The Modern Princess



A little princess and her courtly beau
were out on a walk when it began to snow;
The beau took off his coat, wanting to impress - 
the princess said: I'm wearing thermal under my dress!

  5. A very smart princess who knows how to take care of herself. I miss snow, too. We didn't get any this past winter. But I won't think about it until November comes along - too busy enjoying the delights of summer now! I hope you show us the softie.

  10. I like her. You remind me that I need to make a softie doll for my grandson (5 months). They are so nice for little hands to hold. I do not miss snow. I'm just barely thawed out.

    1. Thanks! I'm still debating whether to use to gingham for the back of the softie. I think it may be too much and I should go for plain.

  18. Sweet little princess! Do you make yourself the drawing of your embroideries?

    1. I often do but not this time. My niece found this drawing years ago and we used to make dozens of copies and paint her dress in different colors and patterns. It was our 'thing'. So I'm making her the softie as a special gift.

  56. That's a beautiful princess! And what a good idea to sew "pearls" on her clothes. They add charm to an already elegant embroidery. :-)
