Easter Feasting, A New Doll, and a Celebration

Spent a beautiful Easter Sunday feasting with friends - here are a few pics of the day.

I am working on this new doll - here are some progress pictures - she is based on my "Izannah Walker" design, but I have taken a few liberties with the head by giving her a moulded hairstyle and I plan to paint her in a more detailed way.
I have noticed that my blog has achieved a few milestones just recently - I have passed 200 followers and visitors to my blog is now exceeding 10 000. So to celebrate these milestones, I going to have a giveaway. All you have to do is respond to this post by leaving a message and I will draw a winner on May 1st. Not sure what the prize will be yet, but it will be something hand-made by me.........so if you want to be in the running, just leave a message on this post.

Our milestones are similar right now. I too am ready to pass the 10000 but only have close to 100 followers. Isn't that exciting? I'm happy for you! Your new doll is lovely. I do like her hairstyle as well.

I'm thrilled for you, Susie! Of COURSE I would like to try for your give away! After a record setting flood (we NEVER get floods), Spring has beautifully sprung, and everything is in flower, practically overnight. Very inspirational. I just moved, which is why I disappeared for a while, but I am just starting to get back to doll making...joy!

I rather like the fact that you have given her hair a bit of sculpting.

At the dinner table, what animal is in the blanket, about to, or has just been given a bottle? at least I think it's an animal rather than a baby!! gosh, think I better go and look again - don't wish to offend anyone!

Abi said...

Ok, I'm pretty darn sure it's a fur baby :O)
