Commission order, that is. I'm currently working on an Izannah doll. It's a relaxing thing--never thought I'd say that about making an Izzy, since their clothing is so detail intensive--but after this last order, I welcome the hand stitching on cotton.
The last order, as I had posted earlier, was for 18 Carnival ornaments and a Marie Antoinette doll. The ornaments were fun, and a bit of a challenge, as each had to be different...the design stage was a blast, as was the sculpting. I didn't get great photos, but I've put them in a PicMonkey collage to make this a less photo-heavy post.
The Marie Antoinette doll...she is on her way to New York now, with the ornaments. She has wool hair (who knew you could make ringlets with roving?) and wears all the proper layers of undies. Her dress is silk, and the lace on her underskirt is antique. I enjoyed this challenge, and while I hope it's a loooooong time before I have to sew silk again, I'm glad I had the chance to make this doll.
A week til Thanksgiving--we typically go hiking and have a bit of turkey (both of us carnivores now, no plant foods!) and then just take it easy. What do you do for Thanksgiving?
