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.

Dominatress???

I had started this doll a couple of months ago and had to set her aside. I couldn't grasp the direction to take her.The only thing that worked on her was the bustier or corset that I had made. Her head did not even work. So she was sent to the closet . . .But with some encouraging words and a wine bottle to form the shape of the skirt, I have a new direction. What she seems to be telling me is she is the dominant force here and I will do what she wants, because she will not go back in to the closet. . . . Do I dare add a whip?

I like your sense of humor! It is wonderful. Love the the dress and the legs! I think it can be a headless doll as she already has such character.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas!
