I am deep in dollmaking land now; several dolls made and in need of faces or hair or both and finishing touches like knees or bottoms. Once they get their faces they can give me that look , the one that says I want clothes but I want just the right clothes so think carefully Jenny and make me something I will love.
Having all my fabrics stored in plastic boxes and stacked a mile high makes finding the fabric I want a bit of a physical workout which is not such a bad thing I guess. The best part about Louis leaving to live in another state will be I get some more convenient storage space, I think that's the only good thing though, I will miss him terribly.
Louis has always maintained that I don't do any work and was amazed when I told him how many dolls I made in a year. I said something the other day about having to work and not being able to go out to lunch with him and his sister and I expected him to say the usual disparaging comment about me not working. Instead he said, Oh you work , it just doesn't seem like it to anyone else because you enjoy it so much. Does that mean I have achieved that goal... find something you love to do and you will never work a day in your life. Lucky me.
