Prim Annie with Boston....


This little doll is one of the favorite prim dolls that I have made. She is holding a wee little Boston Terrier in her shopping bag (made from a piece of antique quilt). I have had her for about a year and now she is off to Ontario for a Boston Terrier Club of Canada Rescue event - to be auctioned off to a new home in support of Rescue. I name all of the dolls that I make "Annie" because the very first foster dog I had in my home was named Annie... and she was blind.... and she is still alive and doing well in her adoptive home. The pattern that I used for this doll was adapted from a doll I saw in Australian Patchwork and Quilting - I love that magazine!

Love the detail on the doll.

Is there a name for the civil war block on the post before this one? I really like that block!

She is precious! Inspires me to finish the rag doll I had begun (just her body, no dress, face or hair yet!) and get her completed. I'm sure she will be cherished in her new home. And I am partial to Boston Terriers as I had one when I lived at home, Prince.
