Mary






















I call her Mary because I was listening to the haunting contralto of Mary Fahl of the group The October Project as I stitched this doll. The doll is very simple but she absolutely sparkles with gold sequins and a glitter finish over her face.






















I have been making little dolls for just over a year now. I am pleased with the progress I have made. It makes me want to keep on. Compare the Icicle Doll made last January (out of the same fabric) to today's effort. I hope that I can say as much this time next year.

Oh they are both wonderful, but I'm particularly fond of Mary, her colors are so very rich and beautiful.

I'm so glad you want to keep making dolls. Thank you, thank you for that lovely package you sent me! Your dolls are so charming.

Hi Inga what a disappointment about the show, but great to get another ticket. Lisette is very pretty, I love her colours. Is it just me but does Mary look a little sad? probably just me. Your icycle doll has such a great expression on her face too. Belinda
