And here she is. Sweet Tasha. An old soul. My dreams came true!.
When I started working with this last collection, I wanted to make a bigger doll that resembled Tasha Tudor. Obviously not in a direct way, but in doll form. A doll that will give you the vibe of the sweet nature of Tasha, of her softness and of her grounded life. This doll is what came out it.
Tasha is a natural doll, and she is almost 17" tall. Although somehow she wears the same clothes that my 15" dolls do. Talk about unique!. She is made with cotton interlock and wool stuffing. Her hair is a mix of handspun wool and mohair yarns and is applied strand by strand to allow for very versatile styling. She is wearing a cotton double-gauze blouse, that closes on back with two wooden buttons, and has a cute little girl with a kerchief wooden button on front. She also has a skirt made of linen that closes with a handmade button loop and a wooden button on back. Her shoes are made of cotton and have wooden buttons and her shawl is made of linen. Her hair net is made of cotton and has a tie so she can keep it n, holding all her hair.
Oh! How I wish I could keep her! How I wish she was mine. But she is not. She does belong somewhere, but I am not sure where.
We did this old-school style, wrote the names down and pulled one out of a very pretty basket. The chubby hand of a four year old picked the name of Doulamama/Sarah. I'm so happy to know where will Tasha go, and to let her know about her upcoming journey. Thanks to everybody that expressed their interest to take Tasha with you. She is a very special doll to me, and I was very taken by all your comments and words.
Stay tuned for a FANTASTIC giveaway! more details very soon...
