All My Children -- Mother's Day 2012

What a great year it has been so far!  I have been celebrated by my three grown children on Mother's Day with wonderful phone visits and all good and happy news for each of them.  My own mom is now 86 years old, happy, healthy and chats with me on almost a daily visit.

Still find myself somewhat tired, though.  And then I realized that I have been busy, not in turning 65, but in giving birth (of sorts) to many delightful little cloth creatures.  We had a little reunion here and a "family" portrait of just a few of the little ones I have made since the beginning of this year (and a little spilled over into the tailend of 2011). 

Here's the gang .... 

2012 Doll Family
Originals and prototypes (Nov 2011-May 2012)

There are 30 dolls in the photo (must apologize for the poor photo quality ... am working on adjusting this).  There are 6 very tiny mini dolls in the front row.  Several of the Christmas & Halloween darlings were not able to attend because of other commitments. 
I love being a mom in more ways than one!!


  1. What a great group of kids.

  2. I love being surrounded by this gang every day!! Thank you Cathy!
