Remember These Two?

Remember these two? My 'naked' little poppet dolls stitched together that seemingly long ago October day...sitting in the sunny yard with my little dogs 'keeping guard'.
Yesterday afternoon...on another glorious,sunny,warm fall day--albeit unexpected in November--I sat in the yard and finally gave these two lovelies some clothes. Hand sewn skirts from coffee,vanilla and cinnamon dyed fabric accented with bits of vintage lace and antique mother-of-pearl buttons.

The poppet on the right has been claimed by my sister already.
They look so pretty in the setting sunlight...and also in my red chair...
Hooray for unexpected lovely November weather and another opportunity to sit outside and sew and eat apples and watch geese fly overhead and listen to the peep of chickadees and nuthatches. I even saw a last robin of the season! Truly something to be thankful for: this wonderful day...
