Brunette

These are my brunette girls. I have 12 of these ornaments made now, but am going to put them aside for a bit, and work on some dolls. Working on teeny tiny does require a break now and then and really gives me an appreciation for those who create 1:12th scale mini’s. These are nowhere near that, but they are still lots of work, almost more than a regular size doll. I think it’s the fiddly factor, I also like to make sure there are no unfinished areas where something is missing and needs just a little something to complete it.

I have a really cute doll pattern I found in a magazine a while ago and have been itching to get to her, so have delegated some work to my hubby to cut some wood for me so I can get this done. I hope to do a few because they are so different than what I’m currently making, are easy to make, prims, and the design lends itself to other looks just by changing the fabrics and things the dolls are doing.

Today is a definitely a day of rest, no yard work, no running here and there, simple meals and relaxation at the top of the list. Sounds good to me. Hope you’re all into the throws of your Christmas projects or about to be.

I see in the paper tons of craft fairs going on and the stores starting to unpack Christmas decorations and potential gifts for others, so of course, guess who will be prowling around on a regular basis for those must have doll adornments….It’s amazing what you can find if you just stroll around and keep your thinking cap on. Your dolls will appreciate it too. ;o)

Back soon with my next project.

  2. Love the brunettes, who says blondes have more fun?! Teeny tiny does indeed take longer to do and I'm sure a break is in order to rest your poor eyes and fingers. Can't wait to see your wood creation, you have me intrigued!
