OKAY Dotee fans! The final dotee has been received! I made this dotee for Angelicus. She currently does not have access to a camera cord to be able to post pics, so I volunteered to show everyone her lovely.
Sorry for the poor quality, but it was the best I could do at the time. She was upcycled using one of my daughter's old sun dresses that she has long ago outgrown. The petals are from the same dining room flower used for Smmarrt's dotee. It is hard to tell but I used gold toned embroidery floss for the outline of the mouth and eyes. And because I think the best things in life have a bit of sparkle to them, I added touches of gold glitter on each sunflower and around the face. I think she will bring warmth to even the most miserable gray/rainy day.
Thank you all so much for the heart-warming sentiments. Even with the bumps/craters that my road in life has gained, life goes on all around and it was nice to use this swap as a vehicle to merge back into the hectic day to day traffic of things.
Many BLESSINGS from my family to all of you!
