Long time since the last doll

It's been a long, long time since I worked on any dolls and it's been a long time since I've blogged about it. I am almost finished with a challenge doll for my guild in central New York - CYNDAG. (Central NY Doll as Art Guild) It's a fairy challenge. We used a fairy name generator and are making a doll for a challenge using these names. My is Hex Elffilter. She's interesting. I have to do a write up on her and am struggling. I can't post a picture yet because I need to do something about her face - just isn't right yet.

I'm also going to try doing a challenge on CDA, (Cloth Doll Artistry) for the Primitive Americana Patriotic doll that I have a link at the end of this paragraph for more information. The challenge is open to anyone who wants to join in - click the button and check it out - the more the merrier. (and there will be prizes...)

In the meantime - I am having a garage built for my car - this last winter was my undoing and I just want to put the car away and know it's okay and not snow covered or ice encrusted. Anyway - here are some pictures of the progress.

(hole for the Alaskan slab and curbing)

(Dave's back hoe that dug the hole...)

(Fred doesn't have anything to do with the garage - he's just my cutie)

When I get done with my doll I will post some more pictures - hopefully of the doll and maybe the cat again. Take care and have a great Wednesday evening. I'm going to have another cup of tea. K

About Me

My photo

I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years.  I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories.  I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent.  I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish.  Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years.  There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now.  My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls.  Who could ask for more than that?
