Amber Lace - A Cloth Doll Completed

Two ladies in my craft group made this doll recently so I finally completed my version. She is a stuffed cloth 'beauty'. I painted her face Saturday afternoon while I lazed in my gazebo enjoying the sunshine. Using mainly recycled materials for the doll including a vintage doily for her collar, I had fun embellishing my project with different items I have in my 'stash'.

My completed doll is not as fancy as the picture illustrated in the magazine article, however she is my version of Amber Lace, a Victorian cloth doll bust. I think I will complete the body if I make another one like this doll as I am wondering what I am going to do with her now. Please comment.

She's lovely! How lucky that you have a gazebo to work in! How would that be?
