Why Won't You Finish Us?

They just sit on the work table and wonder. It makes me feel sort of mean that I don't have an answer for them.

To say, "I'll finish you when I get around to it" sounds so callous. But, really, that is the answer. I just have not had any spare time this week.


I did a lot of different styles this time. I planned the one that is similar to a Queen Anne and the one on the far left. The remainder were done without sketches, just to see what would happen.

The blank faced ones will have painted features and will be a canvas for the finish that I am still trying to perfect.

Until next week, happy completion.



  1. don't let them get you don't! The real answer to why you don't finish them is because THEY are not ready to be who they are going to be yet! When they fully reveal themselves you won't be able to stop yourself from finishing them!

    Isn't funny how inanimate objects always want US to take responsibility for their fate? The nerve!! :)

  2. Adore your work!!!!
    Redneck Junkers

  3. Poor souls! LOL Can't wait to see what you do with these little things.


  4. I have a few of those little boogers looking at me too. Isn't it funny how they talk to us?

    I love all of them, and it will be exciting to see them when they are ready to be finished.


  5. I'm so much the same way.... I could show you endless dolls that I have just left "hanging" Poor things... but what can you do if they aren't ready?

    I'll be very happy to see any of them finished!

  6. Look all those heads! Amazing. They will certainly speak to you to let you know who they want to be!

    I am anxious for you to join Dixie's workshop too! :-) it is so much fun!
