Anatomy of a Full Moon Baby

Here at Moonchild Studio I make 2 different types of natural dolls.  There is the traditional style doll with the fairly straight legs and arms and then there is the dear baby with gently curved arms and legs.

For the Full Moon Baby to be more 'baby like', I make the legs bend back a bit and the arms curve in a bit.   A cap of brushed mohair, a sweet button nose and a little thumb to suck make Full Moon Babies just that much cuter.  Cuddle one and see for yourself.

A fresh Start

I spent last week in the hospital. Aside from having babies, I had, up until this point in my life, just been visiting when I stepped foot in a hospital.

I came home last Friday and I am on the mend. I was diagnosed with Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis and it is being chased away with oxygen and medication.

On a lighter note, my #1 daughter, Amber, spent a big chunk of Wednesday organizing my fabrics. I don't have a proper 'fabric hoarders' stash. I take great efforts to only purchase what I will likely use in the near future. I have wovens, knits, velour, doll skin and wool felt.
                                           The Shelves
                                           mostly flannel and knits

                                           mostly wovens

                                           I really like red and white polka dots

                                           Pink fabric makes me quite happy too

                                           100% wool felt

                                           Cotton Velour

                                           Shades of doll skin fabric

So I get very inspired when my fabrics are organized. Amber will be my assistant on Wednesdays for now and, with her help, I will be able to be more on top of thing in my sewing studio.
