Just completed this doll, and had plans to make her a dress or romper suit. BUT, the light is already fading and I realized that if I wanted to take photos at all today - it had to be straight away! So she is listed on Etsy without dress, but she will come with a dress or romper suit to be made.
I've also completed the grubby Mini Myling with black eyes this week,
but the wig needs to dry out so I can't take photos of her today. She will be listed in the weeks to come! (Unfortunately I'm working at the day-job again, starting tomorrow - Saturday, and will only have a couple of days off next week. Have to spend those days cleaning upcoming dolls and commission dolls - so have no time to work on sewing or taking photos.)
Sorry for not posting more during the last weeks, I've been busy with the day-job, and spent my few days off casting new dolls and doing some necessary paper work. I wish to post 2-3 times a week on this blog, but I guess it's not always possible. I will try my best though!
Last week I had some evening shifts at the day-job, and spent the time before work making some new needlefelted mini bears. Just for fun, and I think it's good to do something else besides sewing and doll-work - using other materials.
The first needlefelted bears I made for my dolls were these:
made especially for this set of conjoined Myling twins.
I really enjoy making things like toys for my dolls, and needlefelting is so quick and fun - so expect more bears and other things made for the Mylings in the future! I will make a little batch of them and do a shop update soon.
I don't know what happened, but somehow my studio has been in a terrible state of untidiness lately... Everytime I've been there I've felt tired, couldn't wait to get home and away from it.
I think it might have started when I learned of the coming renovation of our studios, and the uncertainty of how things will be in the future. Maybe. Or it could just be me being a slob! Anyway, my studio needed a bit of love and attention. So I got up early this morning, and went to work!
A misty, frosty morning! Completely suited my mood. I walked to the studio to drop a bunch of stuff off, then went to buy some cleaning supplies, and new plants for the studio.
I cleaned and sorted stuff all morning, including my plaster molds. Everything neatly sorted now - yay! By lunchtime I was done, and the studio looks all cozy and tidy now - like somewhere you'd want to spend time.
Of course the studio didn't stay perfectly tidy for long as I had to get some new dolls cast. But it felt really good being there and working again!
More next week, and hopefully I'll be able to complete the two remaining new dolls then!
to complete this Middle Myling. I made her wig yesterday and got an idea for her outfit.
Her outfit is inspired by her dark blue eyes, they make me think of cold, crisp autumn evenings. And her face is a little theatrical - so her outfit will reflect that as well.
I'm not the kind of person to make elaborate to-do lists, I've tried it and failed horribly! I have things I want to complete each week, get to work and see where I end up. It seems like when I try to make a detailed list or schedule I just end up killing the fun of my own work. How about you? Do you make lists, plan everything out? Does it work?
Off to start this doll's outfit, can't wait to show her completed!
