O.K. - I love the encrusted calico (or muslin, to us Yanks). Love the process and the product.
Here is the first one, trimmed and edged-- ready for whatever I end up deciding to do with it.
The doll now has arms and hands in progress and is getting some face paint. She has a long way to go, but is getting there slowly. At this point, not much personality has emerged, and I am not sure where to go from here until some kind of sparkle reveals itself, but B. E. has named it Caillou, I assume from the cartoon and because the doll is still bald.
Bryce Eleanor arrived around 1:00 yesterday afternoon, and she kept me busy and entertained until bedtime. We walked around the neighborhood (she ran), played with buttons, had conversations with various dolls and stuffed animals, searched for ponies in her coloring book, ate strawberries, played with the cats.
One thing she loves to do--and requests on every visit--is to watch Funny Cat Videos. She chuckles and howls at the antics of the various cats. This was yesterday's favorite:
After a rough night (B.E. sleeps sideways in the bed), I am not up to par this morning, but B.E. was bright and cheerful.
Getting her to be still long enough to get her school clothes on was a bit of a wrestling match.
Well, I have several hundred buttons to sort out and put away, toys and blocks to pick up, beds to make, clothes to wash. Then, maybe a nap, since I didn't get much sleep last night!
Then...I'm going upstairs to play!
What do you have planned for the last few days in February?
