I haven't posted is awhile. I try to check out a blog or two and some of my doll lists BUT haven't done much of that either. I have been held captive in my studio for weeks. Nice place to be held captive BUT it's VERY MESSY!! Do you know how many body parts I have made????LOTS & LOTS!! And they are all over the studio. I finially got a arm with fingers the way I wanted it. It's for a small doll and those fingers are tough!! Well, at least these were. I have designed lots of hands with fingers but this one just did not want to cooperate UNTIL TODAY!!! I have a deadline to meet by Dec. 1st for 5 dolls and I'm praying and hoping I get these dolls finished by then. Especially after all the work I've been doing. I only have 19 days left. OOOOOOH!! WISH ME LUCK!!!

Our daughter Angela and our grandson Kyle are coming out to spend 3 weeks with us. WOOOHOOO!!! They will be here for Thanksgiving. They will be here to help trim the Christmas Tree. We always put our tree up Thanksgiving Day and then trim it in the evening. I'm really looking forward to their visit. I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS!!!

O! and it's by BIRTHDAY on Friday Nov. 13th!!! Nope I wasn't born on Friday 13th. I was born on a Saturday. But I love Friday the 13th and the number 13 is lucky for me. :-) We will have cake and all of my candles plus one to grow on and one for good luck will be on my cake. FIRE DEPT. STAND BY!!! I blow all my candles out at once. WOOOHOO!!! Hope I blow all of them out this year. hehehe!!

Well, got to get back to sewing more arms and tiny finger. Attach the arms to the bodies and then the doll body is together and finished. WOOHOO!!! Can't wait!!! Then I start costuming the dolls. Designing the costumes is my favorite thing to do beside drawing the face.
Have A Great Day!!
Love & Hugs

OH FRan! I hope you have the loveliest of birthdays tomorrow! Friday the 13th is a perfect day for a birthday I think.
have fun creating! I have quite a few things backing up here on me too. I'm always afraid that I will totally forget something!
have a great weekend!
