I still have 2 of the celluloid dolls from the 50's. I would make little dresses for them, out of scraps of fabric and then store them in pretend dresser which were my grandmother's small empty pill boxes!
Today--- I still play with the dolls in a more "grown-up" way by making primitive and prairie dolls, then arranging them on a doll quilt which I made for their doll bed. I love to create vignettes---- as if the dolls would be playing among themselves or having a tea party! I have them displayed inside a pie safe cabinet in my sewing room.
I finished the nine patch quilt yesterday! I used one of Jo Morton's patterns entitled "Cynthia's Quilt"--- from Jo's 19th Century quilt series published in 1998. I'm pleased with the results and have it sandwiched for hand quiltiing. I think "Miss Sudie" will be pleased, don't you?
The doll's in the little red wagon and the one outside the wagon are prairie dolls that I have made.

Hope you are having a great day. Hugs from the doll gang!
