I end up with this firecracker! Louella and I share the same little birth mark by the side of our mouths, so we're like…soul sisters.
When I started embroidering her face this morning, she started to look a bit sad. I wondered "Oh my, is Louella going to be a sad little girl?". But then, the hands kept going, we did her eyebrows and still sad.
I am always amazed at the level of expression that simple thread eyebrows give the dolls. There was a little sadness in her eyes, that turned into inquisitiveness, and all of a sudden we have quite the chipper little person in our hands. Maybe is the little crooked wee smile.
And so, while Caleb runs around half-naked, chasing Luna and making mischief, Louella and I ponder the BIG questions in life:
- petticoat or pantaloons?
- long skirt or long dress?
- shawl or scarf?
- tea or smoothie?
- naughty or nice?
Don't you agree on our conversation? I keep telling you people, making dolls is so much fun. I hope you believe me.
