100% Beaded Doll RR ~ Meet Blossom


I just can't get enough of beading -- and working on more than one project at a time is a great stimulus for me --- soooooo, I have joined a beaded doll round robin. The theme of the round robin in Summer Magic. The doll's name is "Blossom". The little form pictured has a head that may or may not be beaded as a flower (the beaders choice) and her arms are shaped like leaves -- again, whoever beads that section may see it differently -- that's what will make it so much fun -- I just put her in the mail today for the first stop in the RR. I will update the blog as I receive photos. I made her form from fabric I had found earlier in the week at an Historical Society Flea Market -- the face has a butterfly on it -(I wish I could remember where I got the face -- I have two others like it but with different colored butterflies). She is summery, yes? She is traveling with a booklet for the beaders to write in. (On the mailing route sheet, in the photo I have smudged out the names and addresses of the other RR beaders for privacy sake)

Beautiful start...so now she will do the rounds and then come back to you?

Thanks, Bobbi. Yes, she will visit 3 beaders in Arizona (different cities), one in Indiana and one in Mississippi and then comes home to me. ;-)

You work on more than one project at time?? I can't seem to find the time to do that very often... LOL.

Nice doll form, it should be a lot of fun for the beaders to work on.

This was a fun form to make -- sorry, JoAnne, no pattern -- I just made it up for this particular round robin. If you ever need a form, let me know and I'll try to help you out. Love doing these things ;-)
