Popping in briefly

Hello everybody. Just got back from India and I am popping in briefly as I am away again tomorrow. Before I go I just wanted to share with you Ivy. Like many of us I get inspiration from nature very often. While I was in the garden one day I was admiring the shapes and shades of various leaves when in popped a doll into my head, very weird! I thought the shape of an ivy leaf will make a wonderful head for a doll so here is Ivy. I made her hands also the shape of Ivy. She is a table doll for CIFI. Hope someone will like her enough to want her. I did not have time to make a proper perch for her so whoever gets her please feel free to make another one if you so wish. As always Choc had to approve before I could put her picture up.  I shall visit your blogs when I get back and get my house in order. My house has been a mess since the kitchen is being remodelled hence I have been going around like a headless chicken around the house for the past few weeks. Well those who are travelling do have a safe journey
See you soon. A bientôt
