.. still playing with dolls....

... and, here are the new ones since I last posted the pink brocade one...

This one is a bit of unusual coloured, almost tie dyed, fabric.  I gave her turquoise, shorter, curly hair.. and named her Aurora.
                                                     

















I didn't know how this fabric would look once made up, but I like it.  It has a more geometric look to it, but once the face and beading was added... it's great.  She is Olivia.

                                                   

















Then, in my stash, I found a bit of fabric with flowers on it...which I used over the Easter weekend... made things feel quite spring or summery.... hence her name.... Summer.


















A piece of beautiful turquoise and brilliant lime green.  Another of the Hoffman fabrics ... please meet River.


















Then, the Ice Princess arrived.  A piece of very thin flowery fabric with some odd dark areas on it.  (so thin I lined it) I did manage to find a beautiful icy blue area large enough to  make a body.  It has some factory machine stitch embroidery on it... which I placed in the centre so I could use it for the beading.  Only silvery beads on there ...  I've been mulling over some Nordic type names........... how about .... Astrid? .....


















Here's the back...another area of the fabric and look how totally different it is.  I gave her a unique bead from the 'collection' .... blue with silvery coloured circles on it ..with some almost ... coppery colouration here and there ... all the rest are silver or blue... icy......... mmmmm.............



















I have a little plan for them all when I get to the end of the project.                                              
There will have to be 3 more than the original plan  ... because I got too eager and sent 3 away already... hahahaha....oh, well, .... what's 3 more when I already have so many babies? .....

I wonder if there's such a thing as having too much fun? It's obvious that you're enjoying making these so much.

I can't wait to see what you're planning to do with them :)

Love the names and what real little characters they seem to have. Yes I am moving nearer to Annie and also my daughter - they will be just a 5 minute drive away - I am so lucky. Will miss my country views but it will be worth it - we can always drive out here for a walk and some fresh air! x Jo
