The photo above is a lovely image of my young Grandparents. They look so cheeky and content :O)
The sad part is my Grandma, at the amazing age of 98, passed away this morning. The happy part is she will be reunited with my Grandad. She's waited a long time.
My Grandma loved dolls, and she had a big collection. When I saw her in January, she specifically told me to take the doll my Grandad had bought her (actually, he bought most of them, but there is one she especially wanted me to have) I agreed, but not until she was reunited with Grandad. I will be back in England shortly....

And the chick above is the WIP of my shrine for the Art Auction - I tried to capture the 'essence' of Princess Diana, but it didn't quite work!
I love brown eyes, and prefer my dolls to have brown eyes, but just this once, I went with blue, just because Diana had blue eyes!
I think my next doll will represent my Grandma Ivy.... mmmm, better find a green sweater to cut up, since I still can't knit :O)
