Wednesday WOW–August 28

A change of pace today. . . no quilting!


Unfortunately, not a lot of any other arts, either.  Today, I cleaned!  It started with emptying the dishwasher and the next thing I knew I had scrubbed, dusted, vacuumed, filed, and straightened almost the day long!  This is a rare occurrence around here, and I don’t stop to question when the spirit moves me!

All is not lost, however.  To reward myself, I used the little bit of time left to work on this doll.


Here is what she looked like at the beginning of the day.


And by the end of the day, she is half dressed.  There is a jumper/vest to be made yet, but I have not decided on a fabric.  There are a couple of possibles but I haven’t dug through the whole stash yet.  Delving into the fabric stash is not a task to be taken lightly!

I am also digging through my list of names.  So far, she has not responded to any of them, but there are many more for us to choose from.  These things can’t be rushed!

I'm waiting for that cleaning impulse to hit me. No sign of it so far.

Your doll is looking good, but I don't see how you can name her til you give her hair. That can really determine her personality I think.

You have my sympathy ... I wasted a day cleaning recently. House looked good for about an hour, then the man of the house came in with muddy clothes and boots. So much for the new boot scraper!

The rest of your day was well spent ... the doll is looking good.
