    you know, 9 times out of 10, the main characters of my books and short stories are named, Xavier - and now you know why

  • EelKatEelKat 
    I was one of those absolutely utterly insane crazed people mobbing the store in search of Xavier Robert's dolls back in 1982 :) so much fun!

  • EelKatEelKat 
    I never could afford his original animal dolls or Little People dolls, but when the CPKs got mass produced, I just started grabbing them up

  • EelKatEelKat 
    I had already been collecting Xavier's doll patterns and articles about him several years before the CPKs were created

  • EelKatEelKat 
    Xavier Roberts is the reason I started sewing, he was my inspiration. I made my first doll at age 6 and haven't stopped since

  • EelKatEelKat 
    because I had already been following Xavier's doll making career for about 8 years prior to the invention of the Cabbage Patch Dolls :)

  • EelKatEelKat

  • EelKatEelKat 
    Xavier Roberts btw is the reason why I collect Xaviers have dozens of pets named Xavier, collect Xavier friends on FaceBook,

  • EelKatEelKat 
    plus I think I've decided on a 12" baby doll size for the second set of patterns - similar in style to Xavier Roberts "Little People"

  • EelKatEelKat 
    wonders why my @zazzle dashboard says they paid 2 days ago, but paypal has no record of it -- ??? delayed processing ???

  • EelKatEelKat 
    taking a break from working on my @zazzle shop

  • EelKatEelKat heading back to @Zazzle - got more products to move to categories, plus new products to make, & layout to rearrange
