It's so very nice to finish a project, it makes one feel so, well, virtuous. This project is from Inspirations No. 65, created by the very talented Susan O'Connor.
I started the face when we arrived back home from our road trip, and have finally finished the embroidery, stitched the body together and then attached all the hair.
Isn't she gorgeous? My husband says we should wait for a few years to give to our granddaughter, so she'll be older and better able to take care of it. I'm inclined to give it to her now. It really didn't take that long, and all the fabric and embroidery is cotton, not expensive silk. Besides, what's a doll for but to play with and drag through the mud?
I still love those lips.
Now it's time to find another project to work. The log cabin quilt has been on the living room floor for four weeks now, so it's time to get sewing. But I'm itching for a real embroidery project! The doll didn't have that much embroidery in the face, so it wasn't enough to satisfy my embroidery cravings. I am very much inclined to finish some of the the projects I've started, so I'll rummage through those and come up with something. Maybe I'll sew blocks together for a few hours, then stitch some embroidery. Sounds good, don't you think? I'll let you know what I come up with.
