Deanne came by this morning and picked up a doll for Sophie. Thanks SO much you guys. This afternoon I was on cloud 9, feeling so happy about the morning events and decided to go to the local "it" store in town to stock up on fabric for my weekly sewing nights. I grabbed the 6 dolls I have made over the last week to take with me. Robin, the woman that works cutting fabric in the store has talked to me on and off about seeing the finished dolls and showing them to the owner. I thought it was a good day to give it a try. If I couldn't meet with the owner, at least I knew Robin would make me feel good about what I had stitched together and give me some "old owl" advice. Robin was SO excited about the dolls and called every creeping, crawling women who works in the store to come over and see them. I COULDN'T HAVE HAD A BETTER TIME!!! After the doting, squeezing, gasping, chatting, and gathering, two of the women bought dolls on the spot, and one of those woman called her son who works as a product manager at a well-known toy store to schedule a time for him to meet her purchased doll! Another woman is having me make 2 custom dolls to look like her girls and actually sent me home with a picture of her children! I was spinning like a top! I left so happy, but ironically not even knowing if I met the owner OR if they want a few dolls for the store. Anyways, here are the dolls I sold today, only leaving three lonely girls in the shop. Hopefully I will be adding some more dolls very soon!
