"In The Garden"

Are you ready for spring?  I am!!!

Here's my latest doll, already working in her garden.  What will she see as the season comes on?

She'll start with seeds and find a few small stones as she turns the earth over.  She'll see a bright green stem reaching for the sun and later on tiny buds.  Finally, at her feet she'll see flowers. 

She'll literally be surrounded, front and back with all things growing.

"The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul". -- Alfred Austin


  1. I hope she gets just the right amount of rain for her garden.

  2. Oh Dolores -- rain will NOT be a problem. We had 6"-8" on Sunday and right now its raining and 'they' say we'll get another 4" - 6"!

  3. She's sure gettin' that rain today!!! LOL

    Penny, she is magnificent!!! I want her!!!

  4. Oh, what a beauty! I think she has the shape and movement of perhaps carrying something in her arms as she makes her way to the garden. I love the peaceful earth tones, and as always, am in awe of your plentiful(!) stitching. She's wonderful!

  5. She is so lovely! Beautiful colors and exquisite stitching!

  6. She's gorgeous! A pure garden nympf.
    I have never seen the Austin quote but its exactly how I feel. I just can't wait to get outside. I am re-landscaping the frog pond area this year. I hope the weather cooperates.

  7. And what a beautiful gardener she is too. Just love her!

  8. How lovely, just fantastic, im at a loss for words

  9. OH! She takes my breath away!!!

  10. I love all of the tiny, hand wrought details on this doll! She is incredible. I love the colors you used too. Absolutely divine!
