This is the first doll I ever made. It was great fun to work on her. I did most of the beading at Barnes & Noble and Border's bookstores. She is called Bookstore Browser. Prior to this I had never done any bead embroidery. I made her several years ago.
I have decided to do a doll for my BFAC project this year. Found some great fabric in my stash. Now to find the right face for her. I may have to make one to get the right color combo. I don't mind though. I love to play with clay.
I am jazzed that BJP will continue for another year. This has been a very positive experience for me. I am working to finish my last couple of month's pages and will then decide how to finish the whole project. I think I will have them framed, but don't know exactly how yet.
I am starting a new project that I hope to teach at my LBS soon. I'm going to be embroidering children's handprints. These will make great gifts for Mom or Grandma for birthdays and Mother's Day. I have sort of adopted my girlfriend's daughters so I have one surrogate great grandson here and a great granddaughter on the way. Can you imagine a tiny newborn handprint embroidered?
