Milliner's Model

Those Skinny Milliner's model dolls! I haven't done one of these in sometime. Perhaps it is because I didn't want to be reminded of this winter weight I need to lose? wink wink.
As I'm cinching in her teeny tiny waist I start to wonder what it must have been
like back in the day when you were expected to look like this!!!
ANY who, I had forgotten how much fun they were to make. Who would of thought that carving wood (her arms and legs) could be so therapeutic?
But while I was going through fabrics for her dress, this is what I caught going on behind my back....hushed whispers and snickers coming from these two. Probably giving her some much need make-up advice or diet tips...LOL
I just hope it wasn't about me!!!

Thanks for dropping by and visiting for a spell!

I feel like a bear!

I've been hibernating!!! This is how it must feel to be a bear in wintertime! And what a winter it has been so far. I am a totally solar powered person, so this lack of sun is getting to me and making me feel sluggish. I just seem to shut down when it is gray and cold outdoors. On top of that, my computer was sluggish as well!!! Maybe I caught the bug from it, or vice versa, ha! But my very patient husband bought me a new, and much improved Dell for Christmas!!! I'm still getting the hang of it.
In the meantime I did manage to finish up this Itty and her friend (who was in
dire need of a makeover btw). You can visit them HERE if you'd like.
Thanks for visiting!!!!!!!!!! Nan
