MEMORIAL DAY 2014

Memorial Day is a time to remember the men and women who died while serving in our country's armed forces. It's a time to reflect, to pay our respects, to give thanks to the brave men and women who gave their lives for our freedom. Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day. Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans. With this said, today, on Memorial Day I still honor my belated father for his military service and visit his grave even though he did not die while serving. I thank those past and present who serve our country.

ANYA AND BABA DOLL #1 FINISHED

 "The Traveler" Doll called Anya and Baba

 Today I finished the last details. I changed her head position, made her a walking stick and necklace. I used my own baby design which has a trapunto style face. The baby is dressed in a one piece romper and I designed another hat that ties in the front under her chin.  At first I had the hat scrunched ....but I wasn't all that thrilled with how it looked. So I changed her look by allowing the hat to be more elf style. I love it! Well I'm finally done with the two dolls and it was a long but fun journey. Thank-you Angela for a wonderful class.

THE TRAVELLER DOLL #2 ~ANYA AND BABA~




ANYA AND BABA Doll #2
THE TRAVELER  by Bethann Scott



 I made Anya her hat and needle felted wool yarn in whimsy circles. It's different from the class pattern. I also made Baba a different style hat. I decided to go with my own baby's design. I may try Angela's for the other doll I need to finish. The class seems to be doing well with the baby.

 


 I swept Anya's hair to a side pony tail and added braided decorative yarn. Angela also showed the class how to make a necklace. For her necklace I chose glass beads. I also added the cuffs to her coat. I think I'm about finished.
 Here's the back view...I didn't add the beads to her coat. I'm not sure if I will or not.

THE TRAVELLER ~BABY DOLL~ WIP

"BABA" 
Anya and Baba WIP by Bethann Scott
Anya and Baba a work in Progress
The hair is "fly away" hair until I sew up the hats.
The baby doll is a tiny little doll. I would say about five inches. I made Angela's little baby and I also designed my own baby. In the photos above is the one I designed.  I also designed a one piece romper for the baby using a bright pink batik.

 I started a second  doll. This girl has a dark complexion but I'm not sure what ethnicity she will be....African American?? I did shape the head differently on this doll.
