Dolls and Dresses June 8, 2011

Sorry if you were trying to view this post and you saw nothing.  When I published it all the pictures disappeared.  So let’s try again. Here are 5 dolls that I finished.  It’s a far cry from the 30 that I wanted to have made.  I will work on them between now and the next trip Karen takes to Africa.  I also finished 6 more dresses.

Last week I realized that Karen is leaving for Africa in June, not July.  This difference of one month has made me get a little stressed out in my dress and doll making.  I haven’t even started working on the shorts and bears.  Over the weekend I have finished five more dresses, so now I have 10 dresses finished.  My goal was 30, so I only have 20 more to make.  Time will tell if I can get that many done.

I’ve been working on the dresses for several weeks now, but I just finished 5 on Saturday.  I have many more cut out and some partially sewn.  By the time Karen leaves for Africa I will have (hopefully) finished 30 dresses.
