What I am working on...


It's been a while since I made a new doll. Frankly, it's the heat that's been keeping me. It is so hot in our house these days. We have no air conditioning, and when the temperatures get into the hundreds I don't feel much desire to touch wool batting.

We are a tough bunch. Only at night we run a couple of fans to draw some cold air into the house. Living at high altitude, at least we have the luxury of things cooling down at night. So they say...Maybe I should work nights? But when is one supposed to get any sleep? Anyways. Yesterday I finally finished this sweet little doll I named Nora. What do you think?

I love her auburn tresses. She looks like quite the wild child. Her green eyes sparkle with a bit of mischief...It took me a while to find a name for her. But then I remembered a little girl named Nora I met at a barbecue last summer. My daughter was quite impressed with her since she never put on clothes the whole afternoon...Nora doesn't like clothes!

My doll is a bit more bashful. =)

She's adorable. And I would DIE without air conditioning. At least where I live....
