Hi doll makers, you probably thought I dropped off the face of the earth since it's been awhile since I posted. I have been enjoying summer: gardening, working around the yard, stuff like that.
I ran into the largest catapillar I have ever laid eyes on! The picture is from:http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/photo/2908916340055811693SnOBeK .There were a crowd of them, and we eventually identified them as waxed sphinx catapillars. Since they don't usually live in these parts, we suspect they hitch hiked on a hanging plant my daughter bought at the greenhouse. They stripped all the leaves, then stopped eating. After a few days, they disappeared. We wonder if they moved on or were some big bird's lunch. Ah - so much nature, so little time.
What am I up to in the doll arena? Not much. I hope to do more after September, by then the gardens should be winding down and the weather less conducive to playing outside.
If you click on this post's title, it will take you to a Magic Miniatures tutorial on how to use flumo or other slip in molds. If you have been considering making your own doll parts from Flumo, this would walk you thru how to do it. It's fun and I hope you give it a try.
