Travelling Doll Project - Miss Rosie Pimlico

Last time I told how I signed up for ADO's Travelling Doll Project. I scultped the beginning of a doll, Nadia, then sent her off with her journal on her first of four more stops around the world.

After Nadia went on her journey to find herself, I received in the mail Miss Rosie Pimlico, of Wales. Definitely a girl with an eye for the finer things in life. Miss Rosie was started by Yve Hooson, a wonderful cloth doll maker.

Miss Rosie and I chatted for awhile, and I quickly realized she had a love for beads & accessories. So I fitted her in a beaded top with extra poofy sleeves, stitched up a little purse, and then sent her on to her next stop in California. I should note that when she came from Wales, she couldn't do without hot tea in fine china every morning - but by the time she left the South, this girl was a sweet tea addict! Ahh, another convert. :)

This was the first time I have ever worked on a doll of this size, and while it was fun, boy - was I stressed! For more pictures and the complete story of Miss Rosie's time in Georgia, visit the official Traveling Doll Project blog, and my report on this round of the TDP.

Next time, I'll report on round 3 - my adventures with Aiden, the dragon child!

It is brilliant what you are doing with the wrists(dolls), the clothes that it did to him to miss Rosie goes very much with his character, I expect it irritates it finishes do finally of th project.
