How Big is a Puddin Pop Kid??

Well, I delivered 19 Puddins, 3 Peanuts, 2 dresses and a scotty rattle this weekend!! Only 9 Puddins, a few aprons and a couple of dresses to go to finish out the Christmas orders! Things have been busy here! On top of all of the sewing we have tried to make some family time and enjoy the true meaning of the season. We had a wonderful weekend and I will share more on that later.

For now I needed to address something I heard a lot of this weekend... "I didn't know they were that big!" Apparently, my photography skills are lacking and I should have been adding the size to the info on the dolls. The dolls range in size from 19-24 inches. So, they are not little as the picture might make some people think. I don't use a pattern so each doll truly is unique and one of a kind. The size just depends on what I cut out!!

Speaking of cutting out... I had better get to it if I want to finish anytime soon!Below are a few of the babies I delivered this weekend!
Have a great day!

Do you hear that sound??? No, it's not crying. No, it's not Santa's reindeer. It's the sound of my sewing machine buzzzzzzzing away! That baby has been working hard the past few days! Speaking of which- I better get back to it! I'll have pics to share soon!
Oh- BTW- the waiting is over!!! I have green babies to share! (later- gotta get back to work!)

Much love,

I am waiting. I have been waiting for 2 1/2 weeks. Waiting does not make me happy when there is really no reason I should have had to wait in the first place. UGH!

I recently had an order for 2 darling Puddin Pop Kids and the request was for green minky fabric. Unfortunately, I was out so I went to the local unnamed fabric store to purchase some. I then found out that they were also out but was assured they could order it for me and it would arrive in a week. That was 3 weeks ago. I found out on Tuesday night, after I had been over to the store 2 other times to pick up my missing fabric, that the fabric HAD NEVER BEEN ORDERED!!! Better still.. it was SEASONAL and they couldn't have ordered it anyway. Now, why wasn't I told that from the beginning?? Or maybe on my 2nd or 3rd visit to the store to pick up the fabric?? So, tonight I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and to believe that maybe, just maybe the manager didn't know what she was talking about. I drove over there again believing I would find my fabric sitting on the shelf...I.DID.NOT!

So tomorrow, after dance class, with 3 hungry, sleepy children, I will drive to
Mt. Juliet in pursuit of green minky fabric... wish me luck!! Better yet, pray for me!!
BTW-I forgive the local store... I just don't/ won't depend on them anymore.
Thanks for letting me vent and if you are the sweet, patient person waiting for your adorable green Puddin's... hang on! They're coming!!

babies... update

I had a doctor visit yesterday to check up on my little nuggets. Shepherd is doing great! He has flipped head down now but is quite the wiggly little guy! Even though the ultrasound pictures are sometimes hard to see I just think he looks absolutely precious!! When the tech started he and Emery were head to head...must have been sharing secrets at that time. Anyway, once she was ready to scan Emery she was gone! The little stinker had flipped the opposite way and was trying to get away! Poor little Shepherd kept getting kicked in the face!!! She was doing somersaults and flips like crazy! At one point it looked like she was laying on he back and lifting her legs up over her head! She was definitly stretching out!!

They are both so precious.. it still amazes me the capacity to love someone so much that you have never really seen! Hubby and I feel so blessed to be the mommy and daddy of all of our little ones, these 2 included. I can't wait to hold them and see their little faces! Each phase of babyhood on up has been my favorite! isn't that wierd?? I just love it all. Don't get me wrong, a little more sleep and peace would be nice too but watching them develop and seeing those personalities emerge is definitly a blessing.

Unless of course, one unnamed Monkey turns quickly into a possessed, screaming, raging monster that you have absolutely no idea what to do with... I'll save that post for later. I am actually still recovering from that event and may need therapy!!
Happy Thursday to all of you!

Pillow Case Dress

I had a few people ask to see Puddin's pillow case dress for Thanksgiving. It's made of the same fabric as the one I featured before but I put Puddin's name across the bottom instead of her initial. Unfortunatly, this is the best picture I have been able to snap so far! I did find some beautiful fabric to make her and her new baby sister matching dresses for the spring! They are going to be soo cute!! Now, I just have to find something coordinating for the boys! Yes, I am one of those moms!!


Things have been super busy here as with everyone else I'm sure! Anwyay- just a quick post to say what a great Thanksgiving we had with 3 sick little ones! It all worked out though and we ended up having a great day!

Also a quick note to say that I will be closing Christmas orders for all things Puddin Pop on Dec. 15th. So, if you want to order please put your order in before the 15th!! So far, I am running about a week turn around time for those poeple who are local to the 'boro. If you live outside of the boro it takes a little longer due to delivery. this includes dolls, aprons, quilts, rattles and pillow case dresses.
I plan to open orders back up in January but I also have nursery to put together sooo... wish me luck!


enjoying a little popcorn as they watch an all time favorite.... Barney!
