Continuing Progress on Doll-in-Progress

I continue to make progress on this doll, although not FAST progress as I've been sick lately (cellulitis!!) and I've also spent time decluttering (yay!!!!) and working on my art journals.

I am happy with her face now, having enlarged her eyes from the ones I first gave her. She is a child; I achieved that desired result from making her eyes larger. It could be that her eyes should have been a bit lower on her face, but she's an older child rather than a younger one, so I can get away with her eyes being a little high.

My next decision will involve what kind of hair she should have. I'm sure I have a doll wig that would fit her, but I'll have to try some and see what it looks like. And of course, I'll have to make the arms and legs which are not my favorite parts to make. But they won't take long, so I should just "bite the bullet" and make them as soon as I can.
I probably mentioned in my earlier
post that this doll has a cloth body/head in one piece with the molded face made from Paper Clay and  cloth over that. Stay tuned. I'll try to get this doll finished soon.

Second Blog Book!

 I'm working toward the point of having my blog printed one year at a time, but my first book ended in July, 2011 and covered a couple of years. So this one begins in July 2011 and goes to Oct 2012. Next year's will begin in Oct 2012 and will go to Dec 31, 2013. From then on, they will begin on Jan1 and go to Dec 31 of the same year.
The service I use is called Blog2Print and it is not the only one out there. The book costs about $30 in soft cover/color, less in black and white; hardback is also available and costs more, of course. I didn't do much  research before I ordered the first book, so I'm not sure if this  company has the best price or not. I WILL say they have great software,  their process is totally easy, and I've been very satisfied with the results, and that is why I went to them again.
I find this an easy way to have a printed record of my doll-making experiences.
