Photo a Week Feb. 2, 2009


Hi, everyone! Would you believe I almost forgot to post a photo for today...and I've been looking forward to continuing with this project....sigh.
Soooo, I'm cheating a bit here, and pulling out a photo of a doll I made some time ago, one of my first originals. Not that I made that many originals. I enjoyed my doll work for many years, but had to let it go to save my aging back. Now I'm making an effort to redefine myself,so I do a bit of painting and drawing, and sometimes knitting, to keep my hand in.

Mary, she is wonderful! I haven't seen this doll before, you have been hiding her.

She's just beautiful! Mermaids are wonderful... I'm sorry you've had to let dollmaking go, for you surely have the talent.

That's a great doll. It's a shame you couldn't keep going with these. I get the same problem with my back when bending over a desk doing art work....so I just sit on my bed and draw.

Enjoyed your post.

This getting old sucks.... I am having trouble with my eyes..my neck..my... well, you get it...
why is youth wasted on the young?

Oh yes I remember this beautiful doll and I am fortunate to have seen her in person when she came to We Folk and it was lovely meeting you too Mary. A pity there was not enough time to spend together a bit more.

Such a shame you had to quit dollmaking. She is lovely and I especially like how you did her top.
