Elaine's Creative Works blog -- a wooden thread spool and tiny sewing machine that are hanging from her arm on the left with the hand-felted blue beads (purchased from Beth Moore Beads on Etsy). The other arm holds a vintage wooden tile with a basket quilt block printed on it. Her beads are Czech glass seed beads, some of which surround the Shisha mirror on her chest. Her hair is done with a peyote stitch to which I added a yellow ruffle stitch and a red Swarovski crystal. Her face is hand-embroidered with many tiny stitches. She never goes anywhere without her safety pins, so additional embellishments are tiny gold pins adorned with seed beads and a measuring tape. Once again, this spirit doll has sage inside with her stuffing to add to the positive, healing energy of the crystal. The usual pouch of polished river rocks for weight is in her base so she stands firmly. She is one of my larger dolls measuring about 10 1/2". The photo will enlarge if clicked once, or click twice for additional enlargement.
PS: Some have asked if my dolls are for sale, and although it's difficult to think about letting them go, I now realize I can't keep them all. It's hard to make decisions about all of this, especially pricing, but I'm working on setting up an Etsy shop. It should be fun!
