Back To Work

Catching up is a chore in itself, especially when it's non-creative stuff. I'm still working on that stack. But I was able to get some sewing done. I have a holiday art and craft show booked for December and I've got to get cracking. Here are my Winter Wandi girls. At least their parts. Some of their parts. I'm going to have to do a count. I have two extra heads and I know I need some more legs.

I also bought some holiday fabric. I didn't need any but things were on sale. The JoAnn's I went to had just been refurbished and it's beautiful. So inviting, warm, and fuzzy like. That was bad for me. I even had a list of three things and I came out with eight.

I think I have enough arms. When I got into sewing these lovelies, I realized I didn't have any blue thread. I mean, I can see not having white, or black, or tan, but blue? I have every other color. No blue. I searched high and low for that water buffalo and nothing. I mean, a seamstress is suppose to have the basic colors of the rainbow for thread. I have everything except blue. Guess where I'll be going again?

I get into a zone when I'm sewing parts. Some are easier than others. Some I have to think about, like arms. I did get confused at one point and panicked, thinking I didn't have enough arms. I told myself to finish what I had and then take a body part count. That's when I found things. Don't you just love this?


I'm still doing NANO and have a total of 9136 words. Behind but that's okay. I have a good three weeks to go. Still polishing the manuscript and I've got to start on some ornaments. Then there is the Goth Girl painting. Back to work!

Ok, I always see WIP's, but never the finished dolls!! where are they all?! Your art is outstanding. Hope you are well.

Thanks Ascension. Laura my show is at Krankie's Coffe House, Dec 10 from 5 pm to 10 pm and Dec 11 from 10 am to 2 pm.

Abi, I've had to make a decision about the WIPs. I have an agent interested in my manuscript and right now that's what I'm polishing up to send to her. The dollies will be getting done soon because shops want new stuff and the Krankie's Holiday Craft show is coming up. Thanks for saying my work is outstanding. I'm going to have to give you the 411 on everything in a PM.

Catching Up

Really working on keeping up with the sketching. I got a head cold on the way to South Haven and then when I got home it turned into a sinus...
