"Charmed One" is finished

In celebration of the last official day of summer, the girls had their 2 best friends over for an afternoon of frivolity and eating. Oh my, I would feel young again if I weren't so TIRED, LOL! I didn't think I could get a chance to get a doll done today -- I had a zillion other things to do -- but this evening I just sat down and DID it. The girls popped in some "Miss Marple" DVD's, so I took the opportunity to listen in on their conversations and get some hand work accomplished. I still have some clean up to do in the kitchen and the laundry has gotten behind, but she is DONE.



I am thinking in my mind that I would like to do a beaded fringe under the ruching at her neckline, but then I think back to all the beading I did on my Klimt doll and I tell myself not to be absurd. Maybe some other day... in the meantime, she is DONE.

I had hoped to use her to display my own personal charm bracelet, but as you can see it is broken, though none of the charms are missing. I wonder when that happened...

I also managed to apply the crackle finish to "Nancy Anne". Now I need to hunt down my satin finish varnish and seal her, then she will be ready to dress. I WILL finish 2 dolls this week... if I can find that darned varnish!

I think she is just stunning! These dolls have been a joy to watch develop - every one has been so different.

She's one of the prettiest yet! Your colors are especially great because they give her a very ethereal look! Now that I can sort of SEE again, I believe I'm going to HAVE to do another one! LOVE yours!

I really don't think she needs beading, especially if she is going to display charms and things. She's complete. Don't add too much.

Judy, she is STUNNING! I love the colors you used.
WOW! 2 dolls in one WEEK. I'm blessed if I finish 2 dolls in one MONTH.
