Busy Busy!

I was abducted at the park and ride by Shadow, taken to dinner and then spent the night at his house. It was the past night of sleep I’ve had in about a month. I don’t know what it is about his basement. It’s dark and scary, but I always manage to pass out on the couch. After a good night of sleep, there was a bbq and then pizza later back at his house until he brought me home around 10. I crashed again shortly after getting home but was not able to sleep much past 7am when everyone seems to stomp around here.
After getting back from the movies this morning, I was back in my borrowed studio working again on dolls. The new pattern is a bust. It’s just to chunky for me and I don’t think there is a way to get the spindly limbs I love so much from cloth. There are other flaws as well, but the biggest was the final look of the doll. It was a good idea, but just not the style I’m after. I had also started working again on an Alice doll that had been sitting in pieces for some time. After finishing her today, I’m fully in love and know my skills have improved since I started a year ago. I plan on making a sister for her out of the same print fabric, but in pink. I used a pricey lace on her I had originally bought for a blouse for myself, but I think it’s better suited to this pair. After finishing her, I was back to sculpting limbs like a made women. I have much sewing to do still as well as the ordering of business cards and possibly a small banner. Though I’m scared shitless for the craft fair in August, I’m also very much excited and decided that if my brother bails, I’ll employ a friend to help me for the day.

I know give you doll porn! XD

Miss Alice, not the best shot, but it served its purpose!

Project Kitty, this was from last weekend. She now waiting on hair since someone forgot to match the paint to the color yarn she had stashed. Kitty may get a second go because this one turned out more adult looking then i had pictured.
