What to do when I have a half-finished doll the kids are salivating to get their hands on? I let them play with it of course! Not sure if this was prudent, but it sure was fun. I’ve allowed the kids to play with her because I wasn’t sure I could finish her before the end of the school year. I’m glad I did because they’ve been having so much fun with her. Especially the hair, they can’t stop messing with the hair! They even put this cute flower in it that came from a cupcake we had for snack.
My older girls are so excited, they fixed up a chair just for her!
Even though she’s not done, I added some personal touches to make her more like me. I have a big group, so I blow a whistle to get their attention and I always wear my badge. But the one thing that distinguishes me is my crochet phone case I always wear on my belt loop. I gave her one of my old ones, along with an old phone I still had lying around.
This project needs to end so I brought the half finished doll home because I was worried I would never get her finished. I guess I’m just not having too much down time at work. I’m on spring break and I thought it prudent to finally get her done. The kids have been playing with her as is and I know they will be over the moon if I show up next Monday with a finished doll.
When I got home, I propped her up on the couch and have been scaring the bejeezus out of everybody. You walk around the corner and run smack into her, and for a brief second, you think there’s an unknown kid in the house! Now I know how the custodian feels at work.
I couldn’t decide if I wanted to work my way down to the shoes or work my way up to the thighs. Feet up won.
I’ve got half her legs done and I have no doubt I can finish and attach them by the end of the week.
This means I won’t be able to work on finishing my Bavarian Sweater but with time running out before the end of the school year, I thought the more prudent course of action was to finish the doll and then finish the sweater. After all, it’s not even cold anymore. The sweater can wait, life-size doll CANNOT.
