Waiting for paint to dry




Painted and stained

Ta-Dah
Finally..........a purpose to use up all my stash of upholstery trims!  And for such a beautiful, cute cute cute, ornie!  Next step, sometime this year, is to try doll heads/faces with paper mache!  Does art ever quit? !! Thankfully..........NO!
