Sophia Finished !!

Well She's finished .............. nearly!

I made Sophia for a Maida challange and 1 August is the deadline - cutting it fine?? Sure am!

Pretend she's wearing shoes and her cat isn't something I bought at a market stall - she will have these but you know Father-Time...

Hope you enjoy the photos.

She looks like she’s takin’ it easy, but Sophia is just waiting for me to finish her hair!  I couldn’t find anything big enough for her to sit comfortably and dry off and even though it makes her look tea cup size she is approx 13 inches and the tea cup is huge and is part of a lovely antique cup and saucer set – little did the original maker know it would be used 150 years later to dry dollies in!

I’m making Sophia for the Maida postcard challenge and I think I’m going to finish on time – hooray!  Dress and knickers are finished, so it’s just shoes and her cat.  Not sure if the cat’s going to be more realistic or more toy ....... I’ll just see where my scissors and thread take me.
