls group. This was my first doll swap and I couldn't be happier with the doll I received from my partner, Jeanne Hughes, in Colorado. We kept in contact throughout the process and I've made a wonderful new friend. Jeanne and I decided to use Kezi Matthews' patterns to make our dolls. This is the doll I received from Jeanne. She was made from Kezi's "Dilly" pattern and her name is Amy. She traveled across the country with her little chick to live at my house. The doll in red is "Hoedown Hannah." I made her from Kezi's "Millicent" pattern and dressed her in a patchwork jumper and straw hat. She now resides in Colorado with Jeanne. This swap was so much fun! I can't wait to do another one.

  3. These dolls are so sweet. You both did great jobs. I haven't done like this in a very long time. I wish I had the time to be part of that swap.

  4. HI there "New Best Friend" thank you for being so helpful at QSC; I am so turned on to dolls now. I will be checking all the websites you mentioned. Hopefully, one day I will produce a doll half as nice as yours!

    I have watched all old (Super 8) film of TInk the black lady I modeled my doll on and am off to shop (on line) for glasses etc...and I must turn her do rag around...she wore it the other way and so I guess I will need hair. I can see this is going to be another money sucking passion for me! Thanks again.
