Happy Valentine's Day

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  I had a lovely visit from my father who lives out of state and made the trip down to Indiana to spend a few days with us.  This morning though, while all three kids were at school, I had a chance to spend a bit of time alone with my dad.  We dropped the little one off at preschool, then went out to breakfast and spent the rest of the morning doing something that we both love.....wandering through antique stores.   We had just enough time afterwards to stop at the bakery for these pretty little cakes before picking the kids back up from school.   Poor Dorrie, she had such a hard time choosing which one she liked best! 

Now that he's gone back home it's time to get back to work sewing!  I'm finishing up a bit more clothing and a custom doll next week, with plans for quite a few RTG dolls following that.  
 I've also been working on a few new clothing patterns for the new year and so far I'm quite happy with the result.  I have a few more ideas floating around that I can't wait to bring to life when I find the time!

Thank you so much for stopping by Millie's Dollhouse!

The Doc is in!

This little doll took me quite some time to finish.  I would start and then stop and then go work on something else for a bit, and then come back to her.  
She was very patient and in the end she turned out just how I was hoping!   

She is inspired by my daughter's favorite character, who is always there to help her friends and offer a kind word or a hug.   She's 15" tall and comes with her two outfits, her doctor's jacket, her medical bag containing her bandages, gauze rolls and stethoscope, and of course her sparkly crochet Mary Jane's and little cotton dottie undies.   

She's perfect for snuggling and playing and can't wait to find her new home!


Doc will be available for sale via an auction in my Hyena Cart shop starting tonight at 8:00pm and ending tomorrow, 2/7 at 10:00pm Eastern time.    You can find the listing for her auction here:  Doc's Auction
