Lily Fairy Dolly & lovely mail from Brazil



This is one of the most adorable doll patterns I've tested! It's a Lily Marlene Doll from Smooch Design. After I finished hand sewing the dolly, I planted a little kiss on her tiny doll cheeks and named her my Lily Fairy Dolly. Hope she grants me sparkly fairy wishes!

If you want to make your own, check out the tutorial here.



Guess what arrived today? A special Christmas giveaway prize that I won from Thalita's first Christmas giveaway last December! I'm so glad it finally arrived. This lovely print almost got lost in transit. Imagine Thalita's surprise and horror when it actually arrived...on her door! Silly mail glitch got fixed and now this lovely Christmas prize will be framed and displayed by me all year long! Muito obrigada Thalita! Thank you very much Thalita!
