An "InVESTment"

Who would think that design of a small lined vest would be so complicated?  Who would think that after several practice pieces the 'investee' would want to tear these bits into scraps and throw them all away?  Who would think that after 'three strikes and you're out' a successful prototype would be accomplished?

Meanwhile someone is waiting patiently, with a slight smile on her face, as her creator goes through all sorts of gyrations.  And we haven't even gotten to the shoes yet!

  1. You should tell that one it's not kind to laugh at someone else's mental distress!

  2. Oh! That little lady is not laughing at all. I think she has that smile of gratitude and knowing that miss seamstress is determined to create the perfect robe.

  3. At least she's warm and decently covered!

  4. well...at least you stuck at it!

    I think that many would have deposited it to "file 13" :-)

  5. Hi Penny...

    I have been following your blog for awile and have to tell you how much I enjoy your dolls and their development. I am a doll lover,and yours definitley speak to me in so many ways. Expression, their size and the beautifully executed clothing and fun aspects like shoes, purses and other accessories. THANK YOU for all of your shared stories, the sweet expressions that talk to us, and for being a determined and very talented stitcher committed to telling the stories your heart wants to share through dolls we can all relate to.
