Today -Party and a reminder

A year ago yesterday the second princess was born to my darling niece.   Miss Emily is now one year old.  As I made her older sister a "party doll," I thought it only fair to make her a doll also.  The birthday party is today and I will be delivering her doll and a matching (sort of) tank top.
The party theme is Minnie Mouse, so I got an embroidery file for Minnie and sewed it on the dress/body fabric before I constructed the doll.
Here is a closeup.

 I took the pink tank top and put it there also. Now she will have a top that matches her doll.   Did you notice the legs and feet on the doll?  Those were a real pain to stuff with fiber fill.  the pattern only had straight legs, but I wanted her to have feet, so I added them to the pattern.
I also have a dress for the princess (pink and white of course) but as I didn't embellish it, I am not putting a picture of it here.

In other news, well really a reminder, my quilt in the Quilting Gallery show is now in second place.  So I could use a few extra votes.  My quilt, Fields and Hills of Alabama. The voting page is HERE.
Thanks to all who have voted.  I never dreamed of being in the top three. LOL...now I want to win!
