Raggedy Ann learns new skills

While waiting for the next Raggedy & Friends BOM by Kaaren next week, I have been working on an earlier pattern by her.  The Stitching Annie is one of Kaaren's First Friday Freebies. This generous lady publishes a free pattern on every first Friday of the month.


My Raggedy Ann doll had a fun time sitting in a small basket with a quilt and sewing notions, posing for the stitchery  
pattern. The basket I used was too small so it can't be seen at all under the quilt.



Annie had a laugh when I tried to pose her like the other Annie in the stitchery. I think I will use the stitchery for a ring folder where I can keep all my stitchery patterns I'm planning to use. Annie also wanted me to write here her greetings to Auntie Eileen, who made her for me. Eileen has not been blogging for a while, but she noticed my previous post with Andy, and she just might need some pushing to get her back to the blog world.

  4. You always manage to come up with cute posts. Your stitchery is very nice. What kind of embroidery floss do you use?
