New Project

As some of you know I have a chronic illness that at times puts me in bed in extreme pain and other times gives me pain that while difficult is bearable, if I can focus on something else. I usually read book after book but found myself with nothing to read so decided to start a project I had only been sort of thinking about but didn't think I'd really do.

The combination of being bored, in pain, needing to focus on something, anything, pushed me to start a new doll since I could do it while laying in bed.

Let me say that I'm not thrilled about showing pics of my bed but that's where I was and I was already taking pics of my dog anyway. So yeah the things you do when bored and confined.
She's a doll of Freida Kahlo.
Lita thinks photos are overrated.

I know I haven't posted in quite a few days so I'm here and getting back on my feet. Freida is almost complete now. She just needs some minor details then I can show her to you probably early next week. I should be back to normal by Monday.

She's looking great so far!

I have been thinking about you!
I noticed there weren't any posts from you lately and I was worried.
If I didn't see anything by tomorrow morning, I was going to try emailing you!
I wish I had a magic potion to take away your pain and suffering.
I'm sending you happy and positive thoughts. Get to feeling better my friend!

That sucks, Jen. I really hope you get some relief from the pain and know that I'm thinking about you. Great start on the doll, by the way!

I hope you are feeling better now.
Your Fris is looking beautiful.
Have a nice Sunday!

Frieda is wonderful, and I'm glad you're getting past this bad spot again. I've been thinking about you.

I hope you are feeling better! I love your Frida (I have a soft spot for her in my heart, since she suffered much and kept on creating). I LOVE your little dog. :) Can't wait to see the finished doll! xox - Pam
