Valentines Day coming soon

This is the pin doll I made for a valentine swap, on Cloth Doll Artistry. She's about 3-1/2 inches wide and tall. I think I'll make some more similar to this.
So far, I'm keeping pace in the doll-a-day challenge. Have completed 24, as of the 24th. Well, this would be # 25. Check them all out, click the link at right....challenge photos.

Crunch time!

Today is Martin Luther King Day. I attended the breakfast/commemoration event at the Castle Post, and had a wonderful time. I donated an african-american mother-and-infant doll for their raffle, as the proceeds benefited in part, the local schools family resources center. The winner of the doll was very happy with it, and it generated several requests for 'an inventory' of afro-american and other ethnic dolls. I have only two available at the shop at present, a jockey and Felecia, pictured in the Sept 15 posting. So that will be a priority in the months to come. With four commisions already on the books, I'm going to continue to be busy for a while. Wish me luck!

Challenge Doll Number One

Yay! The first one is done! I feel that is getting off to a good start. (I needed that!)

I named her Eliza, as in My Fair Lady, because she started out with a not-very pretty face, and a cider bottle covered with a drab fabric, and gradually became a lovely, charming, and talented individual. Her head, bust, and arms are built onto a screw-on bottle cap. S
he can top a larger bottle, too, or the cap will slip over the cork of a wine bottle. She has several skirt overlays, and a sparkly print crinkled poly georgette slip-on cover for the two-liter bottle. Like any fine wine, she's welcome at any party. See how composed she is, even as she returns home from the New Year's celebration.
Happy New Year to all!
