Well - I won the first of the batches of dolls from ebay. I am feeling the impulse to rescue baby dolls who once were loved and have been deserted. The advantage of doing this over human babies is that they don't complain if I store them in the cupboard when the urge dies down...
They just cried out to be loved - especially the composite doll that has the white patches on it. All up, I paid just over $16 to buy them and have them posted to me from USA. Bargain.
Yesterday, I finished the sweetest little doll with a pink dress - all hand stitched. I will send a photo when ... well I keep on saying that don't I.
In the mean time - some more photos of my previous work.
This is called stash and slash (I think). You start with a bundle of 6 squares, and cut them in half any way you like. Then you jumble up the pieces, and stitch them together again. Pile them up again, and slash them again - only to stitch it up again, and so on. If you are very systematic about the rotating of pieces to be joined, you get 6 unique pieces that are stitched together in a common design. I kind of like it.
Some little tiny purses made from seed beads.
