Venice Carnival WIP


I've had a busy couple of days interviewing, errands and more job seeking. I've got a second interview today for a job that I think may be the one so keep your fingers crossed for me.

I was talking to a few people about my use of a knitting needle up the leg of my current work in process, My Venice Carnivale doll. I did buy a brass rod for the purpose but couldn't find it anywhere when I needed it. SO in a pinch I used a double pointed knitting needle. You can just see if peeping out of her toe and into the stand.

She's not fixed in place yet, because I drilled the hole in at the wrong angle, the pose is not quite at the angle I would like. As you can see I've decide on the violet colour for her costume and have been busy beading and otherwise embellishing her. I have plans for her headwear but haven't found all the materials yet. SO I'm on a mission...

This doll is amazing! I love the acrobatic posture & the beautifully bright coliurs of the costume.
