The zetti days of summer......


When I hit a creative block, I turn to what I do best -- fabric. This is the prototype for some zetti dolls that I am making. The idea seems to be by Keely Barham. The face image, and the embellishments on the torso, are by Teesha Moore ( she has added new rubber stamps -- go now and buy some!!!!) -- I think that she is very zetti -- and she seems to be enjoying my garden. She seems hardly afraid at all of the monster ghost dog who is lurking just outside of the frame. The next dolls that I make will have a bit shorter arms that slant down a bit more. But I think that I did a pretty good job on my first try. She's a keeper!

She's a zetti for sure. The flower looks like it's on the tip of her hat. I like her a whole lot! xoxo
