I hope you're having an amazing day!
Yesterday was very frustrating.
I spent ALL DAY sewing little black aprons
and every single one of them had something wrong.
I ask you, those of you who make dolls,
why does it take four times as long
to sew clothes for a doll
than for a person?
I made Hubby a Jedi cloak
and it took less time than this and
that included sewing a lining.
And he's six feet tall.
(six feet of gorgeous!)
Today is better.
It's cool outside and cloudy.
I made cappuccino and
hot buttered toast for breakfast.
And I won a GIVEAWAY!
The wonderful, talented and sweet
Penny of Angelsdoor
had a lovely idea for a giveaway.
A tiny fairy bed she made and painted herself.
With a weeny teeny fae on it!
And it's going to come to my house
and I'm just so thrilled!
Penny is a really sweet and talented lady.
I think she's the only artist I know
sculpting images in relief
and they look so lovely.
She makes wonderful little fae
and the charismatic Bebe
who has exciting adventures.
I also passed a personal milestone
I got over my fear of sewing knit fabrics
and made stocking!
See these? Real striped stockings!
I always keep one handy.
Handy, get it?
Uh, never mind...
I finished my Alice doll
I still think she looks creepy
but better than she did.
Not quite so Voodoo Alice.
And Miss R White clearly likes her.
Just to show I can make uncreepy Alices
(Is uncreepy a word? Well, it should be!)
Here's one I did a few years ago.
She lives in England now.
And as my own Giveaway has arrived with Sherry,
I can post a picture of the Button Bunny Baby
I put in her Bag O'Bunnies.
The face is a button I made from paperclay
and I thought it was a shame
to leave her just as a button
and she got a body and a bonnet with
bunny ears, too.
I need to get back to my sewing.
I have a deadline!
