I finally put some dolls in my ebay shop. Lucinda found a home, so she and Boo will be heading to the east coast this Tuesday. I enjoyed making her, as she was a little bit of "coloring outside the lines" for me. Many people at the last doll show said they thought she was creepy, but I liked her a lot. :~) Y'all have seen her before--but here she is again, for the last time.
In other news: I got a new sewing machine!!! My old one died, and rather than take it to the repair shop (the parts are no longer made) we decided to make an investment in the doll business and get a new one. I love it! It has such cool features--all the bells and whistles, enough that I feel a little duncy trying to use to use it. So I've enrolled in a couple of "new owner" classes, to make better use of the investment. More on that progress later.
Also: we're learning to square dance. Well, I am. The hubs had square dancing in school every year as he was growing up, so he's familiar already. (They do that here in AZ, or they did.) We love it! A really warm reception from generous folks willing to teach and share their knowledge (and patience with newbies like me) and just an all around good time. We will try to make regular lessons every week, as no one is allowed to participate in the actual Saturday Night dance until they have "graduated". The full series of classes takes almost a year!
I know my kids will laugh at me, and I must be on the business side of growing older, because I just can't bring myself to care. Ha!
Y'all have a wonderful Valentine's Day (or as we celebrate: Arizona's Birthday).
