Treasures of the Gypsy doll FINALLY done

We had a terrific storm last night and today. I love the sound of rain on the roof. And just when I thought the sound couldn't get any louder, it did.

Today I finally finished my Treasures of the Gypsy challenge doll, and got her sent to Texas at no small expense. I named her "Merryl" which means "bright as the sea." Including her shelf, she's 25 inches tall. It was fun to embellish her with lots of vintage jewely.

Now I need to move on to other projects. I'm trying to get three sample dolls done (reproduction "alabama babies"), as I'll be teaching this class in January at the Calico Cat in Auburn, Washington. I taught a class there last January, and experienced the worst road conditions we had all winter (ice, snow...). Fingers crossed for this year.
