    Comfort Doll 2

    Here is the second installment of my comfort doll making adventure for Pat's project. I made the pattern, so maybe some tweeking is in order. And I guess the out come of the doll depends on 'state of mind' at the time of creation. You can probably tell from this doll that I was having a slightly unusual creative day. LOL. In fact, I stitched her while waiting the outcome of jury selection. HMMMMMM.

    Oh well, I believe that if you have love in your heart that you are able to find beauty in all things. And I think she's lovely, albeit unusual. And I have no doubts that she will find someone to love her. It's not her fault that she doesn't photograph well. LOL.

    And for those of you who might not know what I'm talking about, you can find more information here at Pat's Comfort Doll Project post. And see photos of other dolls here at the Flickr photo pool.

    This is an on-going project so you still have time to decide. If you DO decided to make a doll and send it to Pat, this is the link to her mailing address.

    Well, time to do the 'domestic goddess' thing (aka housework). 'Till next time....Happy Needling!

    I think she is just lovely too! I especially like the crazy quilt look of course. You could call here a crazy lady doll.

    I will follow the link and see what all you are doing here!

    Have a great weekend, Cat

    I love your doll! You've made two while I'm still putting off tackling something different from my comfort zone. I did find a dotee doll tutorial, though, and I think I can handle that one!

    Hi Gerry,
    What a beautiful comfort doll--so soft-looking and lovely!

    Here's to Southpaws!!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog--I reworked the piece quite a bit today--it just didn't feel finished. If you get a chance, check out the new version on my blog and tell me which one you like better.

    I hope you have a great start to the week.

    I was really worried about the fibers/fuzzies. I might just use them again! Thank you.
