Frida Almost Done

but not quite.

This Frida Kahlo doll was made from spun cotton over wire. She has a muslin face, a mohair wig, antique milliners flowers in her hair, and hand sewn clothes.

She still needs her spun cotton heart attached to the outside of her body so she can hold it.

She still needs some work to clean up loose threads and to tidy up/finish her shawl.

She still needs some refining of her basic features.

I just posted her now because I was afraid that, if I didn't, I would not post her at all.

She was a bit outside of my normal comfort zone.

A little anxiety can be a good thing, right? RIGHT??

Until next time, here's to trying new things and being brave enough to post them!

  6. A time seems to come in every woman’s life when she gets an uncontrollable urge to give her home a thorough cleaning. Many women still follow the old-fashioned spring and fall schedule. Spring cleaning was unavoidable many years ago when coal stoves were used all winter, coating everything with a thick, greasy dirt.
