weekend doings . . .

In 1991 I bought a book by Alma Schwabe : Geskenke vir die huis. The pattern for this long leg doll in the book tickled me. Friday afternoon I decided to make the doll from scraps of fabric I have. And this is the outcome. 

She keeps the cold from creeping inside.

She's wondering where everybody is, leaving her all to herself.

I like the look on her face and the torn fabric hair. Well, it took the whole Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon and evening to make her. I am happy with her - my first handmade doll. 

This was a weekend well spend - I also finished off this little painting.
