This is Bess--she will have traditional, cloth upper arms. She will be tiny, about 6 1/2" in height.
This is Cherish, who will be 16" tall. I am working on her limbs right now, and she will have jointed ankles--just because it seemed like it would be fun to do! Her hair will be very dark brown, human hair.
I am working quite slowly on these dolls, not because they are hard, but because there is just too many other things I have to do right now. I am very much enjoying making them, and am super happy with how they are turning out. After all these years, I think I may have found my true carving passion!!
My next one--yes, I am always thinking ahead--will be bigger than Cherish, and more of a lady than a child.
