another girl

Tropical Storm Hanna came through- we got lots of rain and my sunflowers sort of tipped-

Not so bad, and by Sunday we were having a beautiful day. I went down to the South End Open Market to see friends and do booth research. I will be showing there during the South End Open Studios weekend on Sept. 20 and 21. On  Columbus Day weekend, October 12, I will be part of a Boston Handmade event at the market. I’ve been very busy doing all the little (and mostly annoying) things that need to get done before a show. Today’s big excitement (doesn’t take much) is that I will now be able to take credit cards- I’ve got my very own card imprinter- otherwise known as a knucklebuster.

Last night I spent the evening watching the first four episodes of the first season of Project Runway while I packaged up my magnet sets. That was a great way to get a boring job done. I have to line up all the jobs I can do while watching and then I’ll be able to finish the season- ahhh, inspiration!

Anyway, in between the other stuff, I have been trying to finish up some more dolls. Today I got one done. My brain must be totally fried because I can’t think clearly enough to come up with a name. Maybe later.

The good photo light is gone pretty early these days- mostly due to the angle of the shadows and how they hit my house and yard. I waited late enough to do these photos that I was working in shadows. I did find one place where the sun was still shining- I like the shadow of her hair.

  1. well, i’m sure that you already guessed that i love her hair! the dress and stripe-y tights are so perfect, too…i love that little double ruffle. :)
    and i think that she looks like her momma would have named her “audrey”. sigh…one day i will own one (or three!) of your dolls! :)

  2. I like the idea of naming her “Hanna” after your recent weather, but when I first glanced at her, the name “Amelia” came to my mind. Whatever you pick, it will be perfect.

  3. I admire your work, your dolls are adorable.
    We used to live in Boston, and now I look at your pictures thinking of how wonderful the South End Open Market must be. I hope I can get three of your dolls for the Holidays…
