I see Paris…

I see France…I see someone’s underpants…bloomers!

I know it is silly, but that is what I thought of when I took the photo.

I wanted to show this dolls cute bloomers.

I need to add her hair and then she will be done.

I like the way this one turned out.

She is tiny.

After spending several days stitching dolls I have decided that my favorite ones are

still the little Black folk art dolls.

I enjoy embroidering the faces and I like the contrasting colors.

I have stitched five dolls total and at some point I will share the others.

I am ready to get back to hand stitching some post cards and quilt pieces.

Enough “side trips” for now.

    So funny. I learned that rhyme this way: I see London, I see France, I see someones underpants. I guess it depends on where one grows up. But no matter the version, I know what you mean. rhymes like that will stay in the head forever, long past the time I can remember my own soc. sec. number, I am sure.

    I am sure the rhyme goes that way but, for some reason the way I wrote it is the way I remember it.
    Glad you know what I meant.

  3. rhymes:
    My favorite, to quote to my children of course….
    If horses were wishes beggars would ride.
    If turnips were watches I would wear one by my side,
    If “something” were pots and pans there would be not need for tinker men.

  4. Wow I didn’t know youtube would post it like that….cool.
    I really like the eyes of your first doll…they all look so happy and content.

      It is pretty amazing…I learned something new about youtube.
      Which doll, the tiny one? or bigger one?
      One is painted and one is embroidered.
      Anyway, I like the little happy looking embroidered one too.
      That is the feeling I want to convey.
      : )
      Thank you.
