OK, I wasn't completely happy with one little, but important part, so more drying time is needed. Glad it's just Saturday and not Tuesday morning!

And the Gallery is open. I'm loving the first strange doll, I can't wait to see all the others. This is going to be fun.

I finished my Topsy Turvy doll...and it was a failure. My partner understands and she says that if I take it apart and make two little dolls, she would be satisfied. The case of wine and chocolate will be appreciated too. I learned a lot with this project.

The frog side is fine. There's the little frog prince sitting on a lily pad. I don't like how the lily pad looks on the back though.



The prince side just doesn't work. The frogs little feet and down facing arm keep the rock from being fully deployed. And then the prince's legs stick up. You can kinda force it, but I see now why they are always girl dolls. He's cute though, isn't he, even if after years of being a frog, he has no fashion sense.



So lessons learned:
  • Don't get over-enthusiastic with the design.
  • Don't have any stuffed parts project below the skirt/base.
  • Don't ever make a topsy turvy doll again.

ARRGG. Am I ever glad I did not joint the real swap for Topsy-Turvy dolls. Of course I had to create something brand new for my partner (and my grand-nephew), make the pattern, figure it all out, put it together. I've got all but the second doll. I resorted to (horrors) hand sewing. I mean, isn't that why they created sewing machines so I would never have to hand sew again? It's really cute, but I'm not sure it will hold up to a 1 year old in the end.

One more attempt at putting the second doll in the thing, then I may just have to send my partner a case of wine and box of chocolate instead. And maybe some juice and teething cookies to my nephew.

Still shooting for June 30th!

I spoke too soon. Everything started to come together and after a few extra layers of paint, detailing, fussing, additions, and accessories.....I'm done. I think everything needs to dry another day or two for good luck before packaging. Whew. I really sweated this one. Any one sent yet?

I made a ________ while waiting for some effects to dry. I will do another part tomorrow. I'm going to need every second on this one.

I'm plugging away at my strange doll....it's getting stranger every day. I've abandoned one avenue...not enough time and I didn't think I could ship it. But the other is progressing slowly. Drying time must be adhered to. This is a craftster rule that most of us disregard and then rue. Ah well. I think I can work on another bit.

I made a good start today. I'm doing two dolls, two completely different directions...'cause I'm not sure one is going to work or even be shippable. So, my partner is going to get.....something.....at the end of the month.....I'm just not sure what yet. LOL.

Ackkk. My doll is still in my head. I did pick up some ______today, which I hope will be the base. No time this week to craft and my craft room is still holding post camping trip piles and the remnants of temporary guest room status. But I can see it in my brain...I just need a 3D projector and printer....now wouldn't that be cool. Think what we crafters could produce.
