My Doll is making progress

I took some photographs when I was out for my walk today. There are some gorgeous wild flowers around. The thistles are particularly gorgeous - especially the itsy bitsy ones.

I haven't had much time yesterday or today but I did manage to get my doll sculpted, her face drawn and her face and body painted. I am thrilled to have got this far. I was dreading drawing the face - it's not brilliant - but since it's my first attempt I am reasonably happy with it. Once I have her eyes painted in and some "make-up" painted she will look OK....... I think. She is hanging in my studio to dry.

Now I am busy putting thread and fabrics etc together to make her clothes - now that's something I think I can do!
