My amazingly creative friend, Margaret Bloom has a book out that you are just going to love, It's called "Making Peg Dolls" and it is the most beautiful craft book that you can possibly imagine.


"You can purchase Making Peg Dolls at Amazon and all other online booksellers" 



Her book is just chock full of wonderful ideas and patterns so that you can create your very own peg doll world. There are peg dolls for every season; flowers, bluebells, Purim and Easter for spring, mermaids and garden sprites for summer, gnomes and owls for Fall, and King Winter, angels and all kinds of glorious things for winter.

I thought that these adorable dolls needed some furniture so I came up with some for little sprites that came to visit my workshop that I will be sending out in my next newsletter.



Have fun together making things!

Best thoughts,

Marilyn.
