Auction doll so far

HI! Everyone,
Here is the Auction 2009 doll so far. I decided to have one hand to her face and the other to her belly like she just heard a great joke. I gave her a lip ring and a little hook on the inside of her right hand. When posed she has her hand to her mouth and when unposed she'll look like she has a lip ring. The left hand will have a snap or velcro on her clothing to hold that hand in place. She has wire in her arms and fingers, so they are posable also.

So far she is mum about what she wants to wear. My friend Leslie suggested I take her to a quilt shop and maybe she'll see something she likes there! Not a bad idea. I need to go to the fabric shop and look at the Hoffman Challenge fabrics anyway!

Got to mend the hubby's work pants! Can't get work done with no work pants!! It is an absolutely beautiful day here in Grants Pass. The sun is out. It is warm. The daffodils are starting to wilt and the roses are putting on new growth! I can't wait to see them blooming again! I can hear lawnmowers all over the neighborhood.

Hugs and sunshine,

Another One!

Here's another ad in the same issue of Workbasket December 1958.

Gee, was Cindy popular name in the late 50's?! I once had at least 4 Cindy's in one class, might have been 5 of us.

Dolls and stuff,

This is too funny!

HI! Everyone,
Check out this ad in a December 1958 Workbasket magazine. I found it in a box of old magazines. For those who don't know......I am a "Cindy Lou". I was born in August of 1957. I just found this too funny.
Dolly things,

Bald Doll

HI! Everyone,
Here are a few pics of the Breast Health Auction 2009 doll. I was trying to get a head that could be bald. I think I got it! When I did the needlesculpting I went in through an open seam at the lower back of the head. As I sculpted the stuffing was pulled into the inside of the head. When I finished needlesculpting I re-stuffed the back of the head and stitched the opening closed. I am going to make her a few wigs. At least one beady one and one yarn hair one.

Hope you are all having fun and enjoying life!
