Have you ever made something you'd like to keep?

Here she is my little art doll. I've spent a lovely day making her for Britta Ankenbauer who lives in Germany. I've got quite fond of her and it will be hard to part with her. However its not my doll but Britta's so off it will go to her on Monday. I hope she likes her. This is the back. She just sort of grew, another one of those project where I just let my muse have her way. Don't know whether others are like me when I plan a project it rarely takes off as planned somewhere along the line they develope a life of their own. When I have tried to dictate the way it should go it never turns out right. Nowadays I just give in and let my Muse have her own way.
Doesn't show too well because I scanned her rather than took a photo and my scanner is creating rather dark images. She looks blue where in fact she's more a seagreen. I created the fabric on my embellisher then spent the rest of the day beading her. The art doll swap is with the Stitchedtextile group.

What a great doll! Beautiful beading and details! I can well understand that it's hard to part from her!

She is lovely! I was reluctant too, to part with one of my A.T.C.'s that I had based on Borough Market's fish stall.

She's beautiful Annette, no wonder you don't want to see her go.
