Looking for the Right Hair

Averill number 3 (of 4) is nearly done. Just have to go through my several drawers and baskets of doll hair materials and pick somthing suitable. Once I find the right stuff, she shouldn't take long to finish.

Then I really need to get a start on my annual Santa doll for our ER holiday party a little less than 2 weeks away. I promise not to wait 'til the last minute this year.

Here's a terrific blog giveaway! Just head on over to Retromummy Blogspot for a chance to win these juicy fabrics. The drawing will occur on New Year's Eve. Good luck!

I see this fabric and think of all the pretty things I could make for my baby granddaughter.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate the birth of Christ, and Happy Holidays to those who observe the other celebrations of the season.

I'm headed for work this morning (and will work tomorrow as well), which means we will have our get-together and gift exchange with family in January. Most of my shopping is done, so this buys me just a bit more time to tie up some of the loose ends.

Slow Progress

My big plans to get this particular doll done have fallen by the wayside. Other things have gotten in the way. But today I had a moment to finish the face and finger/toenails. I find I really need to use my Ott light and big magnifying glass to do the painting nowadays. So sad. The nails are still drying, so I'm headed downstairs to do my workout ~ thought I'd get a jump on the New Year's Resolutions.

I still haven't started my annual Santa Claus yet, so that's next on my list.
