Doll fashion week, day 1

Today's model is Samantha, who is sporting her new bathrobe. She is quite pleased with it, as it is warm, and her favorite color.
I made it from the pattern in Joan Hinds book, "Sew the Essential Wardrobe for 18" dolls". It is made with fleece instead of velour, because I only had fleece on hand. I think it probably would be a lot less puffy if I had made it with velour, but I like it pretty well in fleece. See you tomorrow!

The duck days of.... winter?

A couple of weeks ago, we drove by a lake, saw some ducks, and decided to take a few pictures! As we stepped out of the car, we were told that they wouldn't chase us. With that, I turned my camera on, and zoomed in on the ducks. Before I had time to get a good picture, two of the five ducks had gotten up, and began to waddle towards us surprisingly quickly. I managed to get one picture before my companion and I threw ourselves into the car. The picture below is of the ducks, who were waddling after the car.
