New doll


This is a new doll for Jan. 2011. She is almost done now but I have to add the accessories which I love to do. I'm also working on several options for her companion. Finishing the base comes after the dolls are done so I know what color scheme to use. Turquoise faux fair was used for her hair. Her outfit is all leather which really makes my fingers sore-I sew by hand, so I finally went shopping at one of my favorite stores in Klamath Falls, Oregon and bought needles and a thimble.
Jo Ann Fabrics is the place! I can not leave the store without more fabric and Christmas sale goodies. My husband says why don't you become a online supplier? Yes, I know, he keeps building shelves and cabinets for me. Our son says; mom, you won't live long enough to use all that stuff. Confession; Yes, I know I'm a hoarder-pack rat, but I enjoy every minute of it! When I die all of it is going to your sister !! Wait til she reads this. Ha! Well back to the subject. I will put up photos of my sketch, armature etc. for the companion creature or doll in the next few days. Its getting late and time to feed the creatures and then off to my studio.

  1. Oh no! or Oh yeah! I'm not sure what to say. Of course I would prefer you never die and DO use it all. While I would love to have all your fabric and goodies on the other I'm overwhelmed by HOW MUCH you have and it would be a huge job to move, sort, and store. Especially as I don’t have your knowledge of antiques and know what is more precious if I had to narrow down. :)
