In the meantime, I am home alone and not good for very much. In a fit of pure nervous energy, I sat down at my beading table, threaded up a new needle and got to work. I was determined to finish this doll TODAY, come heck or high water! No matter what happens in Seattle, something good was going to happen here today, LOL!
I started at 8:00 this morning and finished about 5:30 p.m. I am TIRED and my eyes are crossing, but she is finished at last. And isn't she just something else! She has emerged from under the cutting table and blossomed into full-blown reality. I am satisfied with this doll as I seldom ever am upon completing a project. I new I could do it; it's just that the end result is so far beyond my expectations that I am almost dizzy. So much for my sneering at sequins. I never will again!
Unfortunately, she is too big to fit in my little light tent, so I had to make do with a flash photo on the kitchen table. Sigh... she really deserves better! Anyway, here's a close up that give a little better view of some of the detail.
For my next trick, I will attempt something easier, like maybe brain surgery. On myself!
