the planets are in line!

OMG! I FINALLY finished my challenge doll for the doll club. It was a mystical theme and we had to use a specific fabric in the doll - long story short - I made tiny birds from the fabric and have them on a tree. The tree is cloth and painted with acrylic. I named it "Mobius and his birds". I normally do not name my dolls, but this one just came to me. I just love the way the name Mobius sounds. I am SO happy with how he turned out - It will be at the sewing expo at the IX center in March with our doll club's display. It is my first original doll. The face is from a Julie McCullough pattern (the fisherman), but the rest was an idea my friend Mickey gave me - gotta love those 8 girls! creative!
Hope you enjoy the photos. (If you were wondering - Mobius was a German mathematician born the late 1700's... another long story.. hahaha)

Carolyn, I love, love, love this tree doll. You are so amazing - I'm not worthy (bow, bow, bow)!

I agree with Mary. Carolyn, you should send this picture to Art Doll Quarterly and put it in the display at High Road Gallery in Columbus.
