A New Doll






This as-yet nameless doll is nearing completion...........just a few more details to be added over the weekend. She's quite small - around 14" with jointed hips and knees (so she can sit without her legs stick straight out!) I'm planning to make a chair for her. She has loosely attached arms, so they can be placed in any pose and her fingers are wired. There is a lot of blue/green in the painting of her face and this colour has been repeated in the clothing, which is made from a really fine cotton knit fabric which I over-dyed by spraying stains onto the surface through some old lace in a fairly random way. Her hair is made from hand-knotted Suri alpaca - a beautiful lustrous, long fibre......my new favourite!

I love these slightly moody tones,they give her an air of mystery. The fabric looks wonderful and can I have her hair please? She has a celtic look about her?

I’d must check with you here. Which is not something I usually do! I enjoy reading a post that will make folks think. Also, thanks for permitting me to remark! casino slots
