Finally! She isn't really a Santos, but certainly inspired by Santos. The doll is cloth, needle-sculpted, then covered with clay.
Looks like the skirt needs to be steamed where the fabric was folded. Bought this shiny ombre fabric several years ago and used a section of the lightest, most golden color, but the fabric graduates into much darker shades. The shading in this sheer fabric has made it useful in ways I didn't originally anticipate because sections can be cut to work with a number of different projects.
Fee brought me this lovely 10k gold thimble from his trip to Natchez! I love it! Sometimes he brings me something rusty, or odd, strange pieces of wood, things that might work their ways into the Eccentrics. This time it was a sewing artifact, this thimble. He knows what I like. :) Definitely a keeper!
Winds are beginning to pick up again here. We were expecting the rain to arrive during the night, but it isn't here yet.
We thought Erin was going to come up here on Tuesday, but she had to work on Tuesday and decided not to come. She took this picture on her way to stay with a friend. Looks like she may have left a little late. (Baton Rouge, Nicholson S. Bound before LSU)
Expecting Hurricane Bryce Eleanor to arrive shortly. Much more welcome than Isaac!
