    I would love to see patterns for the bulbs and flowers you sewed. Do you have them?

  2. I have asked you several times how else I could send you photos of the patters I’ve bought from U, since they could not be included here. You have never replied.

    • Hello Velia! Sorry to hear about this but Ann has always mentioned that you can email her your pics and she’s very present on Instagram. You can tag her there and she always shares on her stories. They’re a delight to see!

  3. Love your patterns and I have made several tiny rag dolls, but I haven’t got one of my own, I think I must rectify that! I do have a version of Mr Socks, though he is called Mr Fandango as he his a master of South American dances!

    Happy 16th Birthday! Thanks for sharing my doll camp, what a sweet surprise this morning. And what a fun project that was. Did you know that Victorian salt clay will stay good in the refrigerator for months. I think I made it 7 months ago. It’s still soft and pliable and isn’t moldy. Astonishing

    I’m not on social media, so I can’t post a photo, but I used the moon and some of the stars from your mobile as appliques on a night sky quilt I made for a new great-nephew.
    Random strips of dark blue fabric pieced together, interspersed with star quotes from a purchased panel and the appliques.
    They made the quilt, in my opinion.
    Thank you!
