Welcome to our Team Blog! Marie Antoinette & Edie Marie have joined together to create a fun place to share our ideas and lives with all of you. We know that our teaming up has been confusing for some of you and we apologize. We will refer to ourselves as Marie Antoinette (the Doll Creator & maker of fabulous items) who lives in Peacock Paradise and Edie Marie (the creator of the posts and story telling on this blog & amateur crafter of many things in my "attic") who lives on Golden Pond. What great fun we have combining our forces!!

Thank you for stopping by to see what's happening in our studios in Peacock Paradise and on Golden Pond!

My oldest Sweetie Girl 
wanted to learn to sew. 
She wanted to make her 
doll, "Sunday", a new dress. 

This was a sewing grandmother's 
dream come true!! 

So we looked through my 
stash of fabrics and chose a 
navy blue with scattered white 
polk-a-dots. We found a perfect 
little piece of trim that was a 
strip of net rosettes. 

We made a paper pattern 
that we could reuse to make 
more dresses. She thought it 
a great idea! 

 Of course the first step of 
learning to sew is mastering 
how to sew by hand. 

She did a great job!! 

Sweetie Girl was so pleased 
with her creation! 

Sunday loves her new frock! 

Grandma, Sweetie Girl, and Sunday 
had a wonderful time together 
sewing and chatting and learning. 

What are you working on? 

We'd love to hear about your 
latest project! 

Love & blessings, 
Edie Marie
