Day 11 - Linda

Finally Day 11 is here and everyone will open my gift to them!  I wrapped them in pieces of material I hand dyed.  Here is is group shot of the girls waiting on the garden steps.  I took a picture of each of them outside then packed them up and sent them to Elizabeth to be sent to new homes.

I was wondering which one would make it's way back to me.  Each doll has a token, mine says Cherish and each doll has a funny black glass bird.  Buzzy is helping by biting the bird.  What a talented guy.

The little ladies are made of painted and collaged alphabet blocks, a clay face, old door pulls for wings, an old earring for a hat and bits and pieces of fabric and lace for their clothes.  The arms and legs don't always match - they were dug from the grounds of an old doll factory in Germany.  I just happened to have enough arms and legs to make all the dolls.  I hope you all enjoy them. 

This has been a wonderful experience and it's nice to meet new art friends and get to know them through their art and blogs.  Thank you ladies and Elizabeth for getting this great group together.  We are lucky enough to have 2 more days of presents.
