Back to Normal



It's no secret that the Winter has been very mild for many....
It may have some baring..
or 
perhaps it has just been a banner year for sniffles and various other maladies.
At least at the cottage.
Somewhere in it all, 
it led up to a hospital stay for me.
I am not one to have too many issues,
let alone a serious one.
Perhaps it was just my turn.
I am home now and quite well~
Other than being a bit tired,
 I am back to normal.
Trying to catch up on my work 
and pick up the pieces where I left off...

Sometimes ideas come 
when there is a shift in our routine.
Sometimes when we are very tired..
many times for me;
 when I am in the shower.
I think all of these came together!
I was frantic, 
having lost most of a week~ 
Early Work would be due! 
I had a wee start, 
but I so wanted to make a bird...

...and then came Wynda.
Named after a sweet friend who shares my love for historical movies and series.
 Underneath her, 
she has a petticoat,
bloomers and fabric boots that lace.
Her eyes give her a persnickey personality 
and a folky appearance.


As I posted my offerings for Early Work~
I held my breath a bit.
I had taken a chance with Miss Wynda...
stepped out of the box a bit 
with those folky eyes that I do love.
It doesn't mean that others will like it...
especially on a more realistic face.

I couldn't have been happier with the response!

....I am so pleased! 
 There are similar friends
 that are coming to life on my worktable
and
 I hope you will enjoy as well.
