OH MY GOSH! Look what I got

OH MY GOSH! I just received my swap package from Cindy at Thimbleprims Studio today and I just stood there when I opened it saying OH MY GOSH, OH MY GOSH!

She sponsored a Raggedy Ann swap and since I love Raggedies, I was only too eager to enter this swap. And I was lucky enough to get her as my partner. We had talked about the kind of dolls we both wanted and I told her that I would love to have a small prim Raggedy in brown and blue to put in my newly decorated living room. And oh my gosh! This doll is perfect! I just picked her up and hugged her when I got her out of the box. Just look at that adorable little face and the little teddy bears and toys on her dress. And her hair is georgeous! You can't see it, but she has put a little bow in her hair to match her dress.
She also sent me some neat green fabric with candy corn and some flannel fabric with fall pumpkins, squash, squirrels and acorns on it. It is so cute. Then there was Raggedy Ann note pad, a Raggedy postcard, address book, the sweetest Raggedy card and two patterns. I don't know why they don't sell Raggedy Ann merchandise in this area but they just don't. For some reason the north has all the great prim craft shops, prim fabrics and Raggedy products. I am so thankful for all the prim sisters that I have that share this merchandise with me.
THANK YOU SO MUCH Cindy!!! I absolutely LOVE everything.
I am just so ashamed that mine wasn't ready to put in the mail at the same time she mailed hers. My unexpected vacation, that I really needed, has put me so far behind. But yours is in the mail tomorrow Cindy. I just hope you like yours half as much as I love mine.
Here's the pics. Just look at how the fabric matches chocolate and blue! Until next time...

Well I can sure understand why you are so excited about your Raggedy...she is just perfect, Valerie! I'm so happy for you that you got just the doll you wanted, what a beautiful swap!

Valerie,
I am overjoyed that you love your new little raggedy girl. I had so much fun making her for you. I love those. I used a pattern by BowlsnAnnies and I love the way it turned out. I know she is happy in her new home with her new momma. : )
I'm happy that you like your "extras", too. Extras are so much fun! Actually, this online place www.raggedyland.com has a lot of great Raggedy Ann merchandise but they are kind of steep, pricewise. I have a lot of trouble finding good raggedy things, too, even online, especially good notecards. I'm pretty determined though. : )
Please don't worry about not sending mine yet. Although I can't wait to see her! I know I am going to love her so, so much.
Have a great weekend, my friend,
Big hugs from,
Cindy
