My husband is still sleeping (!) which gives me some time to write a little about my progress on my new project. Yet there is not much to tell, because one idea chases the other and I can't really decide what to do with this kit. The shape is really bothering me. Each time I try something, I notice how many other pieces I will need to cut/change to end up with something totally different than the initial kit, so that it can't be recognized anymore. I do not want that. I want to keep the main shape by making it modern, which is a challenge by itself.
The first fitting went very well. Everything seems to fit perfectly and it is actually bigger than I have imagined.
Now I keep staring at it trying to decide what it is going to be. The sun is shining today after days of bad weather and it makes me feel really good this Saturday morning, no rush, just chill. Nevertheless, there are too many decisions to take: Light color? Dark color? Wood or paint? Where to put windows, doors? Flooring... naah too early! Wiring? Hmpf... I need to eat first...
But before I eat something and grab a cup of coffee, I would like to present you Lilly. She's the first (14cm) doll I have ever made so please be kind to her :) Her face is a little weird due to the wide eyes that are too far from each other - had I mentioned she has no ears? The head is too big for her body, but this was somehow intentional, as at the beginning I wanted to create some fairy tale unrealistic face with blue hair, but changed my mind in the process. Next time it will be better.
Have a wonderful Saturday!
