Poor Thing

I have a bit of a "thing" for dolls too? I love character and art dolls. At the beginning of the year I attended a Patti Culea workshop - she is such a wonderful lady. My poor girl below has been without head, arms and legs for such a long time that I think it's about time that I put her all together. Her body and arms are from fabric we made in the workshop, and her skirt is fabric painted with transfer dyes. I'm not too sure if I'm happy with her face, so might have to make another one - her nose is a bit flat! I figured if I put her up here for all to see I might be shamed into finishing her!!!

She's going to be so lovely once she's put together. Love her colours. Looking forward to see her with all her limbs attached. :)

Her face is lovely Dianne, no need to do another one.
You have now been suitably shamed - will we see her finished this side of Xmas?

I think her face is beautiful! All of her parts are lovely and put together she'll be a real stunner. Love that skirt!

I think she is beautiful. I can't see anything wrong with her face. Look forward to seeing her finished.

I'd love to take a Patti Culea workshop. You did a beautiful job. I hope you'll show her all put together.
