The Doll Has a Name!

As several of you know, I have been deliberating waaaaaay too much about naming my Hankie Couture doll.  I really enjoyed the suggestions, even the silly ones.  This is, after all, a light-hearted matter.  

I finally narrowed it down to three, although I was leaning toward a particular name.  I asked DH to pick his favorite of the three and he picked the same one, so it was a done deal.  
Without further ado,  meet
LAUREL 
suggested by Maureen F. in Maryland
The runner-up names were
Sofia (Sophia) 
suggested by Angels Watching Over Me
and
Ava
suggested by Heather A.


Now this is where it gets a bit complicated.  Maureen F. did not want hankies, but did want to play. So I have decided to throw in a couple more hankies to the pile and split them between Angels Watching Over Me and Heather A.  Congratulations, ladies! Please contact me privately with your mailing information.

Thank you all so much for playing along! I love hearing from you, and I hope this was something a bit different and fun for you.

Currently I am working on a crazy quilted purse, which will be entered into the Crazy Quilting International Annual Purse Contest if I can finish it in time (I have one more week).  Regardless, I should be able to reveal it by the end of the month.  I also have a private commission to sew an apron for someone this month, plus a lot of catching up to do on the round robins I’m stitching in.  I’ve been making progress, but don’t have anything to post yet.

And finally, I usually stock some handmade items in the Wheeler Farm Country Store on a consignment basis.  But everything is on hold now, because there is some question by our new management about whether Salt Lake County ever officially approved the consignment form. Since I am the one who drafted it (and ran it by the County Attorney), I am trying to help clear the situation up. Luckily, I still have the emails from the County Attorney’s office that gave the approvals, so I am hoping that by next week we will be “back in business”.  If that’s the case, then I have more girls’ aprons to sew and stuffed cows to dress, LOL!!   :-)

Laurel is a very appropriate choice. Since my daughter is Laurie, I think it has a lilting appeal.

Well, as they say, you play you pay. After your extended CT trip, its back to work for you.

Have a wonderful Mothers Day.

Thanks for letting me play!!!
I am glad to meet Laurel and can't wait to see her first real Hankie Couture outfit! I love her look now but she needs a little more style ; ))
Good luck with all you have to do and have a wonderful Mother's Day.

Maureen, Congratulations on having your name picked and thank you for giving up the prize. Because you did this I will share the hankies with Ava. Thank you Kathy for choosing Sofia as a runner-up name.

Well, I'll be! I'm absolutely TICKLED to share a shipment of hankies with Angels Watching Over Me! Great name, by the way! Both Angels Watching Over Me and Laurel.

I have a dear friend named Laurel and I can assure you that she is most deserving of sharing a name with a beautiful doll.
