New "Averill" doll

I haven't made an Averill doll in quite awhile - and it's been even longer since I made an all-cloth Averill. I gave her hair this morning. The fringed upholstery trim I used is a little fussy and needs trimming, but it's a nice look. 
 
I'm thinking I may use this pattern for my Hoffman Challenge entry this year, modifying the clothing to suit the fabric.

Another Verity doll done!

I finished another Verity doll a couple days ago, and got her photographed today.

I don't usually use hair this color (I usually go for the reds and browns), but wanted to challenge myself a little. Her clothing is made from the same fat quarter bundle as the last Verity doll.

 
I think I'll work on a journal page or two before starting my next doll - an Averill doll, I think. I haven't made one of those in a long time.
