OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!  Oh where, oh where has this blogger gal gone????  I believe I am the perfect example of that old adage.....too many irons in the fire!!

My apologies for my negligence in keeping my blog updated, interesting, and inviting.  I will make a better effort at keeping my house in order!!

Some of the exciting news of recent times is that once again my work has been published in PRIMS Magazine ~ the wonderful publication by Stampington and Company out of California.  They are publishers of many wonderful art and craft type magazines, with PRIMS being one of the newest.  PRIMS was first published in the Spring 2010, twice a year.  Now it will be published three times a year!!

If you don't have your Winter 2012 issue of PRIMS, you may still be able to find it on the newstand at your local bookstore, fabric shop, or arts and crafts shop.  You can also order it by mail at

Among other things, I have three raggedies in this latest issue!!  I will post them here!! Enjoy!!!  And please...rush out and get or order the magazine now if you don't already have it!!  You will not be disappointed!!

Until next time.......Raggedy Blessings to all!!

I have been working hard to get more of my designs into published form, and tonight I finished another of the primitive style raggedies!! Her name is Prissy, and she is a prim gal for sure!!

Prissy measures just about 16" tall, not including the length of her raggedy hair. My model is made from muslin, but she would be a great doll to make from osnaburg, too!

Prissy is made in the time-worn, ragged style, with one button eye not quite securely attached! You can stitch yours on securely, though, if you wish!! :) I wanted Prissy to look like she had been well used and well loved!!

You can find the pattern available here, both in epattern and mailed printed pattern form. Prissy, the model for the pattern, is currently available here!!

Thank you for stopping by!!

Where does time go? And this is retirement?? hahahaaa!!! I have taken on more tasks than time in the day allows, but I am having fun!! So all is good!! I will hope to do a better job of keeping this blog up, though. This is pathetic, not to mention embarrassing!!

Raggedy world has been in full swing, with some new raggedy patterns designed, and many new raggedies listed on my various selling sites! I hope you will find time to stop by and take a peek!!

My newest raggedy design (and the model doll is available as well!) is the primitive style Raggedy Maggie Rose! Look for the pattern in epattern form here, and the finished doll here!! Remember that all my pattern, including the raggedy designs, are published under my name Crows in the Attic Primitives!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you will sign up for my mail list, and come back often!! Prim Raggedy Hugs, Trudy
