Little Miss...

Fabric, thread, clay and paint.... you do NOT want to enter the studio at the moment.
ANYWAY,  It's back to the real world today so the OCD kicked in and I would not go to sleep last night until I finished this doll.  Thanks to Mr. Holden for the brand spankin new sewing machine!  My first ever, I think we'll make many memories together. Oh, and much gratitude to the talented Miss Linda for sewing the doll body for me when I was to afraid to attempt it for there was no sewing machine in my possession.
You are a gem!
Now, I can check her off my list of unfinished projects and move on to another one!  She was a joy to create.  Thanks Jane (Cloth and Clay Dolls)!  I definitely plan to play with the cloth and clay again.

P.S.  She needs a name.  I'd love to hear your ideas : )

happy blessings,

Christmas Cheer

Twas 3 days till Christmas, not much time left to shop.
Trim the tree, send the cards and cook till we pop.

The kids at the church joyfully sing
of the birth of Christ the newborn king.

Pour some milk, bake some cookies and color them crazy.
save some for Rudolf to eat so he doesn't get lazy.

and on that night we'll dare not roam
as we wait for St. Nick in our nice warm home.

Happy Happy Christmas Blog Friends!
