Too bad I have to work 2 of the 4 days! I could get sooooo much done if I could stay home!
Last night I made a lot of progress on the rose doll though.
I finished the cap:
I finished crocheting the head, stuffed it, added the eyes, and stuck the cap on:
I made the 2nd leg (1st one was done over the weekend) and attached the two to start the body:
And here’s a pic of the leaf bag that I made over the weekend (also showing my horrible-looking nails…someday I’ll get a manicure!):
What’s left to do?
Finish the body
Make 2 arms and sew them on
Attach the head to the body
Make a little leafy collar to go around his neck and sew it on
Make a couple of petals to stick in the bag
Find a Texas button or pin to put on his bag
Decide if I’ll put a ladybug button on this one like I did on the sunflower
Looks like a lot of stuff, but it’s really not. The body will go quickly. The most tedious part will be the arms because they’re so small and “fiddly.”
Barring any issues like I had with that cursed armadillo, this should be done by Saturday, or Sunday at the latest.
