Not much to say about the puppy update--he's fine! His stitches come out this coming Friday, but they are so far not really bothering him a bit, so he's had very little time with the dreaded Lampshade Collar. In this photo he looks really sad, but he's just lounging on the fluffy blanket.
The class doll is from the pattern I include in both my hands-on and online doll class. The class teaches how to make a doll using a pre-made paper clay mask, and includes a pattern for the doll and her dress. The hands-on class includes the fabric for the doll, (with the head/torso already sewn, stuffed, and treated) and the paper clay mask.
I'm still amazed at how many ways this simple face can go. I've done up three of them, Dorothy did one, and I just worked up another, this one to serve as my Doll Class Spokes-Lady at doll shows. Her hair is more of a 1940's young lady style...I've changed it a little since this photo was taken, but this is basically it. Now to make her dress fit that era. Maybe a ruffly pinafore apron?
Hope your weekend is lovely, dahlinks.
