WIP Wednesday

I haven't done one of these posts in a while, but I have definitely been busy.  My Moda Friendship blocks keep breeding, and I now have a healthy stash of ten.  That's 1/3 of the way through all the blocks!
I didn't get any done over the Easter break, but I did try to see if I could perhaps challlenge myself to make another baby doll, this time with an embroidered face and some soft sculpture.  This one has a cute little booty!  I won't even pretend to know what I am doing.  There are certainly parts that look a little demented, but then again I am sure anyone would look a bit strange after being poked several times with an untrained needle! (yes, I am blaming the needle, not my hand...) 
I think I will have to see how she turns out before I go and enter this little one in the competition.  I definitely didn't take much notice of the warning that little 8" dolls like this one aren't really the best for beginners.  They look so easy until you try them.  Ahh, it's all practice and Maddy likes her. Now, let's see if I can get that other eye to match.
Speaking of Maddy, I brought home the pieces of a very bright pink costume for tonight to be sewn up for her Calisthenics exercises item.  Most cali Mums will know what comes next - tedious hand stitching of tonnes of sequins!  So perhaps my Moda stack will remain at its current size for just a little bit longer.

Love your Friendship blocks! :) The fabric is beautiful.

Your doll is going to be really cute. I hate using those untrained needles. Sometimes it takes a while to whip them into shape ;) Don't let it beat you. :)
