~ In the Works ~


well 
HELLO there!
 ៚៚៚៚៚៚៚៚៚៚
I am working on this girl now ~
her name is Claudia.

{{ Claudia Cluck is her full name actually. }}
 

...she has been living in my brain now for a while,
and I have finally let her come out to play ~
{ she is very persuasive }
ಊಊಊಊಊಊಊಊಊಊ
 here she is on my Hookinpunch© gripper frame,
waiting for me to finish my farm chores so I can get back to her!


she will be a stand-alone doll 
~ once she is finished coming to life with my needle and threads.
{threads are Valdani #8 pearl cottons & some DMC 6 strand}
 

then I will bring all of her friends to life too.
{and she has MANY}.
〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰



And, once they are finished, 
I will set about creating their babies!
 FUN FUN!!!!!!
