Weekend Worktable

Busy. busy trying to get some progress on a couple of projects. I've been working on a Red Riding Hood doll in the same style as Hansel and Gretel. People on Facebook have seen it but I haven't yet shared it here.
Since she's wearing a hood I took the opportunity to embroider it. 

 Love aqua and red together so Red's skirt is aqua.

A little more detail than Gretel's skirt.
I decided to put a wolf on the skirt. Here he just looks too much like a bear to me so I ripped his face off and started again.
Here is the final. I added the tongue to make him more friendly looking since these dolls are pretty cutsie. He's not exactly what I was going for but at least he looks like a wolf or maybe a dog so I'm going to deal with it and not make myself crazy about it.

Still have her blouse and underwear and cape, which will all have some embroidery on it. I also have a wolf doll to do so they are a set. Once she's done what other fairytale would you like to see?

Very sweet. The wolf is a great touch.

My granddaughter is in love with Elsa from Frozen:)

Your work is gorgeous and I love how intricate your work is. I found you through Mary Ann.

Bettina I thought about doing the H&G witch.

Mary Ann, I'm probably to only one who hasn't seen Frozen so I'll have to investigate.

Thanks so much Jo! Welcome to my blog.
