It has been a few days since posting anything new on my blog and frankly I've been too busy with life getting in the way and taking sharp right or left turns in a moment's notice to take much time to read other blogs I enjoy. But with grass cutting, drawing more patterns for someone and getting an order for a doll, I've taken other paths during my waking hours.
Yet I have managed to pull a few more loops on my vintage swimsuit (a Polly Minick design) and this is how it is looking right now.
It will be SO good to finally get it done as it has been a UFO for a couple years. Since it had wool which needed to be pulled out it didn't seem like a very friendly project so it stayed tucked away ~ out of sight, out of mind. But I can't sell it if it isn't finished.
Then I received an order for a Beloved Belindy doll ~ she is a friend to Raggedy Ann and Andy. Since I didn't have any already made up had to work on the order but this time I cut out two so will at least have one started for me to take to my Lewes show in July or have it ready for the next order.
Two bodies have been sewn but will finish the one for the order first; at least the other is partially made. As you can see neither has a face yet either. However, this is how Beloved Belindy will eventually look.
That is a picture of the last Belindy I made for an order I had from my web site and since that particular skirt fabric was all I had it required me to go buy another yellow small print fabric which has some red in it.
Well time for lunch then work on the Beloved Belindy for a while.
