WOYWW 3 Nov. 2010 – doll, stamps and a mess


Hope you are all having a happy and productive WOYWW – I have been so busy trying to work on the doll for DD with my MIL that I had to shelve the skull project. I know it will require some concentrated time to assemble and all I have time for at the moment is short bursts, so I am working on another little thing and will get back to te card house next week when the in-laws are gone. I had hoped to crop this weekend but alas it is not to be so.

The designer says the following on her site, regarding the doll:

“If you are a beginner, don’t try this.
Only people who have spirit of endeavor and improvement can make her.”

I’m not sure about the “spirit of endeavor and improvement” but progress has been made.

As to the other little project? Stampotique, of course:

Sorry it’s all a bit dark but it’s that time of year.

  4. WOW MA.. that doll looks like a heap of work! I would have read the description and avoided it like the plague so kudos to you for giving it a go! Annette #5

  5. Wow. She’s coming along perfectly if you ask me. Am terrified to meet some of your commenters who say the boobs are realistic…’s probably 30 years since I was that, erm…pert!
    Sorry about the crop – I was raring to go too, we’ll see if we can’t reconvene, I seem to have a shed load to get done!

  6. Your doll is going to be quite large. I don’t see her head anywhere. Cool Halloween stamps, and I love all your markers. Happy late WOYWW.

  7. Great doll you are creating there. Wish you could make my figure look like that LOL. Would love to see the finished project. Maybe we should get together and sing and craft bet both families would run away from home. Ha Ha

  8. ohooooo for a moment, I thought, agh! Naked body…so glad it wasn’t,fab crafty makes, Happy Woyww!

  9. I wouldn’t mind a figure like that LOL If there is space on your desk it is not technically messy!!!

  10. and here’s a question for you…

    If you had to pick your 3 favorite Stampotique stamps which would they be?

  11. No way I would try that doll. I’m sure yours will be amazing though.
    Drooling over all those copics and Stampotique stamps. Love what you do!

    Happy WOYWW!

  14. The doll is looking amazing!
    There’d be no point in me trying to make anything like that because I’m sewing machine challenged……I can’t sew a straight line to save me life, but it looks like you’re got to grips with the directions.

  27. Cool – I love Stampotique but can’t quite justify the price of their stamps, it always makes me suck my breath in and think of full sheets!!! ROFL. I look forward to seeing how the finished doll looks!

  30. the stampotique project looks more fun, dont think i would have the patience for all that stitching. It is looking very good though. caroline #16

  31. Oh, you’ve got that Stampotique skull block – I really wanted that (maybe now Halloween is done, it will come back in stock, lol) Your desk looks great today, and good luck with your “body”!!

  32. The doll is forming nicely! It would be way too ambitious for me, can’t wait to see the end result 🙂 Christine #7

  34. oh doll looks great,love the stamps you have on your desk too hugs cheryl xxxxxxxx

  35. That torso is very shapely.. keep up the endeavour!

  36. That doll is amazing. I think you are doing it great. Love the “boobs.” Very realistic. As for the mess on your desk, I can still see room and that’s what Julia would say makes it a very clean desk! Don’t forget to show the skull when you pick it up, again. Happy WOYWW from #1.
