Enigma Stones

"Project Bathroom" is almost done! I'm just waiting on a couple of deliveries of hardware and then I can hook it all back up........can't wait for that first shower in a much nicer space!
will take you to my other blog if you want to see what I've been up to. I did employ a few measuring and sewing skills to make a roman blind for the bathroom window - practice run for the others I want to make for the house.

I've been finding it difficult to get back into my normal work rhythm after all the hard work in the bathroom, but I'm trying to be disciplined..........I have an artist demonstration day coming up next month and I need work to show and hopefully sell, so I've been making a few more in the "Enigma Stone" series. This is no. IV and no. V is almost done as well. I'm catching up on orders and generally slotting back into life as it was Before Bathroom Reno!

Thinking About My Next Project.......

I have been very "into" my latest house renovation project - the bathroom - (read about it at ) and even though I have great intentions of making dolls and art in the evenings, the truth is, I am usually too tired to do more than eat dinner and fall asleep in front of the TV before dragging myself off to bed! Just an occasional glass of wine........

But that doesn't mean I'm not thinking about my next doll is even started and when I get this bathroom monkey off my back in a week or two, there will be no holding me back! And I'll even have the promise of a lovely hot shower at the end of the day, which I don't have at the moment. I'm having to do with inconvenient ablutions in the laundry trough with the occasional
"stolen" shower from friends while my bathroom is out of action. Nothing like the lack of a proper bathroom to motivate speedy work!
Here are my current bathing facilities:

So here is my next project, just waiting until I have time:

As you can see, this doll will have a jointed neck. She will have a jointed cloth body and I'm working on ideas for finishing her off. Soon, I hope!
