Green is the color...

...Of my new dolls eyes! I'm making a couple more dolls in the style of "Goldie",
The funny thing is that I cut both of these dolls from the same pattern, only I used 2 different types of linen. What a big difference, even from Goldie. The weave is tighter on both of these and one more so than the other,I needed a tighter weave to facilitate the separate fingers and although the weave is better for them it's not so good for the rest.







Well, back to the painting and dressmaking and.....

I'm so glad you thinks so Doreen!
I love the look of separated fingers but it is soooo tedious, but so well worth it when I take the time to do it.
