Janice – A Thanksgiving Pincushion Doll

This pincushion doll has been designed as a special token of love for my dearest friend Janice Spencer, owner of Traditional Stitches, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

I really enjoyed stitching this doll with the fabulous threads of Romy’s Creations. The doll is available from Half Doll Heaven under the name of Jeannette. 

The doll is completed a gorgeous Janice silver chatelaine made by the artist Roberta Dazzini.
