dolls

i haven't been quilting for about two months.  it is not like i haven't tried, for some reason i just keep messing up fabric.  so i decided my hands into making dolls and i like it.  quilting is still my first love, but for some reason my creative flow in not into my quilts.  life is kind of crazy right now for me.  my personal life still have somethings that need solving and that should be cleared up by the end of the month.  so check out my dolls and i hope you like it.


the first three dolls, arms and legs were made from coat hanger's. the other dolls were made by following a book and i added my little changes to it. i am not good at making their cloths. this will be something that i will have to work on. oh i forgot, the hair is real dreadlocks. and no they are not my locs.  the hair was give to me by my locitian.


stitches for now.

happy new year to you and your family!

Beautiful creations for someone who's up against a roadblock in her quilting.

How wonderful! I'm glad you took a break from quilting so we could discover this other talent of yours.

I'm loving your dolls! When I got 4 inches cut from my dreds I thought they weren't long enough to save for anything ... little did I know!

OH MY - what wonderful ladies you have created. I ADORE them. Are you selling them? Maybe show us how you made them if you won't sell them. Did I mention that I ADORE them?

I love your dolls. Each one seems to have a personality of her own. Isn't it wonderful to have this alternative since the quilting well is in hibernation now. Again they are beautiful. I love it that their dreds are real. WoW!
