Meet Gorgeous Greta


























Finally assembled all the parts and pieces my latest tassel doll late yesterday. When I asked her what she would like to be called she said, "Just call me, Gorgeous, dahling." Well, I thought that was a little presumptuous so I looked at her and since she reminded me of Greta Garbo I told her that her name would be Greta. She said she would be happy with Gorgeous Greta. We'll see.....Hope you enjoy her.

Tassel Doll progress report


I've done more work on my latest tassel doll. Since I sculpted the feet, I decided that sculpted hands would be the right thing to do for the hands. This is new territory for me and it took me a whole day to get two hands that I thought were at least decent. Working in this scale is very difficult and, of course, being my first time I certainly had challenges to overcome. Her face, hands, and feet have been painted and I made shoes for her feet.....didn't think she looked like Cinderella so I made shoes. I've embellished her gown (tassel) with beads, gave her a ring and bracelet for a little bling. She has a fur cape and she will be getting a purse and hat soon. Of course, she needs hair too..... She still hasn't told me her name yet......maybe one of you can suggest a name. I hope to get her done this week.
