Strange dolls

Every so often I love making strange looking dolls and these are a couple I have made. Sometimes I wonder what exactly makes me tick!
Not much to report, we have again been busy, Adelaide in the heat yesterday, and then some lovely rain overnight and this morning.
I am wrapping presents and hope I have stuff for most of those I give them to.
Yesterday some were delivered and tonight and tomorrow some more then I can clear the tables a bit and think about what I need to take for the Island. Usually I buy myself a small present, usually from The Thread Studio but not this year as money has suddenly got very tight.
John tells me we have been selling our milk for less than the cost of production for the last 6 months. That just cannot go on. We have to buy hay and grain to feed the cows and at this time of the year no one will sell unless they are paid up front.
We have had lots of enquiries for ponies but no actual sales there either.
At least we have had rain so the dams are full which is better than last year but of course the downside of that is that the dry feed has gone down! I am afraid farming is a very hand to mouth exercise in Australia, droughts, floods or fires and governments, the four curses of farmers.

I would say your unique dolls represent your wonderful sense of creativity Penny.
Farmers here in the U.S. have their problems as should not be that way!
Going away to an island sounds it near or far?

Wanda got the words out before I did--for sure, that creativity is what makes you tick.
And she's right about farmer out here in the U.S., too.

And I, too, wonder about that island.Even the word "island" evokes daydreams.

Somehow all I can think of is alien girls when I look at the dolls, lol.
