I received a packet of letters from the kids at the elementary school where I did the Arts Day thing in late February. (see posting: School Days, below). These are really priceless. You'll have to click each one for a large enough view to read them. My visitors were Kindergarten to 5th grade classes.

She's sewn, signed, and delivered today (to the BG shop). The lady I made her for will pick her up there, probably quite soon, as her response to the picture I sent her was enthusiastic. The doll is 24 inches tall, from the tip of her hat to her heels. She has button-jointed hips so she can be posed sitting, or running as she is in the original image. (Logo for customer's hair-bows and clips shop in Winchester, KY.-- http://www.fairybowmother.com/) She plans to have a contest, letting her customers choose a name for the doll, which will be the store 'mascot', and so will get lots of exposure, good advertisement for me, and also the Bluegrass shop.

Here is a 'head start' on one I'm working on. The challenge is to create a larger doll from a tiny cartoon image. More pictures of her, if she 'develops properly'. I might try again, making the nose larger and the hair blonde, as in the original drawing. But I do like this face, anyway. This is totally a no-pattern project.
