I've made some progress not only on the cute design by Robin of Bird in Hand Primitives but also a doll to take to my show in July. It is like pulling teeth for me to work on dolls anymore, as I'd really rather be hooking.
This doll is 37" tall, her skirt is made using vintage fabric and her jacket is made from a portion of a vintage reversible wool blanket. I just hate that I cannot rotate this picture on Blogger. It is standing upright in my photo file and when I transfer it here there is no way to right it that I'm aware. Now, when I took the picture I did turn my camera so perhaps that is the reason. Yet, I did rotate the picture upright with the Paint program and was able to list her on my web site just fine.
And here is the finished design from Robin but it still needs to be bound, at least I've trimmed the backing and pressed it so it just needs the binding tape sewn on. OR, I was even thinking of using a pillow ticking like Polly does on some of her rugs.
And you wonder what I'm working on now? I am working on my Summer Swap Mat for my partner. It doesn't have to be mailed until the middle of May but want to be sure mine is done and not waiting until the last minute to finish it. Can't show you a picture of it because Debra is my swap partner and we each check out blogs.
And then when that is done think I'll pull out a piece I started that is a Polly Minick design. This is also something needed to be completed before my July show but it has been tucked away with little desire to work on it because it needs to have some undesirable wool pulled out and rehooked. At first I thought that blue wool would blend in nicely but as I continued hooking with it realized it was distracting and didn't look good at all. So I'll have to bite the bullet and pull out wool....sigh.
