February Fans & Friends

Another "Fans & Friends" post for February! We just have the most creative and wonderful fans. When they tell me of their projects, I just have to ask for photos, and then, of course, I don't want to keep them to myself! 

Here are some projects and fun things we've been hearing about lately, from YOU! 


Rebecca in Pennsylvania decorated some Gingerbread ornaments in true Tasha-style for Christmas: 

 I think they turned out just fabulous! And, of course, I love the red ribbons.

Sweet Joelle from France ordered some of our A is for Annabelle fabric and stayed up the last few nights before Christmas to help St. Nicholas deliver some beautiful doll clothes to her daughter. 

 Sweet dreams are a sure thing under Annabelle sheets and quilts!

I just adore this frock and the edging!

The sweet bed, all made up in Tasha fabrics.

Yet another darling dress. 
Joelle, I think you need to make matching clothes for your dear little girl next!

Patricia in Argentina sent me a lovely photo of her Tasha-inspired baking day...

Patricia, you'd better put a BIG pot of Corgi Cottage Soup on, because I'm coming over for lunch!

 Joyce sent over her absolutely lovely handmade Tasha Tudor doll (such a wonderful job, Joyce!) enjoying a snow lantern:

Snow lanterns are a Scandinavian tradition Tasha has taken into her fold of Christmas magic. The magic is made by packing snowballs, and crafting an igloo with a small space in the back to insert a candle. Aren't they enchanting?

Elizabeth has written an "All for Love" inspired post on some of Tasha's Valentine's Day traditions on the Rare Book Digest.

Amy wanted me to share my own latest personal project. I wrote an article on modest and budget-friendly fashion (though I must warn you it is modern fashions) for Life:Beautiful magazine Winter 2012. If you're interested in ordering a copy, just call me up at the Rookery, as we'll have a few on hand soon! This is a beautiful magazine filled with "Faith for Your Journey" and I think some of you might find it inspiring.


Please continue to send me your photos of your Tasha-inspired projects. We truly just love to see and share them. We've still got a good bit of winter left to work on projects, so I'll expect to see lots of pictures soon :-) 

Be well and take joy!

  1. That Tasha doll is exquisite. Is the head of wax? Or polymer clay? I like its translucent quality.

    1. Thank you, Hayley, for your nice comment on the Tasha doll I made. Her head, hands, and feet (barefoot of course) :) are made out of Cernit Polymer Clay and that is what gives the translucent look. I enjoy her like Tasha enjoyed her Emma doll. Joyce

  2. What a wonderful likeness of Tasha. I have seen lots of dolls in her honor, but this one has to be the best I've seen.
    Thanks for sharing!
