Comfort Doll - Strength



I decided to make a couple dolls for Pat Winter's Comfort Doll Project(http://comfortdolls.blogspot.com/). This was my first attempt. My idea was to create a Dancing Doll - in my mind I was thinking of one of those moments of pure joy - dancing when no one else is there, singing when no one is there to hear. I think I will be making more - maybe a whole series of Dancing Dolls! This wee one started out as quite a docile creature - tentatively named Rose - but as she progressed she became more militant and by the time she was complete she insisted her name was simply Strength. I hope she manages to find a home - perhaps she can hang from someone's rear view mirror and share her courage - a talisman of luck and hope for the future.
