I've even written a short story or two about the Fae Wood. That was in the day when I was taking Creative Writing at the University of Toronto at night school. It was my "I want to be a writer" stage. That stage soon passed despite the fact that I was told by two of my teachers that I was the new Alice Munro. Growing up in a small Ontario village did pay off after all:) Sadly, I am not a writer by temperament and all those rules of grammar ......eeeek! Worrying about all that just gave me a headache....LOL
Here is my finished Miranda.....
|Better hair day:)|
I'm going to get my son to take better pictures because mine are always blurry:) Perhaps I'm not squinting enough.
Her colour palette is rust, green and blue. I made the cape out of a blouse that I had that I have never worn. In fact I have no idea why I bought it....??? The cape looks great when you see it on her but in the picture it looks awful. I think I'll make her another one in wool maybe. I found a small basket that might be okay for her to carry. It's a rabbit:) I threw in some faux onions ...
I might make another doll like Miranda:) I enjoyed making her but I might rethink how I put the clothes on her form. Sometimes an idea looks good on paper and in your head but not in fabric.
Today I'm joining up with The Needle & Thread Network. Please go over and visit and see all the wonderful creations made by other Canadian bloggers.
