Dotee Doll From A Friend
My friend and neighbour, JR, had a surprise for me yesterday. I knew ahead of time that she had made something for me. Since JR is a mosaics artist, I thought whatever she had for me might involve bits of broken glass and china. JR makes the most incredibly intricate mosaic pictures which, in my view, must require an infinite amount of patience to create.
But JR has been reading my blog and with all my posts about Dotee dolls, it looks like the Dotee bug has bit her too. This doll has been cleverly recycled from an old wine bag. There is a lot of detail which I am unable to show you in the photo. It can only be appreciated upon close up, in person, inspection. The facial features are all hand embroidered on a satin type of fabric and because of the sheen, the photo just doesn't do it justice.
I love handmade things and the thoughtfulness and creativity that goes into them. Thank you so much, JR.
