Finally, getting back to working with dolls.  Am I completing all those I left in process?  No, but at last a little inspiration for some new dolls.
...different stages of progress.  Actually, lady with the rooster is one of those that I tried to get back in the swing of things with about 2 weeks ago, but abandoned because I didn't know what to do with her.  Then I cut the top off of a papier mache cone I'd made and stuck her right on.  This led to cutting out an opening in the cone and the seeds of an idea.  She still wasn't going anywhere, so I made a rooster, altered her hat, and stuck it in.  Now, I'm liking her.

The other two, I do have ideas for, but since it is rare that my ideas carry through from beginning to end, I'll hold off and see if these two will allow me to direct them, or if like the rooster lady, they insist on their own path.


  1. dollmaking is have an idea and suddenly the doll takes over and becomes something entirely different!! It is always a surprise. Gail Norabck

  2. These dolls are looking pretty awesome! I really like them at this stage.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and participating in the giveaway!!

  3. Gail - It's funny how the doll will take over and change its own path of creation. But it is often a nice surprise.

    cat - Thanks! I like this stage, too. I really am keeping my fingers crossed for Tilly!


Good to hear from you!
