She is coming along...

Quite a while ago I made this doll's head, and her cowboy friend.
A little progress at last.
Instead of paints, I used my chalks to color her. I like the way it blended and may just prefer it to paints.


Her bonnet still needs some ribbon and embellishing.
And, obviously, she needs a body. Time to pull out the stash of lace and vintage trims.

I like the chalk - there's a soft, subtle look to it. It will be fun to see her dressed.

I made some Christmas doll ornaments years ago and your blog has inspired me to share them. Doll making is tedious, but I enjoyed it so much. Your dolls have the sweetest faces and so much character. I look forward to following your projects. Looks like you dibble and dabble. : )

Your faces have so much expression, yet they seem so simple, but in reality they are so complex. Wonderful work Katie. xox Corrine
