Matilda and her sister . . .

 

.  .  .  .  and her sister
Oh, My ! ! ! !
I don't know her name -  -  -

I worked on her last night.
I just had to have a gal in pink
this is as pink as I could go last night.
Do I need an infusion of new fabric ? ? ? ?

Now before you go all soft on her not having a name yet
let me tell you a little something about this gal.
I was doing my part,
I gathered fabric, color pencils, wire, straws, dowels,
I mean I gathered everything I needed.

Proceeded to stitch and cut
color and turn
stuff and stitch some more.
Wound her wire legs.

Yes, I got out my 'doll hair stash'.
Now this is where things go wacky. 
Or should I say this gal went all postal on me.
Here I was going with the blonde hair -
well, you know it's common knowledge that they do have more fun.

Got it all in place and attached
AND WHADDA YA KNOW
I took one look at her puss and hair
and she there all looking like she's a
GRANDMA ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Not a grandma my age,
she's lookin' like she could be like MY Grandma.
You know, all old-fashioned [spell that D-O-W-D-Y]

She was showing her true personality and she was steamin' with her eyes all x'd
there, Take a Close Look At Her Eyes.
Postal ! ! !

This is NOT what I envisioned earlier in the evening.

Well, took a time-out had a baklava dessert


and a cuppa Earl Grey.
A time-out to cool off.

Perhaps I wasn't exactly cooled
because I ripped off all those blonde curls.

There she sat bald as a cue ball
-  -  -  there you little tart ! ! !
I'll show ya whose boss 'round here.


No not to be bested by a stuffed postal tart
I chose a little less blonde but none the less blonde
and went about calmly attaching her new hair.

Well, take a look ! ! ! ! !


 

Isn't she lookin' sweet.
[though her eyes are still x'd - what? she's showin' attitude??????


It remains to be seen what she'll be holding in her hands
perhaps this'll tone her down a might.
whatdda ya think?

Right now she's a no-name a-little-less-blonde tart  ?angel?

Hubby's cataract procedure went pretty darn good today.
Tomorrow will be a check up and then he's good to go.

  1. Matilda was my mother-in-laws. How about Henrietta for your second doll? Both are too cute.

  2. The look like the good and the bad. The attitude just comes through with 'nameless' - maybe Jezebel - hmmmm?

    Glad hubby's procedure went well.

    Hugs - Marie

  3. Oh my gosh, you are so funny. Both gals are cuties. That sister sure has such a huge personality. I like the fabric you used on her. Glad your husband is doing well. Maybe the sister needs eye surgery, too?
