My little nurses and lost followers

Am really not well at the moment . Have caught a bad chest cold after a short stay at hospital.I have lost my voice too...ah...well....fortunately, my whole army of mini nurses is with me.

It is soooooooooooooooo therapeutic to create things. Doll making really takes my mind to another place, but if I start to get grumpy ( yes it happens more than you can imagine!) and that I see no lovely image in my head, I just put the doll away and relax. I don't like to work if I don't feel happy.

Her are some dolls I have been working on lately for my Etsy or for custom orders.

This is Morella or "The Widow"

(inspired by the very talented Benjamin Lacombe)

I will try to work a bit more with this head shape in the future.

Below is my Marie-Antoinette. She is ALMOST finished.

And let me introduce you to Greta the little black & white doll who loves her Chanel shoes!

The photo below is a little doll I made for a customer whose favourite colour is eggplant!
I love her little profile with her round cheeks.

There is also something else that REALLY bugs me:

I have lost my followers!!

Well, not really LOST but, I cannot see you my dear friends!

I first thought it was a temporary thing but now it has almost been 2 months!

If you know what to do...

Hope you're feeling better soon. It's not fun being under the weather. I also hope you get your followers back. I know how upsetting it is not to be able to see them. It's been happening to all of us off and on. I don't have any idea how to correct it, so no help there. I have to tell you that your dolls as simply adorable and it's a pleasure seeing them. Have a great weekend. Hugs

I'm back, and I can see your followers, all of them. This really a mystery. Try what I suggested in the email if it pertains that is, if not I have no idea. Good luck.

I hope you feel better soon! I love the widow doll-- I just sold a black widow doll of my own. :) As for followers, I'm not sure what to do. I lost mine for a little bit, but they returned on their own. Good luck!

These are such beautiful dolls! I hope you get to feeling better soon! Your followers are showing up fine for me! Is your page cached? I'm wondering if you just need to clear your cookies so you can reload the page from scratch and see them!

Abi said...

Sorry to hear you are not well dear Patricia. Hope you get to feeling better soon.
Love your dolls as always. Marie is to die for!!!! so wonderful.

Good luck with the elderly pooch guest - I regularly look after a friends oldy, and I love her, but she is very set in her ways. The entire household has to adapt to her, but we don't mind.

Hugs X

J'adore, j'adore ce que tu fais!! Et je suis d'autant plus flattée que tu aies apprécié mes petites créations...

Bravo pour ton livres et toutes tes idées! Sarah
