A Finish.....

This is a doll I have just finished for a mermaid challenge at the Dollstreet Dreamers club. The doll body is from a book by Patti Medaris Culea called "Creative Cloth Doll Beading". Her head is from another book by Patti called "Creative Cloth Doll Faces".

I had a hard time finding a good place to take pictures as it was a bit overcast. I probably could have gone outside but it was about 81F/27C at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Sweltering and no breeze. Opening the back door was like opening an oven. 

I haven't made a doll in awhile so the face was a challenge. I made a big oops with her mouth and covered it up with white gel pen. Then to hide that I gave her extra pink cheeks. In person it looks okay but in the pics it looks a bit extreme.
She has a very rubenesque figure so making a bra for her was a bit of a challenge. I'm quite pleased with what I came up with. Wired shell like shapes.

And here she is.......
I am so glad that she is finally finished.

Take care :)

TUSAL 2018 and the Full Moon for September.......

Well it's time for TUSAL. To learn more about TUSAL go here to Daffycat's blog. 

 My ORT jar.....

"The Full Moon closest to the September equinox is called the Harvest Moon, and it is either in September or October. The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon nearest the September equinox, which occurs around September 22. Most years, the Harvest Moon is in the month of September, but around every three years, it occurs in October."

That's interesting. I never really noticed full moons before I started doing the TUSAL stitch along. You're never too old to learn something new.

Take care:)
