Finished Hoffman

I finally finished my Hoffman doll this afternoon. All that's left is the labeling, completing the entry forms, and packaging. Oh, and I've named her "Eolande," which is Celtic for "wild flower."

I think this is the first time in a very long time that I haven't had to send my doll Express Mail to meet the deadline.

The costuming evolved as I worked. I saved her hair for last, and as I had no fringe or other fiber of appropriate color, I settled for Tibetan lamb. It may not travel well, but will be fixable when she gets home (hoping the rest of her survives - like the armature, which is wire).

Oh Deanna, she is beautiful. Truly. The face of an angel. I love how you've made her skirt a garden.

Thank you, ladies. She's headed for Colorado today, if I can find an appropriate box. Then, if she's chosen, she'll travel the country for a year in one of the various Collections.

I don't know if there'll be any magazine coverage, though. I really love seeing all the doll entries.
