Here's Punkin, who is just now finished and in my shop. (I have lots of dolls there right now!) For Punkin, I found an old pattern--one from the 1930's--that I call the "baseball head babies" because of the way the pattern pieces go together. She's a fat little thing, with her arms and legs button-jointed. Her hair is Tibetan lamb, and her booties are wool felt. She's a little bit of a hippy chick, with her asymmetrical hair and the twists of bittersweet vine for a necklace.
I try to live in the now, and appreciate what is in front of me. But even though I'm a gardener, the last of the summer months and the heat just wear me out. I'm so looking forward to Fall! We don't get great fall color here--the desert doesn't do deciduous trees as well as other places--but the temps get cooler and the dog-walking can be in the afternoon with the hubs instead of only me in the mornings. We have gotten more than our normal 8" of rain this year, so maybe the trees we do have will be a little more colorful.
Have a fabulous weekend!
