Sidetracked by a skirt!

Some of you might remember me mentioning dabbling with doll making on my last post. I showed my first attempt with the devil doll. Well, while working on my teapots and luminarias
I needed a little change of pace so I started a new doll. A skeleton doll I thought, simple enough.
Then I started playing with clothes patterns and settled on a Gothic 1890's clothing that I could have some fun with. Of course that meant a bustle so I tackled that feat with some minot adjustments.
On I went with the jacket, that's were the trouble started. I knew I was in trouble when I started dreaming about simplifying the pleating, seams, ruffles etc.
I worked out most of the kinks but still along way to goes! I was planning on starting the skirt and said, " wait a minute I gotta get back to my painting. It's been a two day detour!"
So back to the brush for awhile and the skirt goes on the back burner for now, but keep a look out she may return at any moment.

Don't forget the Hootenanny at STJ

Just a note to remind everyone, and a sneak peek at my offerings for the SpookyTimeJingles Hootenanny update tonight! From the sneak peak from the other great Artist at STJ it looks like a banner event.
The bunnies are all decked out for your Easter celebration.
So set your clocks for 11:59 PM so you can get the best choices as things go fast at a first come first serve basis. Good Luck all!

Bunny Update and Shenanigans!

When they began to begat!

Look what the bunnies where up to! As bunnies do, they begat..LOL. I like the new bunnies and can't wait to add the paint. They'll have to wait thought, cause this bunnies gonna be hopping all night in order to have Ma and Pa ready for STJ Hootinany on the 13th.

Meanwhile back in Halloween town I've got a couple more pieces in the works. Two luminarias, a cat, a JOL with hat and a very angry teapot. They-re one of the reasons I've fallen behind on the rabbits. I'll be glad when I can be Halloween-ing round the clock after Easter.

The last note is about some new directions. Well actually this is a new attempt at an old idea. Back when I started, dabbled in doll making but was not happy with the results or process. After working on my regular figures and thinking out a new doll process I'll be making some now and then. Any way here was my first attempt.

And now I gotta get a hoppin!
