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!

Beautiful. I don't think I could whittle. Sounds like it would be hard on the hands. But then again everything I do is sometimes hard on my hands. I do it anyway.
Had to see what you were up to.
Don't worry about the lbs. That just proves you are healthy this winter. I am very healthy this winter and will worry about the assets later. One thing at a time. LOL

Nan - I've never done a milliner's - this is beautiful. But I love the pencil faced dollie on the right - is she one of yours or an old one or what?


Atticbabys said...

Thanks for the visit ladies, and leaving such fun comments too!

Dixie, the poor dear is an early rag doll. She tries desperately to befriend all the "pretty dollies".
I tell her she is pretty all the time, but she just won't believe me!
Nan (aka -crazy lady who talks to dolls ;-)

I'm sure they were discussing lunch!
Here's another beauty, Nan - but then, I fall in love with every single doll you create ♥

I'll bet it is about you, non-pejorative, for I know they have to love you. You have created a beauty there and she is grateful just being.

Losing weight is stupid. Let's just eat and enjoy and to hell with societal pressures. Cheers! Hiccup.

Besides, you are beautiful!
