Just finished off this old figure...I did Queenie a while ago, and have Nursie and BlackAdder the second on the go as well, but have lost his hands...it will be good to get them all together as a group.

Lady in Red

Completed the costume for the older lady
seated at a dressing table.
She has very big hair!
She's perhaps going out for the evening...
...or maybe not...
...is she remembering former glory...
...perhaps she's a bit crazy...
I like the uncertainty.

New heads and other WIPs

I have been working on a number of new figures recently including 4 new heads finished this morning. The portly gentleman was originally meant to be seated at a table making toys, but I've been having other thoughts perhaps for him now. The lady in the huge knickers is wearing the Victorian boots I will feature in a 'how to make boots' post soon. I like to have a few things on the go at any one time. :0)

Lady at a dressing table

An older lady, who will be wearing a corset, at her dressing table.
She is a seated figure, and I've been trying to really get her to sit with some 'weight' on her chair. She is either applying powder or lipstick so has pursed up her lips.

Spring is coming

5 Figures dancing with a garland
Some older figures which have been sitting looking at me for long enough. I have tidied them into a little vignette and they look quite merry...maybe I've been inspired watching Lark Rise, or perhaps it's the birds singing and the frogs returning to the pond, but spring seems finally to be in the air after a long cold winter.
