New "Izannah" Doll

Here is my most recently-completed doll made in the style of an Izannah Walker doll - "Esther". I had an interstate visitor last weekend who liked this doll and bought it on the spot - I had to rush to finish dressing her before the buyer left Tasmania.
Thanks to all who have responded with a comment on my 100th post - I will be drawing the winner this weekend, so there is still time to enter if you want to. Just go to the previous post and leave a comment - you'll go into the draw.

Here it is, Folks!

Well, here it is.....my hundredth post on this blog! I started blogging in April 2008 with a great deal of trepidation, being a bit of a techno-klutz. It took very little time to figure it all out......and now I am up to posting for the hundredth time. As promised, I will be holding a draw to celebrate this milestone. All you need to do to be in the draw to win a little handmade something made by me, just leave a comment below and I will add your name. If you don't mind doing it, you can also leave an email contact, but I understand if you don't wish to do this - you will still go into the draw.
So to celebrate post no 100, I have a real mixed bag, a miscellany, a melange of eclectica here today.
Firstly, we visited a friend who rescues orphaned wildlife and hand-rears them to be returned back to the bush. Sadly, he says our Tassie Devil numbers are so depleted (from devil facial tumour disease) that he thinks these will be the last devils he rears. The other animal is a wallaby, which should have been weaned by now, but still returns twice a day for his sucky-bottle of 'Wambaroo', which is a special formula for marsupials.
Secondly, I was the lucky winner of Cynthia's birthday giveaway (http://www.thefairiesnest.blogspot.com/) - this little sweetie is what arrived in the post a couple of days ago. Go and have a look at her fabulous fabric creations.
Thirdly, here are some panels I painted to go beside the door of the new computer lab that has been installed in the Art Department of the high school I work at - the kids like them - a bit more interesting than blank chipboard!
And lastly, this head is a new Izannah Walker-style doll that I am working on. I hope to get it finished this week, but it's not looking good for time.....we'll see!
A thousand thanks to all my followers and visitors who have left great comments - you have all made this such a blast! I'll draw the winner of the giveaway on November 1st.
