Works in Progress


Baseball season has begun, y'know.  And end of school year activities are coming up, too. A family history project is on the front burner as well. I think it must be Sandwich Season, because something's gotta give.  Even though I have a family history project that is front burner right now I'll still work on art when my eyes are too tired to look at a computer screen any more.  

I like everything about the creation in the middle above but the head.  So I cut the sleeve off a knit shirt and might use it as a new head cover.  This is less drastic than cutting the head off but gives me the opportunity for a fresh start. 

The Izannah and then the little papier mache inspired doll  are the front runners for getting completed. Little One is getting a dress by this weekend and Izzy is getting thumbs and legs. I'll be using my "new-to-me" sewing machine so wish me luck.

The creations on the far left and the far right
are a new project I'm working on for fall.

What are you working on?

That poor thing in the middle. I keep hearing the Elephant Man..."I am NOT an animal!!!" :~P

I admire your painting talent...and love the tiny doll!

I'm working on real estate (always), the garden (always) and some wooden dolls w/ paperclay faces. And on helping my husband see the reason in me taking one of your classes. :~)

I know how the doll in the middle feels. I want to put a bag over my head in the morning.
I know she'll be gorgeous as always. I like the faces on the other dolls.
Warm Regards,

I'm working on a million things and nothing at the same time. Because when you work on a million things at one time, none of em ever seem to inch toward being finished! Looking forward to seeing your's completed, already lovely ladies they are!

Thanks, Robin. I just need to make myself finish some things. I think I let them linger too long in an unfinished state because I have a hard time letting go of the process. :-) I'm enjoying playing around with some dollie shapes that are not Izzies.
