Makin' a dolly...

Haven't done a doll since ..uhm....I forget how long ago, but a long time.  Since Madame Pompadour.   Remember her?  She took a lot out of me I guess.  Was it 2009?  Must look back sometime to check.
Wow....time flies.  Even if you aren't always having fun.

Anyway.... this is Alice in Steampunkland.  She looks like fun .. and, the pattern has a ton of great info to help get her looking good...

Here she is so far.... please don't judge yet..... there are a lot more steps to getting her face just how I want it.  And, if it doesn't please me, there will be other faces......... until I get it right.













Oooooh.... and, here is the really cute part...there is a bunny.   Can't wait to begin sculpting him.













Here is Alice when she is completed.... I hope mine eventually has a hint of a little smile..as this one does......hmmmm..... must continue working on those lips.........

You're going to show us the play-by-play I hope. Are you going to make the rabbit after or at the same time? I'm looking forward to the progress.

Hey Vee can't imagine that you have already had your first snow. We only have wet weather here:-)
Your doll is coming along beautifully. Amazing face but then you are so talented

Hi stranger!

It's been ages since I have visited my blog friends but I'm trying to get back into some form of normality after a very emotional and busy year. I've been very lax with blogging too.

It's lovely to 'see' you again. I'm loving how your Alice is coming along, particularly love her eyes! I'll look forward to seeing the end result. :)

Have a great weekend! xx

Alice is already looking good. I'm sure your Alice will look amazing by the time you have completed the project. Looking forward to the process.
Hugs xx

Has it been that long? GET MAKING, GIRL! You are so good at it!!! I want to start doing lots of things in the new year and one of them is making a doll or two. I might be picking your brain about it!
