This is my latest completed doll. She's all hand-painted, including her face. I made her out of muslin and painted it pink and then painted the swirls with a zig paint pen. I made her little messenger bag out of some fabric Lisa Oceandreamer sent me a long time ago. I tied on fibers and ribbon. I crocheted a little round and folded it and sewed it on for wings. I dusted the edges with glitter. Her little messenger bag has teensy paper hearts in it with messages on them. :)
The doll with the orange feathers was purchased by a friend as a gift. I'm really happy about that. I mailed her out today.
I also mailed a small gift to my friend, Dot, in Australia.
AND I mailed my mother a letter telling her all about Patrick and the fact that we are engaged to be married in the Spring! Whew. Now, no more secrets. I felt like such a wimp not telling her about him.
It's Friday. Patrick has a meeting this evening but it will soon be the weekend and I'm really looking forward to it.
Yesterday I decided to run to the store so that we would have plenty of provisions and Patrick wouldn't have to stop at the store on his way home. Well, I came out to put the groceries in the car and there was his vehicle. LOL So, I went back in to keep him from buying everything I had just bought. That was fun. :) We both had white wine, but he bought chicken and I bought fish. lol
I hope you guys have a great weekend. I have a bunch of dolls all sewn up and I plan to do lots of embellishing this weekend.
My SoulCollage workshop is not going to happen. I wasn't diligent enough in marketing for it. I've rescheduled for April.
Talk to you soon. xoxoxox
