I have no excuse for not blogging, except that I haven't taken photos lately and it always seems boring to post with no pictures. Having joined the Iris Society in our area, I discovered that June and July are the busy time, with lots of volunteer hours getting ready for an iris sale this month. So there is that. Not sure it qualifies as an excuse, but I have enjoyed digging and playing in the iris. :~) Otherwise, it's just housework, appointments, square dancing, and general busy-ness.
But I have at least been working on dolls. I went in there and started counting to see how many in-progress dolls I have going. Embarrassing, but I have twenty! I know I should finish the first ones before starting any more, but the most recent ones are mostly Izannah type dolls for the upcoming doll show. There will be three sizes--22", 18", and 15". So I have lots of tiny thumbs to sew in the next few weeks.
Maybe I'll take some hand sewing with me when we go to see my son get married in Oregon in August. It always takes longer than I think it will, so it's best to plan ahead, right?
At any rate, I did get a couple of photos of these that I started in the last few weeks. I work a few hours every day, adding clay to each of them and setting it aside to dry for the next day's additions.
I'm really hungry for autumn weather, so I have a feeling the fabric choices for these bitties will be fall colors.
