Doiley Press

Doiley Press

I found a beautiful Doiley Press this morning at the market. The vendor tells me she bought it from a house where the woman was going into a home, and that both she and her mother were great craftswomen. She claims she made this, but I am not sure I believe her - the background is printed, and the woman is cut from thick ply and hand-painted.

It still looks commercial to me, but definitely a bargain.

Taking a Rest during Beading

The current Spirit / Comfort doll is developing a personality. I noticed it happen as soon as she had her backing on and she was turned the right way out.

This is her, taking a rest on a tomato leaf, during beading.


I thought I had her hair worked out, but she let me know she didn't like it. So I am off to tatt another piece.
