Dearest Peg Doll Swap Participants, I want to thank all 21 of you for joining in the fun -- And I offer a special thank you to those who have made photos available so we can all have a peek at your delightful dolls! 

The dolls from this swap have been so innovative that I am excited be able to share them here on my blog.  In today's post we have the first batch of butterflies & blooms (you can see my own contribution in the photo above.)  Please come back tomorrow for a look at wee folk and magical critters.

Stephanie of Knitty Gritty Homestead (Ontario, Canada) left me feeling a bit swoony over these tiny (remarkably eency weency) luna moth wings...

And these monarch butterfly wings which Stephanie created are perfect in every detail.

And she also created a pair of delicate snowdrops (I am lucky to have this pair sitting on my mantlepiece... they are so very pretty!)

dolls by Painting Pixie

The very talented Painting Pixie (Colorado, USA) stitched these exquisite pixies for the swap.  The perfection & intricacy of her cherry blossom embroidery is a bit mind-boggling...

And here we have Flora & Blossom, created by Marcy of the blog A Simple Life (NY, USA.) Their inspiring headgear is bold, stylish and perfect for spring, is it not?

Kenda (MO, USA) stitched up these pretty flower fairies based on patterns from Wee Folk Art.  The colors Kenda chose are so cheerful and her embroidery adds a nice touch.
