But he is coming along nicely. What a fun doll to make.

Then Morris received his head and arms and some beautiful sleeves. His outfit looks a little strange right now, but it will all come together. I think there are 12 different fabrics on this doll so there is a lot more to come. I started working on his pants this morning, that's another 3 fabrics. I am anxious to finish him but I'm going to take my time, I want him to be as perfect as possible. Well, perfect is probably not the right word, but at least the best that he can be! I made a couple of mistakes on his face but I really don't mind them, at least not enough to make another head!!
Pam's second ribbon, also first place was for her Lucinda. I almost entered mine, but I knew she was entering hers so I entered my Dorinda instead. Pam's Lucinda is beautiful and I'm so happy for her that she won first place.
Then we went to another room where they had the holiday dolls displayed and Pam's "Field of Dreams" dressed in her finest Valentine attire and my Ruby Valentino were standing side by side. My Ruby is slumped over and looks very depressed. Maybe she's sad that she didn't win! But I told her before she left that she and the other girls were only there for everyone to look at and not to worry that they won't win.
Then we walked around the fair, it was a very nice day, the sun was out but it wasn't hot. It hasn't been hot at all this summer I guess it's ok, I like a few warm days to let me know that it is summer since the winter is soooooo long here in Ohio, but maybe we'll get a few hot days before the snow flies again. Anyway, on our walk I got a couple of really cool scrunchies to use for a doll hat or something, we'll see where they end up. Carolyn bought a couple also. Pam got some nice holiday flags for her house. Then we saw this ginormous pig that had 10 piglets the week before. The babies were so cute! And we went to the fine art building where we saw some really wonderful art and some really strange art. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
All in all it was a lovely day at the fair!
