Welcoming Summer

The unofficial start of summer is here, so I have decided that I must get out of my gardens and back to the creating table.  There are many dolls and ornaments in progress that are calling for my attention!  Here is a look at the spun cotton ornaments that I have added to Old World Primitives Etsy shop since my last blog post… yes, I am already preparing for Halloween!

And this is Laura, my latest primitive cloth doll with a sculpted Paperclay face – she is traveling at the moment, preparing for her feature in a future issue of Prims magazine.  🙂

I have been working ever so slowly on my Izannah Walker doll class, which thankfully has stayed open long enough for slow pokes like me.   This is where I am at with my doll now – her sculpting is done, and I am ready to apply her stockinette next.  I think that perhaps I have been hesitating with moving onto that step for so long now because I’m a bit nervous about messing her up!

  1. Your Halloween dolls are gorgeous Stephanie. I suppose it sounds really early for Halloween but I think this summer is passing so quickly that it won’t be that long before we are there…haha. I really like how your Izannah Walker doll is coming along. I know what you mean about hesitating before doing the next step. I often find myself doing that with a drawing or painting.

  2. Hi Stephanie!
    Oh my gosh, thank you so much for sharing your IW work in progress with us. So much fun to see her. I love her already. You are so talented.
    OH! I will be over later this week to get some red white and blue cuties from you! Decisions decisions. 🙂
    Happy week to you,
    Sally

  3. Hi Stephanie!
    WHEW! I’m so glad that our time skedaddled off together – I felt so bad about not getting back to you when I said I would. I hate being late!
    I’ll go check my email now. Talk to you soon re the doggie.
    Thanks again!
    Sally
