Introducing Charlotte and Bunny. Charlotte is a life size toddler mannequin that is made of heavy cloth on a wired armature with stitched hands and feet and can be posed in many positions. My goal was to bring her to life by painting her face and hair, dressing her in a fabulous antique dress, a linen cap, leggings and leather shoes and giving her a name. Here is Charlotte and Bunny along with a picture of her before she came to life.

Today I made an outfit which will be for the Bing doll I have arriving on Tuesday from California. Since both dolls are the same size I thought I should get a head start on the outfit for the boy doll pictured in a previous post. Not bad for first attempt without a pattern. I used some fleece fabric that I had on hand. Mark (my German Swiss husband) informed me that proper lederhosen were made of leather..I told him to go shovel some snow, :)

When I opened my front door this morning (9:00 am) my yard stick measured 20 inches of fresh powdered snow. The problem is that it is still snowing and will continue throughout the day and night and tomorrow morning. I wonder what the total will be by then, perhaps as much as 30 inches?
4 hours later and we have 4 inches more! (12:00 noon)
I found this chart on the local news just now. (5:23- Fairfax has 30") It is still snowing and the latest news say it will be snowing until 5:30 pm tomorrow!
