Completed Mach 1, 2009
She is the last of the Seasonal Witches. Spring, Autumn and
Winter can be seen on the 2008 page. Forgot to add her crystal warts! All the
Witches are perched in trees. Poor Summer Witch, I haven't found the right green
leaves to embellish her branch with. I'll keep looking!
One Kiss Variation
I have been hoarding this black and ecru fabric for a year or so. It is
black flocked flowers on a sparkle organza ground. When I saw Michelle Obama on the
view in the black and white dress, this idea popped into my head. Very minor changes
on the One Kiss is Not Enough pattern - eliminated the peplum, changed her shoes, and
modified her pose. Wish I could take credit for the pose, but someone named Anne (I
think) made the pattern and used this pose. Very clever!

Tree Doll and Class
Here is Weeping Will, almost completed. He is made from almost all recycled
materials. His head is cloth over clay over a cloth reject head. His bottom is
an actual tree limb.
Our doll club is doing a display of dolls illustrating children's books and
donating the dolls for a fundraiser for the library where we meet each month. This
is my contribution. Her clothes are from vintaqge fabrics and trims. He has a
key in her hand and is on the verge of opening the gate.
Hoffman Challenge 2009
Here are more pics of my Hoffman Challenge doll. I was
really pleased with how she came out.
I made this doll for the Penny Doll Challenge on FOCD. She is from a pattern by
Claire Pruitt. Very interesting jointing and shaping method. For More pics, click here.
