Struggling

I have this doll in the works and I am struggling with her. Sometimes you just can't get things right. So I have to redo the head. Hope I can finish her before Christmas ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. I can’t offer any practical help Shashi, but I can say the left-hand side of her face (as I look at the screen) is beautiful. I’m sure you will get her just right soon and she will be just as gorgeous as all your other dolls. I look forward to seeing her in all her glory.

    I loved the comment you left on my blog today (thank you). Your mention of the sarees your mum wore to parties sparked a memory. Back in the 1960s I worked for a clothing manufacturer in the East End of London, during lunch breaks the girls I worked with introduced me to the sights and sounds of London. Being a country girl it was all new and exciting to me but one of my enduring memories is of the amazing sarees available in some of the shops. I had no experience at all of any culture other than my own, so I was amazed by the exotic colours and wonderful materials.

  2. I don’t think there was anything you couldn’t buy Shashi the areas around Spitalfields and Brick Lane were a veritable Aladdin’s Cave. Of course, this would have been towards the end of the 60s going into the 70s. It was an exciting time for a girl born and raised on a farm – no wonder my parents were worried for me. :-)

  3. I know what you mean Shashi. Sometimes a doll doesn't want to co-operate :)
