Nearly done

Bear with me, I'm nearly finished!! I orginally went to the basement to find some vintage lace, but well, whatever... next discovery! after my quilty phase I moved onto dolls and a lot of them! blimey, the work that went into this stuff, hard to believe I ever had the patience
Oh no, where's my body??? I used to hate painting faces and still do, just not my thing. In the absence of classes I bought yet another load of books, my favs were from Elinor Peace Bailey and Patti Medaris Culea

Seriously pregnant and hormonal!!! oddly enough, I remember this well

The start of long and tall in my art. Last year the art teacher commented she'd never met anyone who would consistently choose such a long narrow piece of paper to work on, apparently it can be a diffficult format to use, but not if you're painting tall trees (as I did) nearly every time!!

Your doll making phase was quite wonderful! It does not show that you did not enjoy doing faces, these are great!!! I agree about being able to pile things on too.
My mother was the doll maker and I never ventured there....she made teeny tiny miniature type things, she's too busy now with a new chapter in her life.
I can see why you got sidetracked in the basement, so many wonderful creations and memories there!
