just popping in to say i love your quote, i'm reading my daughter to sleep this week with chapters from Mary Poppins ... i'm so glad she's finally old enough to at least sit still for it, if not actually understand what's going on. (she's 3.) and thanks for stopping by my blo!


err, that should be blog. ;)


The blog IS a lot of work! I didn't intend to bow out of Show and Tell this week but I was nattily dressed yesterday but today I am cleaning up the garden and can't be bothered to change.
I do like your stand-in models.


I LOVE the wellies with the polka-dot dress, and wish *I* could carry it off. The Jackie O hairdo cracks me up, too.

I still have all my Barbies, including two big containers of their clothes circa 1975-1985. I may have to write a post about it, complete with pics, now : )


I would definitely wear outfits 1 & 3 (without the gumboots). Great idea!
Yes, I know what you mean about blogging. My children are screetching for my attention as I'm typing this.


I grew up an only child with Barbie as my best friend. I continued to play with my dolls ntil I was a teen. Later, I dreamed of a daughter who would love Barbie, and we would share hours of joy together. What I was blessed with was a girl that did not play with dolls.

The socks are lovely!


Hedra is beautiful! How do you normally block socks?
Ack! The Turning Twenty quilt just made me want to throw eveything else to the wind and start piecing together fabric. I keep saying the same thing...no attempts at quilting until I get more of my current projects done and yet...somehow the Denise Schmidt book has appeared on my bookshelf, a rotary cutter and mat moved into my craft supplies, and there is fabric making its way to me on a ups truck. Huh.


That sock is gorgeous - will you be wearing it with black lacy stockings and high-heels? I found that picture from knitty really intriguing.
I know what you mean about having to limit yourself with the blogging. There are so many interesting things out there it's hard to stop, suddenly hours have gone by. Some days I just won't allow myself to get on the computer at all.
