Wednesday's Worktable

Trying to remember to blog more and since I am working on something I can share here we go!
A headless and hand less WIP. I'm not going to tell you what she is until she's futher along. I have a ton of beading to do on this one plus she will have furniture too. She may not actually be done by the end of the month. I have no deadline set for her so she's done when she's done. Sorry for her naked bottom I took this before I made her bloomers. The colors and detail are better in this photo, so hey we all have bottoms that are naked sometimes...right?
Here's a shot with her bloomers. You can see my messy worktable. I have only about the space you see to work in since my new sewing machine shares this table and the right side is covered in patterns, felt and fabric. Unfortunately I don't have a dedicated sewing table and I have to sew standing up slightly hunched over. No complaints, I'm just happy to have this awesome machine. I'm gaining a lot on confidence on it which makes me feel good. And feeling good is awesome!

Underneath and behind the doll above you may see some sketches. Those are for the other doll I'm making this month. It's another doll that I can share and I'll show more once I get started.
These are the yummy colors of felt That I'll be using on the 2nd doll. I'm super excited about this project and can't wait to share when I can.

What's on your worktable this week?

Love seeing works in progress. I love sharing them too but I think people get aggravated because sometimes they never see the finished product. Oops.

So glad you have the sewing machine. That should cut down on some of the hand sewing you have to do with each doll.

What's on my work desk? Hmmm. Some paperclay hands to go with the paperclay head, a little ceramic woodland house that I'm making for myself, a little ceramic girl that I'm making for myself and a TON of remembrance ornaments and personalized ornaments that I made for myself, family members and an Ohio friend. I won't discuss the number of WIPs on my shelves. :)

Looks interesting but I have no idea where you are heading. I'm working on a very very old bunch of UFO's. Ten 16 inch mice. The bodies were made and stuffed and now I have to attached arms and ears and dress them.
