This is the doll that has been showing up in the Wednesday WOW posts.
I may have to set her aside for a bit, though. Just for awhile, until I get a few other "priorities" off the table. Sigh!
She doesn't have a name yet (they usually get a face before they tell me what their name is), but I've been calling her Shiva. Those odd marks on her legs and body are made with Shiva Paintstiks. I wanted to experiment with some of the pros and cons of coloring a doll before stuffing versus after assembly.
I'm not sure what she will be when I get back to her. Maybe a tatooed lady? In that case, her name would have to be Lydia.
The pieces were already sewn because I wanted to test the size and pose before starting on the Hoffman Challenge. I don't like the legs, but I think the rest of this pattern will probably work just fine. So, back to the drawing board to work out better legs and feet. Then I will be working on the Hoffman doll. It will be July before we know it and I hate having to rush through the finishing touches. I seem to do that way too often. Sigh again!
Anyway, you may not see the finished product for awhile, so enjoy what there is of her for now.
