The Very Slow Doll Maker

This one has been on the go for a very long time! I blame teaching full time and whilst I know that is a significant factor - time management, procrastination and lack of organisation also feature highly. A common enough pattern of behaviour but one I am yet to master.
Anyway this one is paper clay over cloth - my first attempt and clothes made from my very own dyed material, silk and wool. Lovely backdrop! The light box having fallen victim to previous stated patterns of behaviour. Tee hee!!
Oh and not even finished!

The unwrapping this morning revealed a delight of colour!

Afternoon Play

Loving the long weekend. Enough of a break to unshackle my mind from the 23 other minds that are my usual concern.
Today, however I have played!
The bag of treasures ready to be dyed that have been sitting for some months were hauled out.

The fire was started and stoked, a pot set upon to boil.

Leaves were gathered and some railway treasures, our farm luckily has an old rail track next door.
Cloth was bundled.

And placed to stew and wait!

The waiting will be my undoing, I can manage the next morning but no more as yet.
