My new doll blank is getting impatient…
…she was cut from the branch of a special tree…
…Dogwood flowers are beautiful, and so is the slightly pinkish wood.
Floradora would like me to carve her a nose so she can sniff her natal flower!
…she is tired of being no longer tree, but not yet doll!
A-w-w another new life on the way.
It has been an odd time, And not very conducive to carving, but I think I am feeling like I can begin soon!
I will so look forward to Floradora’s emergence as the days continue on. Would she be coming from one of your own trees or a friend’s tree? She will no doubt be a special doll. I think it’s so cool that she will/may have a pinkish glow to her wood.
The wood is from the tree of a friend…it is very hard wood and will likely be slow going, but i have to start somewhere!
Floradora, we look forward to welcoming you to the world. So many adventures await you in the Quimper Cupboard!
A new doll does perk us right up! I am happy to have a positive project to work on!
P.S. Just remembered…I have an antique Floradora doll! she is larger then HItty (about 9″) with bisque head and
composition body. She can be Quimper Floradora’s distant cousin!!
I have a Floradora doll body too! I like the idea of distant cousins!
What a lovely tree, and Floradora is already showing her high energy and joie de vivre! I look forward to seeing her unfold in all her glory!
For some reason, all the Quimper Hittys love climbing trees…I guess it is not that surprising. The pretty pink dogwood tree just gave me a little nudge and suggested I start carving!
Oh how exciting a new doll in progress and a special one at that! I will look forward to seeing her come to fruition… I have one who is still sitting waiting oh so patiently, I just can’t do faces, so she will continue to sit and wait awhile.
yay for the dogwood tree in bloom! I hope you will enjoy freeing Floradora from her blocks of wood.
