Work in Progress Wednesday - {16/11/11}

Good Morning Wednesday :)

After a few questions on how am I going to customise my Blythe, I thought it was only right to include her into my WIP.
The plan is to, take her scalp off, and re-root her hair with wensleydale tops that I dyed, not sure if I want a purple/pink mix, or the reddy pink mix..or even the green and blue???
I am also going to give her 4 sets of new eye chips, tweak her eye mechanism so that I can change the position of the eyes into a more realistic one.
I am going to take her face plate off and sand it down to Remove her current make up and also take the shine off her face, then re-apply Make-up.
Then of course knit/sew clothes to match lol..i have already knitted her a headband out of witches brew!
I have ends to sew in for my granny blanket *sigh*
I am also making a yarn wreath using vintage yarn and felt.
 For my December theme Give way, which will run the early part of next week, I am putting together a Mini yarn wreath kit, which you can make yourself, the wreath is a brilliant size for mantel decoration or for hanging in the Christmas tree, and the kit will also have felt, a little skein of yarn. I also have three knit pro crochet hooks up for grabs, which are lovely to gift, or to keep.
Well that’s it from me today; tomorrow my little pickle turns 2, and we are going to the zoo {squee} so today I am going to dye some more yarn, i spent the whole day yesterday printing and making my yarn labels, I am so chuffed with them! I eat, sleep, breath yarn ATM, i just love working with it lol
 
Have a lovely day, and thanks for stopping by xxx

  3. Good luck on your yarn wreath. I've been going back and forth on what I want to put on one and if I should even do it based on the amount of other stuff going on! Too many choices :) Can't wait to see the progress on Blythe as you go, drastic makeover coming for her I see haha.

  5. That sounds like a lot of work to customize a doll. I've never been into dolls. Thank goodness. I have enough stuff to do!

  7. I can't wait to see your finished yarn wreath -- my favorite thing about Christmas, aside form the carols and merry, smiling faces, is vintage decorations. :)

  15. I always put off sewing in ends, but it's truly the easiest thing to do if I sit in front of the tv and just get it done. Good luck!
