Once every few years I make a few dolls and Queen Anne dolls are quite often my inspiration. I currently have four Queen Anne pincushion dolls in the making and I hope to have them ready by the weekend.
I usually start by looking at my doll reference books or at online photos of antique dolls. I make a few quick sketches just to have an idea of the size they will be and hopefully to get the proportions close to what I have in mind.
This was part of last night's conversation:
"What's in the oven?"
"Body parts. You can put your pizza in there when my timer goes off."
They don't look like much, but hopefully once painted and clothing is made, they will start to look like queens... Queen Anne dolls!
Thanks for visiting!
