Look at this colourful doll in the making!  The exquisite wings are a delight to behold and Olive is very proud of them!  this doll will be a real cracker when she's made!  Olive is fone of beadwork and many hours have gone into sewing one lots of tiny beads.

Now there's a real resemblance here - we all agree!

Innkeepers head.

Here I am - home for a week with a virus!  Have to recuperate with something, so thought I'd make a start on the Innkeeper Pattern.  This is the easy part - the fun part!  The hard part is transcribing what I've just done to paper, describing all the sculpting steps and how to colour it!  Hmmmm!  Might have to make another one and watch what I'm actually doing!

On the good side, I have actually begun to write the pattern up and have done quite a few drawings already too!
What a profile!  Hard to get a high forehead, but he will have a most interesting hat on and some of my favourite whispy hair!  I think he'll be an interesting character to go with his wife. No his face isn't dirty - that's his five o'clock shadow of course!

Raelene studiously working on sculpting her second doll - a Jill Maas.
Olive making hair for her new doll.  She's quite pleased with this one!
All very industrious tonight! Jean with her nose down working on another doll.  She's starting to crank them out now!  I've missed a few photo opportunities the last few weeks, but some lovely dolls being made here! 

"Ragtime Rats!"
This is my latest pattern called "RAGTIME RATS!"  I don't know if they will be very popular, but someone might like to make them for something fun!  They didn't take long to make and easy to do in front of the telly - if you don't have a pup who thinks everything on a low lying table is fair game!  I've been watching Swing Dancing on U tube!  LOL!

Tred & Bee
This is my interpretation of Ute Vasina's Wee Folk!  She needs jandals!  Her teeth are made from shell.  He ended up being cute!  I think I will re-dress her!

These are my swinging Rats!  Not sure what to call them, but I have just finished making the pattern for them! It's interesting that it doesn't matter how big or small a doll is, it all takes just as long to put together!  Same for the pattern!  Now I just need to get a decent pic to make a cover - and a name!  Anyone got any good ideas?
