Exquisite Corpse Round Robin

Well, this is a lousy photo - I really don't think I've packed my light cube yet, but I can't find it.  But I digress...

The Cloth Souls group decided to do a second Exquisite Corpse round robin, this time with a Steampunk Theme.  (The group has several dolls going into a Steampunk themed exhibit at the Kirtland Library, beginning March 1 - I think that's the right date.)

Because of time constraints, we each did our own first panel AND last panel, but, as usual with an exquisite corpse setting, each panel was covered so the next person couldn't see what had been done.

Mine is a Steampunk Ghost, I do think...

"Cherie" in Progress

I've been working on a new pattern by Sherry Goshon, called Cherie.  I started out just making a few faces/couple of heads, for possible demo at the Time for Dolls club, and ended up just going on and on!  This pattern has an optional set of instructions for constructing a teapot for the doll to sit upon, and I have some ideas percolating on how I want to do that, too!

Here are a few in-progress photos:
 The photo above was when I first had her wigged and was working on the bloomers.

 Next, she has a silk-lined skirt and I've tied her hair out of the way (above).

And as you can see, above, she's had her hair trimmed, has sleeves and a top, and needs shoes.  There's more to go with the hair, and the pink ruffle at the neck will be replaced with something less clown-like.  Loving this pattern!
