I’m getting ready for the craft show and my house is a mess. It’s a contained mess, really… I’ve kept my stuff to just one area – but it takes someone with my well honed skills to find the right thing when I need it (wink). I finally figured out an arrangement that lets me stay in the room and continue to get things done while my girls are happily playing. Let’s face it when they aren’t happily playing then not much gets done, we all wait anxiously for my husband’s return home everyday.
I’m really proud of my little dolly. She is made up of reclaimed fabrics, recycled sweaters and a really funky pink work jacket. I was so pleased when her arms and legs finally came together, this is the third version of arms, and they finally look right. Her legs were a bit of a challenge, she has a wire armeture so she can be posed. Her joints are also wire and her face is hand painted and drawn.
