Intuition versus reality

I knew what I wanted to do.  I knew I wanted to rescue a design, rework it and make it become something else.    I began knowing that I would change the arms of the earlier design.  Sounds easy huh? Well, many hours, several designs, attaching and detaching as I went along and getting a huge case of the 'frustrations' and I was still working on arms.

Finally, in a fit of peak I decided to not use arms at all.  So there!  Take that you hard-to-deal with piece of cloth and stuffing!!  Of course she looked bare and barren.  It finally came to me -- since she is supposed to be a 'spirit' of sorts why not give her wings.

At this point I'm sure the poor thing was getting a bit worn.  I'm not sure she's learned to use her wings because there she sits.  Perhaps she's wondering how she can 'seek beauty' while sitting on the shelf of my studio.

"Cease trying to work everything out with your minds.  It will get you nowhere.  Live by intuition and inspiration and let your whole life be revelation." - Eileen Caddy


  1. She's probably feeling as weary as you after all your toils together!

  2. :) Love the wings!

    “If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.”
    ― Coco Chanel

  3. I also love her wings, she looks happy not to be flying. Very peaceful. I also LOVE the star on her head!

  4. I like that, who needs arms when they have wings.

  5. Well, dolls seem to speak to us when they are born. Is she an angel? Does she secretly desire to be a Flutterby? For sure she is unique and one of a kind.
