It's been a few months since I'd done some stabbing!... After a quite a few hours (including tea breaks & cuddle breaks), here she is - Autumn Maiden. I finished her this afternoon. Funny, this doll ended up being taller and thinner than the other dolls I have made. The bark of the tree is made with different coloured brown wool and a little bit of mulberry silk which doesn't show up in the photo. I was inspired by crab apple tree outside the window with all the different coloured leaves on it. Even the doll's hair has Autumn colours on it (which also doesn't show up too well in the photo).
I hope she likes it. I'm sure she will - she is a sweet little girl. I love giving hand made gifts and knowing that in the home they're going to they will be loved.
Katie was off school today so Lou and her were playing together most of the day. That's how I got the doll finished in one afternoon (LOL).........
