Hammer & Sponge

We did it again! My friend Ariah and I had another gig at WineKraft in Astoria, November 17. We had a decent turnout, and I think everyone had a good time. We played about 2-1/2 hours. The only downside was that I had to get up at 5 a.m. the next day to work a 12-hour shift. That's not an easy thing to do. We're saving up our tips for a spa trip.
Now I'm in the process of learning a couple new songs. The fingers of my left hand are so calloused, that I need to modify my technique when palpating veins for IV starts. Thank goodness I'm adaptable.

I made this figure in 2001, just a few years into my doll career. A couple days ago, I received an email informing me that she finally sold!

She was made for a fat quarter challenge hosted by Lisa Risler, who formerly owned and provided the fabrics.

I used a pattern an Antonette Cely for her body, and the face design is my own. She is painted muslin, with armature throughout.

I just finished dusting her off and taking a photo, since the original photos were taken with an early digital camera.

Here's my inspiration:
