Head on but no where near finished

I have been working on this doll for a few days, One Jill didnt have a pattern for but said I could adapt her pocket Angel pattern which I have done. I love the concept and will work on her she needs a hat and lots of embellishment. A dear friend gave me bags of material from a friend of hers who was downsizing and this bit of furnishing brocade was in it and was very welcome.
I finally saw Millie today and Gaby who only has about 4 weeks before she has the baby, I needed to ask what else she wanted on the cot blanket, bows in the corners.
A lovely day, so nice to see some sun and for it to be a bit warmer.
Both John and I feel a lot better.

I think she looks great as she is. Life for girls is very different here in Fiji. They are taught from a very young age to help in the kitchen while the boys play. Gradually some families are changing that culture. My 13 year old grand-daughter (actually niece's daughter but she calls me Grandma) does a lot of the cooking for tje family of eight of us at present. She accompanies me down town too which is lovely.

I love this doll...especially the red hair!!! The fabric used for the body is great too.
