Three Sally Dolls (coming along)

I've been working steadily (assembly-line style) on three commissioned Suffragette Sally dolls, and I've been waiting for a block of several hours so I could gesso, paint, and sew the faces to the stuffed heads. Wait too long, and the paint has set/hardened to the point that it's extremely difficult to get a needle through.

I've only painted one coat of skin-tone acrylic paint to these faces, so I'll be adding a second coat (and maybe mix a slightly darker shade) later today. 

All that remains is the facial features, stuffing and jointing the arms and legs, painting the shoes, adding hair, sewing the hats, and making their signs. Sounds like a lot, but the most time-consuming stuff is already done (the dolls are sewn, the dresses, chemises and belts are sewn, the faces are baked, covered with knit fabric, gessoed, painted and sewn to the stuffed heads.

I wanted to send you that very small observation to finally say thanks a lot once again
for these awesome methods you have featured on this page.
It was really particularly open-handed of people like you to give easily what many
of us could have marketed as an electronic book to help with making some money for themselves, certainly now that
you could possibly have done it in case you decided.
Those ideas also acted like the fantastic way to fully grasp that other individuals have the same zeal similar to my own to understand way
more in regard to this problem. I'm sure there are some more pleasant sessions up front for individuals who read your site.
