She's Here!

I'd like to introduce you to Violet Ann.

I decided to name her after my mom,
who was an amazing seamstress and artist.

I have wanted a dress form forever!

This is my Merry Christmas to me....
from me!

The gifts we give ourselves are often the sweetest and most loved.
I can't wait to see how you doll her up....and I am guessing she is in your sewing room, right?

I'm delighted for you!!

That is so strange I dreamed I got one last night!! I have never really thought about having one and was thinking the dream was funny but maybe I was just in tune with you!! ENjoy her!!
