Commemorating 100 years since WW1, NZ April 2014

 I am designing a wounded WW1 Soldier and Nurse to display in an exhibition at The Oamaru Textile Emporium (TOTE) where I sell my dolls.

The Exhibition is to commemorate the 100 years since WW1 this year, so I am showing my progress as I make these dolls as a reminder to us all of the futility of war, but of the sacrifices that were made.  My father was in the 26th Battallion and I am thinking of him and his friends as I do this.
I want to make him look exhausted and battle weary.
I think he must be already as he got tired waiting for me to make his boots!  LOL!

Now he's had his boots and helmet painted so he can really rest with his feet up!
