It has been an interesting year so far. Most of us in the U.S. have had our share of winter extremes, power outages, ice and frigid temperatures. Now we are having a January thaw with temperatures in the high 40's and rain which is creating ice jams and flooding. To top off the stress level even more we have had a death in our family from cancer over the holidays and a close family member has been recently diagnosed with cancer. All of this has put a huge impact on my wanting to do much of anything in the way of doll making. I finally, as they say, picked myself up by my boot straps and started a new project. I designed a new pattern for a 12 " cloth doll. They are on the petite side and the pattern can be made larger or smaller, legs shorter or longer, you get the idea.
I have eight dolls I am currently working on which are in different stages, three are completed. I am naming them "My Fair Ladies". Pictured is a sneak peek at one of them, Lady Sarah. Stay tuned for future pictures when they are completed.
