WIP Day 2.. Spring Art-Doll..A Body For My Head

I have no idea what I'm doing...but that never
stopped me! ;-)
..I made a wire-armature skeleton
body for my clay head,(I usually make a cloth body,then add wires in the limbs)...and surprise, surprise, it stands unaided!!!
That was unexpected!! ;-)
Now to build it up!..I'm trying to decide how I'm going
to proceed next...Clay over foil????....batting then skinning???
hmm..on second thought..Maybe I'll just do a simple wrap over batting method. I'll think on it some more while I now work on fine-tuning my head!
More Later!! ;-)

Time marches on!

Already, nearly a quarter into the new year!
Here's a couple of things I've made since my last post..

I completed a hand-embroidered tea-towel and matching potholder
set for a spring swap.

I also participated in the neatest swap called Initially Yours..A-Z.
We were to create any character for our partners using the initial
of their first name and an accessory beginning with the initial of
their last name..
Here's what I created for my friend Heather Chandler...A hunchback hag, with
her caged canary..I've affectionately named her Old Aunt Zula of Appalachia.
Finished!..Old Aunt Zula of Appalachia

And here's what Heather made for me!"Initially Yours" swap from Heather All the way from the United Kingdom..A Kindly King with his Heart sceptor..and has my initials embroidered on it!..I will try to get a better pic later, but you can see a better pic over on Heather's blog. Isn't he fabulous???..THANK YOU again Heather!!...Did I mention how much I LOVE him?? ROFLOL;-D xo..
