Playng with Dolls, and a Field Trip!

here is what kept me busy yesterday....
two clay-over-cloth dolls!

the skinny one on the left is "Arabella"
she is approx. 13" tall ~
I wanted to make her more pale than my usual dolls...
she has raw flax for hair & painted features...

The more 'plump' doll on the right is "Peg"
she is approx. 14" tall ~
She is a new design for me & I like her!
her hair is hand-dyed wool roving and she has a little needlepunched pocket
pinned to the front of her little shirt...
I'll tuck in some dried tansy~

Going on a field trip today with Robin (millstonemercantile)
we are headed into Roanoke (or thereabouts) to a shop named
Old Mill Primitives
I can't wait to see it, as Robin says it is a great shop full of all kinds of goode things!!
I'm hoping to meet up with my friend
Pam Gracia from Soft in the Head
(her blog is on my bloglist)
Pam & I have been online friends for years and finally got to meet
at last year's Ghoultide Gatherings show in MI...

so, despite the rainy weather,
I'll be having a fun day!!

Wishing you all warm spring showers to chase away the pollen!!!
Blessings from the Farm,
