Note to Self - FINISH What You Start


Well, alright. In the picture here you can see that I have several dolls in various states of completion. Two of them are inspired by a doll from the book The Heart of the Tree, a book about antique wooden dolls. The other two are inspired by someone who suggested I make a chunky doll. In my opinion, the one in the front looks like "if Halle Berry gained 70 pounds and was interpreted as a cross between an Art Fabric Mills doll and a Babyland Rag doll". Both of those dolls are from around the turn of the century. It's very interesting how you can start off with one image for a doll and then they definitely have their own ideas about who they want to be. You've got to let them. It's a bit like parenting. :-) Heavy Halle will be listed sometime this weekend. We'll see about the others. I'm still "draping" them with cloth. And yes, my workroom is a mess again.
