So I'll take the later dawn as a good sign, keep watering the new landscape so it can survive its first summer, and I'll look forward to Autumnal colors to remind me it's not just about the temperature--Autumn is a state of mind.
I've got a doll show coming up in a week or two--and I think I'm ready. Since the move, I will have to reconnoiter the set up stuff and make sure I know where it all is, but it's all here. A few new Izannahs will go this year, and a few silly dolls that I have played around with in designing clothing patterns.
Tomorrow I'll take Marie-Grace to her buyer. She's a favorite for several reasons (the buyer, yes, but I mean the doll) and I am glad to have taken so many photos of her. I made shoes of wool felt, and found an antique pinner apron that just fits her.
Hope your Thor's day is fabulous, dahlinks.
|She's one I've been working on...long way from finished, but I've grown fond of her unpainted.|

|Embroidery on linen, antique lace on antique cotton...I love my job!|
