peg doll sized trumpet fanfare...)


Here it is!  The cover of my new book!  Yes, the title is Making Peg Dolls & More: toys that spin, fly and bring sweet dreams.

The basic idea behind the book is this:  I wanted to bring peg dolls off the shelf and out of the doll house to spin, fly and travel about in the larger world.   Between the covers of the book there are patterns for dolls to sit on your pincushion & help mind your stitches, dolls flying through the air on dragons and bright winged birds, dolls to accompany children through the day as they face the world and through the night as they dream on their pillows, plus so much more.

Currently, the book is set to release this coming October -- just in time for holiday gift-giving.  I will keep you posted with more details as they are available.


p.s. A special thank you to an elf named Lucy who designed such a pretty cover!
