Finished two dolls on my work table, more on the way.

I bought the "warty" gourd at the Running of the Gourds last February, painted it shortly thereafter, and just recently was inspired to finally complete the doll.  She's a good refresher of the things I learned at the Iowa Retreat a few years ago.  The face is from Sherry Goshon's mold "Cherie."  The scarf is from a seller I met at the CIFI conference several years ago - Elma Simpson.  The beautiful orange overskirt you see in the back is from Gypsy Pamela's monthly fabric club.

This Carolina Sea Hag is my response to Linda Hollerich's challenge for a summer mermaid project.  I molded the face using instructions from one of Linda's patterns.  Building the doll on a paper towel tube was inspired by an online class years ago with Jacque Uetz.

You are so clever to remember where you got stuff and who inspired what... you could go on and on about these two - there is so much to discover on each one.
Yea! finishing!

Oh Sue, they are wonderful! I LOVE the gourd doll. Her face is beautiful. And the fabrics, the scarf fabric is gorgeous as is all the other fabric - so sparkly!! The mermaid is wonderful. Can't wait to see what's next.

The pictures on the blog are more enlightening... and to remember where all the things came from, is remarkable!!! Both dolls are fun to look at.
