And then there were 3

I'm just about finished with my dolls for Haiti! The last step is embroidering the faces on and then I'll ship them off to Sarah over at Dolly Donations.
If you sew, knit, or crochet, there's still time to start your own dolls! These are so quick to sew, you could sew up a few in just an hour to two. The pattern and tutorial are super easy and on the Dolly Donations website - check it out!

In other news, today is Ocean Day in Japan and I have the day off. Naturally, I'm going to go to the ocean and spend some time on the beach (wearing plenty of SPF 50, of course) relaxing and swimming. And also wearing my new wide-brimmed straw hat. I love a good straw hat, don't you? Hope you had a great weekend! :)
