Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee complete!

Here are my two little optimist & pessimist Needlesculpted dolls that I have just finished!

I am quite pleased with them!  Now - the Cheshire cat!  That will be a challenge I think.

Tweedles coming together!

 I finished one of the little Tweedles today and set him the task of holding his brothe's neck while I threaded the needle!  He just happened to be the right height! They are already close!  I am enjoying making these and think I will make a few more, as I could have sold them several times today as I worked on them at TOTE!  The extra head I had has gone to a new home!  Someone loved it, so I gave it to her!

On to the next bit now, while they are still friends!

Tweedle two and three!

Looking dapper chaps!
Carrying on - I constructed a body and limbs.  The original legs were too short, so lengthened them and put in a good strong armature, because it could be top heavy!  

I was not happy with the second head, so made a third!  You can never have enough heads!  This one is much better and both these faces have a childlike look, where the other didn't, so I have decided he can be Father William - and stand on his head!  LOL!  Why not!  Nothing's wasted!

Here's a view of the body.  Just need to finish his braces and make shoes.  These ones will have caps!  Why not indeed!  
Just reading something of these little characters, they are two brothers who agree to have a battle, but never have one.  They never contradict each other but are always arguing or playing. One is usually frowning and pessimistic and the other more hopeful and optimistic! Interesting little characters!

Tweedles Dum & Dee

These two  are the start of my first two dolls for the new year!  I don;t know how they will turn out, so I will just plod along with them.  Head one turned out to be smaller for some reason, proving that even though the head size and shape is the same for both, they certainly bear no resemblance!  In the big scheme of things that won't be a problem by the time I have finished!

They both have different expressions.  I just wish it wasn;t bedtime, so I could carry on now!  I have been waiting for inspiration to arrive and now I just want to do it!
