The guards carrying Elizabeth Petrovna to the Winter Palace on the night of 25 November 1741
This is my newest project, and most recent foray into doll-making. Boy, I hope it gets easier as I go, because I’ve had a lot of trouble with my first two dolls. In the lower left is the fabric I will be making her dress from, and you can see, I’ve already started adding trim along the one edge. :)
Last month, I had the wonderful good fortune of being able to visit George Washington’s Mount Vernon: http://www.mountvernon.org/
What a wonderful museum! Thanks so much to the staff for making me feel very welcome there, and a special thanks to Tumblr-user foundingfathersfbconvos!
The present day marks 2 years of my blogging activity and I would like to thank you all! This is my first follow forever, so I tried to group all my friends here. Who knows, you might make new friends as well?
