Photo a week...

Maggi gave me this little chair..... She found it in her travels and was thinking it might be about the right size for my present dollying project. Turns out it's the perfect size.

So.... .....














.... I waved my magic glue wand... wielded my trusty scissors and, stuffed, tucked and cursed a few times..okay...several times....and, finally managed to make it into this......
















Today I'm wielding my gun again...glue tube that is... .... with some of the draping of the dress... .... and... wondering how to make her hair behave. I've half a mind not to send her now... but, as Abi says...after all the work I've done..I'd better send her. I just hate the thought of her hair being all messy and spoiling the overall look. I will try some hair spray...but, even then....I don't know. This mohair is so fine and fly-away.... don't think I'll be sending many ... or...the next one will have a hat or a helmet.
