I have done a thorough recon of the entire house, the shed, and the garage. During our move, I tried to direct all the doll stuff to the studio, but (long story) the movers by that point were ready to just shove a box...anywhere. So, definite recon action going on. Plus I'm changing the look of the booth up a tiny bit, so there was fabric assessment in there too. I know, I know...if it ain't broke, don't fix it, but I had to tweek it a little. Photos of the set up next week.
Last week I spoke to the show promoter/hostess about some arrangements.
At some point she said; "The Cheshire cat doll I bought from you last year is lonely. Do you have any more cat dolls?"
I did not, but I had an idea.

Dear little Xenny had not sold. I thought she was cute, but apparently I was the only one. Even Miss D, upon seeing her said..."she's great, but she needs...something." So now Cheshire has a companion, if Miss. D. likes her. If not, I think she'll find a new home soon enough.
It's funny how once in a while I miss what a doll wants to be. Maybe it's because I make several at one time and I'm not listening carefully enough to each one. I don't miss it big, I just stop before they're really, truly, finished. Since then I've been reviewing a few dolls in that light. In doing so, I went over the photo albums of dolls I've sold over the last few years. Holy COW I've made a lot of dolls! It's easy to lose sight of that, when I'm always surrounded by them, but a couple hundred have gone to new homes. That's not the point, but it was kind of a shock.
Here is Xenny, all dolled up. Hope your weekend is fabulous, dahlinks.
