    Cloth head is not a requirement. You could use any doll head in scale to the body. Any idea what size the bodies were? Would they fit the 9 - 12 inch size we've been talking about?

    I've got a couple more invites out in cyberspace. I was hoping to twist Smidgen's arm so she would join. (hint, hint of you're out there Smidgen). No pressure though! If anyone can think of someone who might be interested let me know. I'd really like to be on time with the first mail out.

    I did find my inspiration fabric yesterday! I'm excited to get started!

    NIK, I imagine you looked at names on your signup list for the Dotee dolls. What about those who signed up for the fabric brooches? Iím not sure whether you hosted that one, but what youíre interested in is just the names anyway. All we need is a couple more, but I do respect the valid hesitation of people who want to be sure about their commitment. So much better than someone who might sign up with lots of excitement and little thought, and then be irresponsible later. (I myself am incredibly excited about this project and canít wait to get started - but then I often get teased about my passionate M.O. when it comes to any new interest!)

    Yes, I've looked at lists from other swaps. That's where I recruited ya'll!!! I really am looking for 2 more people as excited and committed as the 4 of us are.
    This is my first rotation swap and I want it to be successful. It is a big commitment but the payoff will be amazing!

    Her name will be Princess Filigree, and her body made up of a patchwork of light colored filigree patterns. I've always loved those swirls and curleques, so of course she does too. That's about it as for the information I will put in the little journal (maybe a couple more "facts") because I don't want to be too limiting, just stir some imaginations. Wow, I feel like a little girl again, a little embarrassing at my age! But fun!

    Smidgen, I used to collect bears by teddy bear artists as well as dolls by doll artists. It can be very similar, I'm sure you would have no problem. And a big head with a little body can look very cute!

    I'd like to play! I'm overseas, is that an issue? I'm hesitating between something post apocalyptic and punky for her, or something cuter... my needles are ready. Is a handmade journal ok? I can adjust the size when everyone's agreed.

    edit: Oh, nevermind, USA only :/

    Well... I haven't picked a name yet...I have been inspired by Deer Rose Pilgerfahrt(German fairy tale). Pilgrimage of the rose...the journey of a rose who is transformed into a human by the fairy queen.

    You are all so sweet, but with school and many other responsibilities just starting I don’t think I can manage this too. I will be checking in and drooling for sure!
