I have been working hard on my craft since 2004, and I think I have a skill level that shows in my work. I am the do over queen and there are many heads without bodies to suggest that these mistakes drive me to the perfect end. The finished doll always seems to lead to the next doll, one is born out of another. This is why I love making dolls. It is the air I breathe and pretty much defines me. I am a doll maker.

This may sound strange but these bodiless heads and headless bodies speak to me. I have control over the parts and pieces individually, but the position involved in the connection is revealed at the moment the pieces touch one another for the first time. The head moves me to sew it in a certain pose, same with the hands and arms. The whole doll forms itself to be expressive according to its idea of itself.

Somewhere in Lower Alabama

One of Rosie's road trips was just a few miles away from home. We visited Fairhope, Alabama. Fairhope is a coastal town on Mobile Bay with many fine restaurants, galleries and shops to enjoy.


We visited the Fairhope Pier with its rose garden and great view.

Wonderful day. Much more to come, so keep coming back. . . . . . . . .

I am getting use to the funny looks I get while photographing, but Rosie and I don't care. We just carry on like we are the only ones around, laughing and joking. We have too much fun.
