Just wanted to share a new Annie Doll, I call her Valentine Annie. She is holding a heart made from an old quilt w/ a pocket full of Sweet Annie. I am offering a few of her finished, if you are interested just click on the link on the side bar button. The pattern will be available soon, hopefully this weekend.
Now, about the strangest phone call I have ever received, came today. On my You are Special line, a lady called and asked what I did, I said I did craft patterns, after having to answer the same question 3 times, she finally said, I thought maybe it was a mental health place. Then of all things she asked if I could design a woman's vagina and a man's particular body part, I said WHAT. She said she knew it was strange request, I said I don't make items like that, she wanted to know if I knew of anyone who did. I just told her search the interet. I have to say, that is the most ridiculous request I have ever had. I guess it is one of things, I will remember forever. I know when I first got my business name You are Special, my husband picked it out, then wouldn't answer my business phone. Because when he would say You are Special ,they would say thank you. He was embarrassed to tell women they were special and he is the one that had to have that name for my business. I wanted something with Country in it and he didn't. Then I had inmates calling that line collect from our local prison, thinking I was some kind of love line. I had to stop putting my ad in the Yellow pages and that finally solved that problem. At least with The Olde Country Cupboard, I shouldn't have that problem.
Well, just wanted to share this doll with you all and I am working on some more doll patterns and even have some thoughts of Christmas patterns. It is never too early.
