I've finally finished some clothing for my new doll, Grace. I will need to make some adjustments to her dress , so it's a little fuller. I also need to tweak the length of the shoulder section -
I ended up having to make a sort of pleat and sew a button there to hold it. Actually, I kind of like the way it looks, but will still probably change the design.

Grace was inspired by dolls made by Izannah Walker, Helen Pringle and Anne Adams. She has a few proportion issues, but I hope to work those out when I make prototype number two - and make the doll a little smaller (although with a doll this size, she CAN wear those little Victorian shoes...hmmm).

Last week, I was tagged by Lone Pierette. Now I have to write five things about myself and tag 5 more bloggers. I'm new to this tagging business, and don't have a lot of blog links. So while tagging should perhaps be a surprise, I put out a query to FOCD members, asking for tag volunteers in exchange for a link to their blogs.

So here's the skinny on me:
1. I'm going to be a grandma (that sounds really scary to me).
2. I've been an Emergency Nurse for 21 years (that's scary, too!).
3. I love to sing, but am pretty shy about it.
4. I'm scared to swim in the ocean (kelp brushing against my leg makes me scream).
5. I have a bad habit of pulling out my gray/white hairs. Thank goodness there's not too many of them...yet.

A Big Thanks to these bloggers, who will need to write five things about themselves:
Fran Parrigan-Meehan
Carolyn in Australia
Sharon in New Zealand
Darlene Wilkinson
Donna Sims

Here are the rules ...
1 ... Link to the person that tagged you ...
2 ... Post the rules on your blog ...
3 ... Share 6 non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself ...
4 ... Tag 5 or 6 random bloggers at the end of your post by linking to their blogs ...
5 ... Let each random blogger know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog ...
