Here's a soft sculptured stuffed
rocking horse that I made to go
with the hand pieced quilt that I
posted about a couple of days ago.
Most of the fabrics are by Heidi Grace.
I used to sell these cute little horses
in a handmade shop on Long Island.
I also used to buy things that I couldn't
Do you have a favorite handmade
item that you just cherished?
She isn't very pretty but there's
something about her that I just love!
She just turned 21 years old.
There were so many talented artists
in that shop and I wish I knew the
woman who made this. Everyone in the
shop was given a number - no names.
She only made a couple and I was happy
when I got to buy this one.
I marveled at her construction - she has
eyelids and eyelashes! Her little nose and
ears are stitched. A lot of work and thought
went into this little doll.
She's not perfect but then that's the charm
of handmade items.
