New Dolly Almost Done!

I have been working on a new one.  Smaller than my usual dolls.  She has button jointed hips, hidden shank button shoulders and stitch jointed elbows and knees.  First attempt at this and not sure if I like it.  I do like it in this size doll.  She is about 18" long with pixie petite arms and legs so proportion is purposefully off.  If I do another this size or smaller, I think I will play with wood bead joints. 

She has a gorgeous wig and that is my inspiration peice for this doll.  I made the doll to fit the wig LOL.  Never done that before but it worked.  It is a gorgeous long, mohair wig in a golden blonde. 

I have to sketch her face and then paint it but that is all, oh and stitch the wig permanently on.  I finished her attire today.  I made my first pair of felt shoes!  Yeah : )   

I love her color scheme and she will have her own vintage teddy bear.  Oh and her head turns.

Now, I am ready to work on a baby next.  It's been so long.

I hope to get my little ones face done in the next few days and will post pics, need a name also.  As always, I am as pokey as a mouse but this is how I stay sane so it's okay with me except when I take almost a year off like I did before I made Kelly~Belle.  Her pattern was marinating in my brain for so long. 

I am dying to soft sculpt again.  Sooooo that will be fun and a new challenge since it's been ages.  I am still undecided, cotton, soft sculpt pattern,  head pattern...  I have an idea I want to try though and am thinking probably cotton knit.

I hope you all are doing well and dolls are keeping you sane or driving you insane, it's always one of the two LOL.

Hugs,
