Girl in a red dress

This is the last girl doll for now. She is another girl wearing everyday clothes, the kind that she’d wear to school or a day with friends.

She has a nice cashmere sweater to fancy things up. Her bookbag has her school necessities.

Little Girl Adventure Day

A lot of the girl dolls I make are all dressed up and ready to party. Sometimes It’s fun to dress for the messy, get-your-feet-dirty times. I gave this sweet girl clothing that will take her out for a day of adventuring.

Little Witch

Very seasonal for October, right? You may or may not know that I listen to audio when I work; mostly audiobooks but also podcasts. I recently listened to a fantasy book, Strange Practice by Vivian Shaw, and loved it. The main character is Greta and she is described as very pale with white blond hair. The descriptions in books can get caught up in the spiderweb that is my brain and appear in whatever I am working on.

She is wearing a dark grey cashmere sweater with antique knitted lace at the collar and a fancy antique button. She has a grey lacy scarf knotted around her neck.

Her bag is full of important things- notebooks, mushrooms, coins.

Girl Time

What have I been doing? Working on some girls! I am putting together 8 but plan to get 4 finished up for now- and by that I mean before my next show. Next show you ask? I will be returning to the Arts Providence Show this November 8- 10.

Working on faces-

And 4 with hair-dos.

While I work towards a show, I don’t usually put new things into my etsy shop. If you see something go by that you are interested in, email me and I can give you all the details.

It is really Autumn here now and I took the air conditioner out of my studio window today. There are frost warnings in the outer suburbs but it is unlikely to reach me. I hope to have lots more weeks of dahlias to enjoy!
