BUGS!

I have moved all my stuff out of the bedroom and back into E’s room, so I have no excuse not to get working. It has been hard getting back into the groove since switching over to bugs in November… oh so many excuses. I hope that documenting my progress will help keep me on track…

OK, Let’s get started

These are the unfinished projects in my peripheral vision right now.

-The doll that is closest to being finished is the big girl (Agnes). Today I picked out and sewed on the trim on her pantaloons. I sewed the buttons on her shoes. I need to sew buttons onto her dress. The pantaloons need pintucks on the bottom and finishing up, her slip needs to be ironed. Her shoes need touch-up painting. Then I will look at her for a while and think about whether she needs a shawl and maybe a hat… but what did a child from 1860′s wear on her head? More research needed.

-Next is Haze. Her dress is basically finished, and her pants and socks. I worked on her shoes this afternoon. She will have beads on her costume. I still have’t figured out about a shawl- I really like that foggy-green scrim. I need to glue her wig on, and maybe do some touch up painting to her face. hmmm and some kind of head piece. oh yea, and do the stand if I want to send her to Kansas City.

-There are the 2 Womens’ Home Companion Dolls. I have been working on a sailor suit for one of them. I’ve got the middy almost done (still the button holes or loops to go).

-There is the cranky looking scraggly haired kid… I am trying out different kinds of hair and fabric colors and textures. Just laying stuff on and letting it sit so that I catch sight of her out of the corner of my eye.

-Then there are the 3 painted gourds- just faces so far. They are the farthest from being done, unless I get hooked by one of them.

-I have to choose which dolls to send to Kansas City. I need to choose 2 that I’ve already finished and then get Haze done.

-Oh yes, and then there is my Deare girl. The little one! I need to get all the pattern pieces together for the clothing and write the directions and get them off to Ike. And paint her shoes blue… those brown shoes just don’t go with the dress I ended up making!
