spirit doll

I made this doll as a sample for our doll group meeting. She is emblellished with beads, embroidery, saworski crystals, bells and yarns. She has tiny pewter hands, also. I made kits for everyone using imported silks, beads, and other trims. They all turned out nice but I didn't take my camera. ;-((

A new Jacket

I finally finished another new jacket. This is a larger size and will be for sale at our annual art and craft show. The jacket is built on a sweat shirt with various fabrics and trims. I really enjoy making them but can only do so many along with quilts, dolls, bags, art quilts.

She's done I think

Here she is. I think she's finished except for some props. Tanya had a photo transfer face for each of us. I did needle sculpt the nose a bit. She was fun to make. Gee, I might to have to make another one.

She's getting there.

Here is Gwinneth, the good witch, somewhat dressed. Not finished yet but getting there.

A fun day

Today, Valerie and I did a class with Tanya Greb. It is a delightful witch in the making. Tanya did a photo transfer face for each of us and it is her own pattern. There were beginner doll makers as well as some of us more experienced "artists"?? We had a fun day eating pizza, sharing and laughing. This is my girl partially completed with her garments behind her before they get a coffee dip. Yes, she has lace, too. I hope to complete her tomorrow so will post more photos then.

I am in the mood to finish up some unfinished dolls, purses, quilts and jackets before I allow myself to start anything new. Today I finished a handbag and did a little work on a couple of baby quilts. A little each day!!!!

The last one for a while

Yes, the last RR doll will go in the mail tomorrow. Then I can complete the doll from Nat's class. She is really just about there, too. Anyway this flirtatious doll will be in the mail tomorrow so I'm ready for the next 3 to arrive. Whew!!!

Yet another RR doll

As you can see I have taken a little break from Nat's doll to get these RR dolls added to and ready to mail. This one has a most interesting head, hair and lips. Not to mention her wonderful -ss. You'll just have to guess on that but it would put Jennifer's in second place.
