Comfort Me Doll - Finished

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed making this doll. I can see why everyone in the Beaded Journal Project is getting so much out of their monthly pages. I am itching to do more beaded embroidery and already have 2 projects floating about in my head.

I put her aside for a while to work on the fairy shoes but at the weekend I finally had time to finish her. Sorry she is on her side, sometimes the camera rotates my pics, sometimes it does not!

It is nearly a month since I posted my first comfort doll to Pam, but she has not arrived yet and I am getting a little worried about her. If she doesn't make it to Pam, I will have to accept that a higher force has a different destiny planned for my little doll. I just hope that she puts a smile on someone’s face. Another package that I sent overseas may also have gone astray. 2 months ago I sent some chenille needles and silk ribbons to India, they too are yet to arrive.

Happy Stitching

Beautiful doll! Isn't it a wonderful (and FUN) project? I'm sure she will put a smile in someone's heart and on their face.

She turned out exquisitely. I bet that first comfort doll you made turns up shortly. Sometimes there is no explaining what holds up international mail.

I hope you got as much pleasure in making this doll as the person who receives it will . . .

Your embrodered Comfort Doll is goregeous - a real inspiration.

Oh, I so love this. I don't know if I'd have the patience, but then, maybe if I didn't see the end product as the point, but the process as the point, I might attempt one that complicated. (also known as yobs table work)
