Introducing MAY Paper Ladies and Patterns available soon for 1/2 doll, sneak peak.

There is no mistaken, these colours for MAY Paper Ladies are my colours...
RED, BLACK, White a touch of GREEN too..

She is absolutely my FAV to date. She is ME to a T. 

This pattern requires ONLY 6 PRESENCIA FLOSS,
we also included conversion page, so you can match
with another popular floss..

I just happen to love PRESENCIA, 
In fact, this pattern was the easiest to colour with floss...
Each step is included...
And if red, black, white and touch a green
is not your colour...just follow my colours
and substitute yours...
( 2 variegated) 
how to blush her cheeks, make her flowers...

If you are leaning towards Embroidery, Applique or Colouring with Floss
and Cross Stitching this pattern will have everything in it....

We include many coloured photos too...

At the end of the year I will be showing you what I have done
with all of my Paper Ladies...
Cori will be doing the same.....
Showing you what to do with them all.! 

Or Maybe you will be just making one for your BIRTHDAY MONTH...

A OOAK ( one of a kind) PIN DOLL CUSHION>..

I am working on yet another 1/2 lady today...
Busy ruffling.....ohhhhhhhh and is she a beauty...


  1. Oh my goodness... you ladies are doing just a fantastic job designing these Painted Ladies. I'm looking forward to the pattern for the pin cushions!

  2. May is beautiful .
    I had a dress just like this when I was 16 , brings back some good times for me when I use to go dancing with friends.

  3. I can't wait to make one (or more) of these. They remind me of the bed dolls my mom made when I was little. These half ladies are so pretty. I'm not good with ruffles though. I think I'm going to have to get a ruffle foot for my sewing machine. (You've been slowly winning me over on ruffles.) lol

  4. Samm, your lady is just beautiful! I have loved her from the get go in YOUR colors! She is just as pretty as can be, and yes, that gingham really goes well. The variegated floss....on my it does wonders on those roses, they are so pretty! You know why I have to have two...... lol.... it's because you refuse to give me yours! I never know what colors you are going to come up with. It's always a surprise and always just as pretty as ever. You inspire me, I have to have a matching set....xx

  5. Wow! Magic lady! She charms! I would love to wear this flower at the same time airy dress !!! Very, very nice!

  6. Just lovely lady! Love flovers and colors! Beautiful!

  7. At last I could write to you, dear Samm!
    Your girl simply tremendous! These cheeks, this front sight are capable to make conceited to anyone!
    With love, Tonja, Russia.
