It's been so busy around here lately that I haven't had time to do proper thank-yous or proper introductions, so without further ado, big thanks go to Carrie, Memeeps on Flickr for the wonderful goodies from the Blythe in America swap, co hosted by LucysPostcardQuilts and myself.
Carrie was a thorough swapper and perused my pics and blogs to suss out that I had three Blythes, and she sewed them all darling matching pink and white dresses (shown above). She was aghast, although she needn't be, when she saw my latest Flickr pics and realized I had quickly acquired two more, a Mondrian and a V-Smash. She even apologized for not sending them Valentine gifts also, which is crazy. She had already gone above and beyond the call of Blythe swapping duty! We love all our gifts, and the girls can certainly learn to share!
So, although Mondie/Tuesday has been pictured here before, today is the official posting of the first pics of Jolene, a fiery redheaded V-Smash. I love her combo of red-orange hair and red-orange eyes, although of course like other Blythes, she has options! I am too chicken to do an eye chip change or they'd all have options. Only Violet, who came with custom violet chips, has anything non-stock about the eyes.
The girls are also posing above with some of the crocheted hats I've made with the pattern from Zoe Aarden's new book, Grrlie Designs, 22 Unique Crochet Patterns for Blythe, which I edited, and which is available on ebay, etsy and Blurb, or link below in my 1/31/08 post. You just gotta get it!
