Yes, Chatty Cathy and her cousins (Nellie and Mia) are still here... But, due to the construction (off/on sawing of wood and sheetrock), I thought it best to cover them up, protecting them from the elements.
They are really itching, however, to come out and play and get new clothes! When the front bedroom gets finished with the remodeling, I will be able to bring them out again. Soon, it will be too cold to do anything on the house (and hopefully the bedroom will be finished!), and I can start creating new outfits once again! My mind is already designing those special dresses they will love!
