Lester and Sally

I finished Lester and Sally last night. We had a bit of an incident at the end of the process. As doll makers know, we spray the faces at the end to set the colours on their faces. Lester and Sally panicked and tried to make a run for it.... Luckily they had nothing to grab onto in order the lower themselves down to the ground and to jump was just to dangerous so they just laid there hoping I would go away while they planned their escape.

I was able to grab them before they dropped out the window and it took some convincing that it was a necessary thing I had to do. Their faces have to be preserved and it won't happen again, I promised them. They stayed on the ledge and listened, but kept one foot on the window just in case.

By morning we have come to an understanding and they have decided that I am telling the truth. Lester and Sally were first discovered at the home of the Keelings. They are very good natured except for a little misunderstanding last night, so if you are in need of something cute, quirky and fun to work on, click on over to the Keelings.


  1. Thanks Verobirdie, Aren't they just the cutest thing you ever saw. Lots of fun to work on.... ;o)

  2. Oh my goodness, this post made me laugh this morning! How great are these two! Hilarious!

  3. LOVED the fun post, Ro! I'm glad Sally and Lester finally realised the face spraying was for their own good. They both look FABULOUS!

  4. Romona, they have such personality. You do such great work.

  5. Thank you ladies, you're all such a confidence booster and we can all use that can't we. I've got another couple to do of Sally and Lester, so keep watching this space...

  6. Thank you for the giggle, well, it was an out and out chuckle! You did a great job. I made some too about 6 years ago and now want to make some more.

  7. Hi Carla,
    Aren't they just the funniest couple. I loved working on them and plan to do more. So much character to them, what's not to love... ;o)
