International Women's Day Dolls

Comfort Doll 13 finished

The two Comfort Dolls from International Women's Day are finished. The third is yet to be finished, but I am keeping her for myself. Deb worked on the beading on the one above, and we had a lovely time sitting out in the arcade outside her shop, nattering to whoever came along. Highlight? The 19yo butcher's apprentice, who knew all about textiles. I was impressed!

This is Deb, beading away in a quiet time:

Note the mugs. A visit to Deb's emporium often involves elegant mugs, or ever more elegant cups and saucers.

Thanks Deb, for being part of this.

Now I just need to get organised, and the dolls will be off to Brenda at the Comfort Doll Project. You can see the rest of my dolls HERE. Not sure what sort I will do next.

Comfort Doll 12

Comfort Doll 12

Comfort Doll #12 is stitched and ready to bead. Only #11 to finish the stitching before Tuesday.

I had forgotten how much I like random Feather Stitch made up into flowers.

The heart is not as obvious on this one, but will be when it is beaded.
