Amelia and Life Out of Control

It feels like forever since my last post, and maybe it has been....eerie.

First I made a commitment to attend a few impromptu craft shows with a friend and that meant trying to come up with an inventory really fast and I had numerous projects that were in various states of completion that I wanted done for Christmas to list on Ebay!


Well we all know about the best laid plans of men and mice...but with all that said I did get this girl done this morning!
I'm calling her Amelia and she has a lovely taffeta dress, tea stained lace and a shawl that was a doily made by a sweet 103 year old lady named Evelyn who passed away last year.  

  I did Amelia as a stump style doll. The bottom of her dress has a sand insert so she stands on her own.  
It is amazing to me when I do something like this to find out how much work is involved. 
But the wonderful part of the process is to hold the finished lady in my hands and look into her little face! The seem to have a life of their own. 
Now on to the next unfinished project!
P.S. This is what I am talking about....I forgot to put her little gold heart necklace on before the pictures...*sigh*

Stay warm and well!

  5. Amelia is Beautiful!!! Have you sold her? What an amazing talent you are. I hope that your shows went well, but how could you give up such a Beauty? That's the problem, isn't it? I know that sometimes I create something that I get attached to, and I want to sell it, but my heart says no.

    GORGEOUS Work!
