In Progress: The Sisters

I finally got around to working on the Siamese twin torso I started and left so long ago. Now they have heads, and are in the pinning stage for their dress. I kind of jumped ahead (they still need legs) but I've been trying to practice/learn embroidery so I jumped on the skirt first. The skill level isn't quite where I want it to be yet but I'll just have to keep at it.

Possible pose for them, though I originally had something else specific in mind.

They have a splitting headache right now

Attempted sinking ship, still debating on whether I want to fill in the ship more

Doll Update: "Plague" completed

but she turned into something else entirely, so shocked only to actually be...guilty?

I'm saving the mask for another doll, perhaps she's taken aback by that.


No reason for her to complain though, she's on her way to Australia right now where the wonderful Victoria Buckley Jewellery will host her for sale.




ok, minimal words- I've had a full day, now I'm so sleepy! zzZ

Jackie Doe

Another felt project with a "punny" name, this one a slice of Americana:

Is it unlady-like to not wear pants? (or a skirt)

Perhaps she thought she was so lady-like she could get away with it.

I made these "catryoshka" as a mini project.


Felt projects are super fun to squeeze in between fanciful silk dolls because they finish so quickly (comparatively).


Next on the blogging block, my just finished "Jackie Doe" and the finished product of "Plague doll" turned "shocked doll"...

Pink Bird- with a tail like a peony


Here's one of my latest- she already has a home! I made the bow front first and wanted to mimic the same with the tail but as it was forming, I let it get tighter, more circular and it turned out like a peony. This got me thinking, I'd like to make a small garden of birds as well as a formal bow-tail bird. So much to do!

Christmas Cards

take too freaking long to make but I'd rather have trees with backgrounds (original version is plain), see:

I still haven't figured out what I want to do with the fronts...
It's kind of helpful that I'm giving out very few cards.


Annndd that Will has decided to have Byron (my cat) star in his holiday cards, so I'll send a few of those out as well.
Here is the hat he'll be wearing (I added elastic and ribbon to an existing ornament). You'll have to wait to see how he looks but "unbearably cute" comes to mind.


Also, the cardinals I ordered for my present-theme arrived today  :)
You'd be surprised how much I was searching for the right ones- I think these are perfect.

This Post Is Brought To You By The Letter "E"


I hope to eventually make an entire alphabet with each bird being an individiual with their own personality. 


As you can see, this one is a little self-important.
