Well I haven't, mostly because I've had my head down, working! I have six new dolls in the works--all w/ Izzy bodies using Dixie Redmond's method of construction. Four are little Izzies, one is a little black toddler w/ big brown eyes, and one is a Googly because I always smile when I see them in the antique doll magazine.
|This Googly looks a little worried, but she's still awfully cute.|
I spent yesterday cutting out the "body suit" for each of them, along with six sets of clothes--chemise, petticoat, bloomers, dress, apron and / or bonnet. Now for the sewing. Guess I'll stay busy w/ handwork for the next little while!
Other than dolls, we had a wonderful Mother's Day celebration here at our place. Well, part Mother's Day, part reunion between kids and grand kids, and part birthday party for my lovely Phillip who hates parties and threatened not to show up if I made a big deal of it. My daughter was there w/ her hub and the twins...and a good friend of mine--we've known each other since Junior High--was present w/ all her kids and grand-kids. The good friend played photographer for the day, so once she sends me the files, I'll post pics. I think she got some good ones.
Until then, I'll be in the back room, working on Izzy Unders.
