Yesterday Maureen, Sandy and I went to the 1846 house to do a little shopping. We were pleasantly suprised when the great Denise Aumick showed up, (Check out her blog and see what that textile genius does sometime http://wildthreadstudio.blogspot.com/). It was Lynne Ann birthday this week which inspired me to create, as I do for people I enjoy and the moment strikes. Well I was so inspired by her hair I decided to make her a doll. My first attempt at a fabric stuffed doll.
The body I used a linen calendar from the 70's and it kinda gave her some cool tatoo-ey thingy going on. I laughed and laughed as I made her. SOOOO much fun she was. I hope Lynne loves her as much as I loved making her, As I was stuffing the doll's arm with filling, which I was using a paint brush, the brush fell off its ferrule and is now forever stuck in her arm. Tooo funny but all part of the charm.
Tomorrow we leave for Disney. I guess its the traveling part that has me freaked. The baby gets ridicuously motion sick, I have to benedryl her to drive 10 minutes into town (Dr. prescribed) so a flight has me a bit anxious. I'm sure once we get there it will be nice. The weather looks like it is going to be pretty good and we're staying right at Disney so it shouldn't be too bad, oh yeah, beside the fact that K. gets insanely scared by anything in costume, I do hope she gets over that fear while down there. Wow, Disney...I know RELAX....R-E-L-A-X. My insides are a turning all about.
