Small variations on the usual themes....
After completing the little doll last week, I decided to make another.
I used a pattern that I assumed was the pattern I normally use. As I was turning it, I thought, "hmm....this seems a little difficult to turn compared to the last one I made."
I continued onward, stuffed the doll , and was just about to embroider the face when it dawned on me something was just not quite right.
Don't ask me why I didn't notice it sooner, but the doll is only 3 1/2 inches instead of 4 inches tall.
I will finish her but I am not sure she will have leather shoes. Half an inch might not seem like that much but in a doll this size, it is a considerable change. (Edie might get a little sister out of this.) But, I must tell you, I made one even smaller a few years ago and have not seen it since I made it. There are doll goblins around here, I am sure. Dolls disappear and reappear on regular basis in unexpected places.
And that sums up the way the week is going so far: small variations on the usual themes.
Enjoy the day..
and any variations of it!
