Need a good night sleep...
Yesterday I went to bed at 4:00 am.. just to find out I couldn't sleep... I was trying to make a doll with osnaburg and I drew very skinny arms and legs, which I had to sew again like 3 times because the darn thing keep falling apart when I stuffed it. Anyway It was 1:00 am when my husband went to bed and I told him I was about to go too. I could have used muslin but nooooo I wanted osnaburg!!!!!! So there I was, stuffing again, making legs again... sewing the parts in place.. decided I wanted to hand felt the hair... decided she look a little bid odd.... decided to add a hat.... decided she look a little bit plain... decided to stitch her face.... decided she needed color... decided to paint her face... decided to check the clock... 3:50 am!!!!! No wonder I have dark circles the size of Texas. So I said, I'm going to sleep. Left everything like it was, and off to bed I went just to realize I have insomnia... I just lay there, thinking about 1041094809348 stupid things i will do the next day, or ideas I want to paint, or dolls I want to make, or posts I want to write. When I'm finally asleep my baby daughter wakes up, I wake up, my husband wakes up and this time I go back to sleep easily. In the morning I wake up totally sleepy and with not a single idea in my mind... I don't know what happen to them. They evaporate with the light. I'm definitely not a day person.
Here she is (I borrowed a camera). Just the face because I'm still trying to decide if I want her with legs or a make do. I thing that's going to be decided this night.
