Vera by Tonia Mitchell

Summer is the time for play, so the July 11, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter  featured a very special playmate for you. Readers, meet Vera! She is very excited to drop by to spend some time with us. She took the time to dress in her finest apparel. She put on her favorite tie-dye dress complete with velvet vest, her special sandals and topped it all off with her ever so chic hat.

Tonia Mitchell

Vera was created my dollmaker extraordinaire Tonia Mitchell. She is part of an awesome collection of dolls and small quilts at the Tonia Mitchell Gallery. A special exhibit of delectable collectibles starts July 15 and continues through July 25. Vera sells for $485, but there are items in all price ranges.
