Surprise, RAK #47, More of Eve, On the Road Again

I received the loveliest surprised the mail from Rosey of Ishkabibble blog. A sweet crocheted bookmark in my very favorite color - BLUE! Thank you so very much, Rosey. What a nice surprise to receive in the mail!!



RAK #47 was given to a dear friend, Evelyn. She and her husband were such good friends of my mother and step-father.....and were there for me through all the struggles with their illnesses. They have remained close friends.  Evelyn has admired my little ladies - so gave Consuelo to her yesterday - her very favorite.



In my last post, I shared my sculpting adventure in Utah with Jack Johnston and Apryl Jensen. Last post I showed you the steps to sculpt the head for it's first baking. Since then, I named the lady "Eve" since she's my first sculpted doll and Eve was the first woman. I thought it appropriate and fitting.

Sculpted Shoes with buckles and bows (They will be painted after I decide on her costume)


Little ribbons added to the bows

I still have to decide on Eve's dress/costume and hair style. I'll post as soon as she's complete, though it will be a few weeks because....

I'm "On the Road Again"..... driving to Pennsylvania to help DD with DGS while SIL is traveling. YIPPEE! More hugs and squeals from DGS. He's such a cutie!! DH will stay home and do what needs to be done to prepare the farm for winter weather.

Until I return, have a wonderful week full of love, laughter and lots of stitching.
