I’m working on a pair of dolls for a couple of sisters. This little lady was finished just the other day with her sister soon to follow. I planned to present them together but I couldn’t wait. I’m finding that much of the fun in doll making is in the details: the individual strands of tussah silk to highlight her hair, the freckles on her cheeks, an outfit created just for her. With each doll I make, I learn more about the process and relax a bit more into the rhythm of it. It really is a delight.
If you happen to be curious, I’ve been keeping a public album to document the process here. Happy Monday!
