So, for now I have some time to work on my own projects. Shamus is still looking for the right pattern for the Christmas Stocking. The Christmas decorations are all carefully packed and put away. It’s raining buckets so I don’t have to do any yard work for a bit. Very nice!
I have been itching to get back to my paper doll. The last time I worked on her she was barely half way finished. Indulging in “me” time, I got to work on completing her so I could make a new outfit for her next! Once I finished needlepointing her the way the pattern called for, I was disappointed with the eyes. If I were a little girl, they would make me uncomfortable. I don’t think this little girl would be played with much with the current state of these eyes!
So, I went to work on them. Thanks to my Grandma Cirner, my embroidery skills were there for me to call upon. It only took a little bit and she started to look more human, friendly, and inviting. Here is the before…..
Now for the magic of embroidery!
Wowzer! What an improvement! I am so pleased with this little imp. Steven comes home from work and informs me that the eyes are fantastic…. wait for it…… but…… I need to improve the cheeks! He’s right of course, I will work on that with the next doll, cheeky bugger, lol.
I just can’t wait to start some clothing for her! That’s where the fun begins. Oh and most importantly, I need to find a little girl who will love, play, and take care of her! Talk at cha soon…..Cyn
