Raggedy Annies

Finished these girls tonight. They are made from muslin and hand aged  with tea,s coffee, walnut crystals etc.  Faces I finished with acrylics, inks, and chalks. I used some yarn I had in my stash for their hair---needle felted as always. The legs got numerous layers of acrylics and sealed with water based varnish. I used 100% cotton for their dresses and pedal pushers.

Working on this new doll design

This girl is nearly finished. She is a  little taller(14") than my other art girls and I loved making her. She is all cotton(muslin) and stuffed with fairfield polyfill(love their product)
Face has been hand drawn with pencils, markers and acrylics. Dress is a shift style and as always in cotton. I needle felted her hair(fishermans wool) . My video on how to make bodies, needle felt hair and draw faces is posted on my you tube channel. Check it out.

Plimouth Plantation

Plimouth Plantation

This photo I took today. There were no  tourists amazingly in this shot- it was taken a few minutes to closing so most people were already checking out at the visitors center while I was the late straggler trying to take a few last minute shots.
I love the Plantation and think its one of the best places to visit in Massachusett. This is my fourth visit to Plimouth and I love it there----its gorgeous.

Rags To Heirloom Doll -one of a kind.

Rag to Heirloom doll

This doll body is handmade from cotton, her face has been hand embroidered and her hair is made from fleece cut into strips. She is one of a kind and made for my niece who just turned 21. I wanted it to be a keepsake and an heirloom in the making so I embroidered the pantaloons with her name, her birthday and then also added her mums, grandmothers and great grand mothers names. The dress is made from an old embroidered linen piece that my mum had given me before she died. The little pearl button is another vintage piece that I also got from my mum. This picture was edited by my brother and added to a photo that he had in his recent archive.
