Watch Out for Germs - ha ha

New card for my Joyce Alice 2 etsy shop

I decided to print my pen-and-ink cards on 110# cardstock
rather than the premium Epson photo paper.  The cardstock is very  nice
and enables me to lower the price from $4.00
to $3.00
a much FRIENDLIER price, I think.

Will still print my blank photograph cards on the Epson paper, though.

Pattern Coming S L O W L Y

A few of the illustrations from the downloadable PDF rag doll pattern I am STILL working on.  I am making step-by-step written instructions with lots of illustrative photos, as well as a video.

My trusty vintage Featherweight, which dates from 1941.  My mother gave it to me in the 70s --- and, other than replacing the foot pedal when I first got it, it has never had to be repaired while I have owned it.  Just works.  Love my little Featherweight   :)
