It is nearly 4 AM and I have 3 of the 8 arms & legs ladder-stitched closed where I stuffed them. The dresses & nighties are done except for the snaps and I have to wait for the bodies to be finished for the final fitting. The clothes pattern could have been a bit more generous on size.

My final hurdle with these dolls is going to be the hair. I have to wrap yarn around a 10×14 inch piece of cardboard until it is full, and then carefully slip it off and sew the yarn to a “wig” piece of fabric. Then I must slip stitch the wig to the doll. I’d be happy if I could just jump straight to slip stitching. I can see a lot of my own hair being pulled out by the end of this escapade. I’ll let you know how it goes.

I’m off for either coffee or sleep….
