As the children played out in the kiddie pool this week, I sat in my sewing area and listened to them while working on dolls and doll clothes. Its been miserable hot here in southern Missouri and the kiddie pool was a good way to help cool off and chill out.
This is Susie. She is the first doll that I've attempted to do brushed hair on. I like her style of hair. I want to play with different types of mohair and see what kinds of different looks it will have.
Mia is the start of an idea I've had. I want to do some dolls that are dressed all in hand knit clothing. Mia's clothes took some time, but she was worth it. Once I got started knitting for her, I didn't want to stop.
Yesterday was a day of sewing up some doll clothes while listening to the Canadian Tenors.
Its fun to sew and sing loudly at the same time. Try it...you'll see what I mean. It makes me feel as if I haven't got a care in the world.
I hope all my friends are weathering the heat well. It sure has been HOT! Everything here is dry and covered with a layer of dust. I was driving down the dirt road yesterday and all the weeds, bushes and leaves need a good rain to wash all the dust off.
Have a great weekend. :)
