About Me

Riley's Room

My first Kish doll was a Riley, and I still have her.  Since then, Tulah, Zsu Zse, Avery, Jada, and DJ have joined the collection, and also model for me.  The first outfit I made for Riley was the "Garden" jumper, which has all kinds of flowers embroidered on it, as well as bees and dragonflies with gossamer wings.  I've got so many ideas in my head for these dolls, I don't know if I'll ever get them all made!!


I called this Alpine Adventures

Under the sweater is an embroidered jumper and coordinating shirt.

I think I called this Rosebuds for Riley. My husband made the furniture.

Bright and blue...and perhaps a little long.

I love this hat, though. My own dress pattern.

This embroidery was inspired by a sweater I saw.

The entire ensemble included two different jumpers.

This ensemble was called Holiday Harmony.
