Happy Saturday to you all! I don’t have doll outfits to show you today, sorry. I should have at least three by the end of next week, maybe more.
I do have some photos of works in progress and photos of a few “detours from work”, such as this pile of old cards that I dug out of my memories box. Lately, and due in part to Pinterest, I have developed this nostalgia for vintage illustration. Not only are these cards vintage, but they are from my loved ones, so are even more special. (So glad I kept them!) I even found a signature from my great grandma. I long forgot how she would sign her name. And, many are from my younger siblings before they had their own families; they would give a card together from the three of them, so long ago…
The sun was coming up so beautifully this morning. I went outside with my camera to see if I could capture the rising sun’s golden glow and long shadows. I found our bird feeder empty and looking a bit ravaged. Raccoons? I think they are the only ones who could knock the tray down. I know that the squirrels are mostly responsible for emptying the feeder. They sit there, sometimes one on each side, for the longest time, and eat and eat.
I dyed some rayon ribbon this week. It took a few tries to get the right shade and then I ended up using a previously dyed piece. Oh, well!
Earlier in the week some of these pieces were in progress. Patience is now dressed in her dress and sweater ensemble. She’s looking very cute, I might add. The pink sweater (for Talyssa and/or Gracie) has been blocked and is waiting for embroidery. The little yellow dress for Pukipuki is also waiting to be embroidered.
Another mid week shot of my work space.
That’s all I have for today. Hope all of you have a relaxing weekend. Bye for now!
