School is back in session :O) :O) :O)

Don't get me wrong...I love my daughter dearly! I'm just a bit tired of the "Mamma, I'm sooo bored! There' nothing fun left to do..." that I've been getting for the last two weeks. Rachel is delighted that she got the teacher she wanted and that her nemisis from last year moved away, so school is now sooo cool! Yippeee...can you see me doing the happy dance in my chair?
Anyway, I now have a few hours a day that I get to play, so I've been catching up on a few unfinished projects. There are sew many the I want to start on!
I have a few Pix to share today, and will post some more tomorrow...batteries need charging, agian...LOL!
Picture #1 is of the Pin Dolls I did for a swap over at Doll Street...
Picture #2 gave me the idea for my pin dolls above...I started Kate Erbach's Merna Takes a Test Drive Class over at Crafty collage back in June? and haven't had a chance to work on it...the head wrapped in the pink and aqua is my small head for the little mermaid my Merna will be holding on her fishie (we had our family pic done in caricature at Disney World last year, and I thought it would be fun to use my version of those faces on the mermaids...this one is my Rachel)
The second face in the picture is the one that Rachel drew...isn't it adorable? She is supposed to draw me a body and arms and legs so I can make it into a doll for her...she's just been "too busy to craft!" since school started :O)
Next picture is of "Lake Superior Splash"...she's my little mer that is patiently waiting for me to finish the seahore she is supposed to me sitting on...maybe next week???

Next, I have a picture of a little wally dolly I did for my bulletin board in my sewing room:

And last, but not least...I'm working on a "Fire and Ice" project that pooped into my head one night when I couldn't sleep. I've started the "Ice Queen" and have the plan for my fire portion to be the "Fire King"...just have to get it in gear and draw him out :O) Here is a sneak peak on what I've done on her so far:
I hope you enjoy my new pix...I'm off to go play with dolls!

Have a sew happy day,

I have just had so much fun looking at your page. Love your dolls. Wish I could figure out how to change my background.

Thank you ladies!
The compliments warm my heart :O)
My Lake Superior Mer's tail isn't wired...just quilted and beaded. The Amber Mer's tail is wired and quilted.
Hugs, Kat
