I was able to make some progress on the witchiepoo doll for my sister that I posted a sketch of a couple days ago. The pic above shows the pieces traced and ready to sew and the fabrics for her clothing.
Next, Witchiepoo was stuffed and sewn together, but she's way too pale-needs some color!
Ahhh...that's more like it! A nice shade of green, fit for any witchiepoo.
All done with the color, now time to dry.
I would've LOVED to have been able to sit her out in the sun to dry today, but couldn't because......
.....THIS is what we woke up to this morning. This is the view of our front yard out the back bedroom window where my sewing machine is. Although a bit depressing, it is nothing compared to what the folks down south are going through with all the tornado action, so instead of complaining, I've been trying to keep them in my thoughts.
Will post more pics when I can get some clothes on the witch.
Right now I'm headed over to http://www.primitiveatheart.blogspot.com/ to check out more in depth some great tips Patti has posted regarding drying oranges and different things you can do with them. I've got a big bowl of oranges on my counter nearing the end of their life cycle so her post was great timing!
