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.

"Winter Chills - 1"

This doll is ready for the chill of winter with his top hat and scarf.The head is constructed out of four pieces, this allows me more room for stuffing. This is also the first time I put the skin fabric on in 2 halves. A front and a back.
This gave me a finished back to the doll's head.
I am planning to put 'Winter Chills - 1' on an Ebay auction soon. So hopefully you all will want him for Christmas.
