This week I spent some time with the girls, making up the brown dolls. Here's the family:
Aren't they adorable? I had my doubts about the browns, because I personally don't own very many brown clothes, but I think they turned out great.
And can I just say that they have an amazing sense of color? I couldn't wear those dresses nearly as well as they do!
There is one more member of this family to show off, although she is quite shy:
Yep, she's the sister who joined the convent and became a Carmelite nun! If you don't know (or care) what that means, just know that it made me really, really happy to make this one. It took a while because the dress is fairly complicated (lots of layers) and I really wanted to get it right, but I think she turned out really well. And she'll certainly fit in to what is turning out to be a global sisterhood.
Now that we're nearing the end of the rainbow scrap challenge for this year, I think I have come up with a setting for the dolls. I'm really getting impatient to put it together because I really think it's going to be great. I'm also trying decide if I should put eyes on the dolls, and if so, just how I should do that. I know they aren't getting full faces, because there's no way that I could do that without really messing it up, but eyes might add something nice. I know I don't want to use beads or French knots, but I'm not sure how else to do it. Any good suggestions?
Hope all of you have a great weekend. I hope to get some sewing in and maybe bake something. And I'm just now getting back into the full swing of my usual exercise, so I'll definitely get some walking in since it should be cool and perfect for a nice couple of miles.
