But I have spent most of the last month working on my doll for the Houston International Quilt Show which I believe is the first weekend in November.

So after I finished my doll, her name is "Mother Earth" by the way, I continued on with "Waiting Up", who has no name yet. She was a lot of fun to make. First the chair was a lot of fun then making the doll and making her clothes. I love making clothes for my dolls. Her robe felt so warm and comfy in my hands I think I am going to make one for myself.
I used sheep hair that had been dyed. I got the hair at AFIC a couple of years ago. It comes from a local farmer. It was a little difficult to work with on this doll, but she certainly looks like she has "bed head". And lastly the little book was a fun little thing to make. It is just mat board covered in a piece of scrapbook paper with a decoration on the front and I used velvet ribbon for the spine. You can't see it but it has pages in it. I used some vellum that had seeds embedded into it. She was a fun doll to make.
I'm debating what to make next. I have a couple of Christmas dolls that I want to make so I should probably start those. So many projects, so little time.
