My efforts at making fabric doll faces this week

I have nearly finished another doll but in spite of hours making faces don't know if I will choose one I have made or carry on making some more.
I tried and tried to follow instructions and sculpt a face but the results were hopeless so resorted to flat faces again.
I realise I need to be shown how to do it, I always had problems following patterns.

With all the dreadful things happening in the world I am very grateful to live here in this beautiful part of France and to have our wood to wander in and watch all the wildlife we have.The duck seems happy (even though he can't fly and find himself a mate)to swim about with the moorhens and water rats. We also have an eagret recently arrived but no sign of any kingfishers. The tree that was felled in the summer has been completly sawn into manageable chunks and is safely away drying out ready for next winter.

My fabric book is finished except for assembling , I need help so have to wait until Tony has time to sort me out.


  1. Your doll faces are beautiful as always. I am amazed at your work and how you paint those lovely faces. I know it can be frustrating to want to do a new technique and you can't figure it out. I have been there before! Maybe you can find an online class or video on utube or something so you can see it being done? I hope you can find something that helps. Hugs :)Connie

  2. These faces are delicious! When you are trying something unfamiliar, just breathe, and DO IT! Place the materials in your hands and do it, because the muse is waiting for a chance to express through your hands. Have faith that you will improve and be surprised at what you are able to create. Keep at it; I am pulling for you! *creative hugs* Norma

  3. Thanks so much for your comment. I have just discovered your blog, and I like very much your work.I look forward to your fabric book.

  4. I love your doll faces!! So sweetly rendered! Where is that lovely woodland path that reminded me of my fav Wordsworth poem? I would love to take a spring time stroll with you! Thanks for the glimpse of springtime, as we still have snow everywhere!
    Peace & Plenty,

  5. Your faces a very lovely and make your dolls your own...sort of a signature in a way. I find the face the hardest part when making a doll so maybe I should follow your lead and make lots at one time.

  6. All the faces have such different characters. Your wood looks beautiful, it is so lovely that spring has arrived.

  7. I love your doll faces. They are so cute and look like they're painted porcelain.
