How I spend a Rainy Day...

Dolls! Dolls! Dolls!
Dolls for Sale! Dolls for Sale!

My partner went to a local auction yesterday, and came back with boxes of porcelain dolls from a collection. So this morning, while the rain fell wildly and the wind blew, I washed little porcelain and bisque faces and hands and tidied ribbons and bows.

Now the sun is trying to peep out, through a haze of steam rising from wet roads and pavement. I can still hear a low rumble of faraway thunder. Green things outside are startlingly bright.

Here's a great example of what a bit of fiber, some time and some talent will do. Barbara's second felted project, a delightful tapestry based on an old homeplace, is charming! I love it when a customer comes around with something she has made. Barbara is so enthusiastic; she has plans for lots more lovely creations!
