New Girl On The Block and Springing Spring Blossoms

My friend Lori in Canada is going through a particularly difficult time in her life
right now and she saw my dolls and said she'd really like to have one.
SO I made her this Curly Redhaired gal in her argyle sweater!
Lori has curly redhair too!

 She wears a neck muff for warmth, as it's still snowy and cold where Lori lives; and has long red eyelashes that contrast nicely with her green ears!
 She likes posing for the camera for her close ups!
She is made from three different socks.
 She liked hanging out in my garden, but will hop a plane to Canada tomorrow so she can smile at Lori and make her smile in return!
 Speaking of my garden the dwarf peach tree has burst into full bloom and has a dazzling display of blossoms that I am enjoying!

 If you squint just right you can see Henry walking behind the tree here. He likes rubbing up against its low growing branches.

 I liked seeing it's shadows on the fence.

Pretty huh? Happy Sunday!

So, thank you so much for your lovely words. I am super happy to inspire artists just as they inspire me!! I love the way you draw! And it turns out... you can make adorable dolls too!
