This rocks. This is incredible! What a little work of art! I love it...  Is the girl a clay model or a plushie? I LOVE this!

So beautiful! I can feel the breeze blowing from the movement you got in the piece. And it is a piece of art! Smiley

I am so glad you worked out the kite detail...I thought the girl was wonderful on her own when you previewed her, but the addition of the kite is the best!  I love that you even have the grass blowing!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Thanks, everyone! The girl is basically a tiny Waldorf style doll, complete with a shaped head, knit fabric body, and wool wrapped wire armature to make her poseable. Her skirt is sewn to the inside of an arm and also gathered and sewn to itself. It helped to have a stiff fabric! Originally, the kite had a tail but it was too heavy and had to be removed.
