This was the Morphe doll I couldn't part with.
From the feet up.... such an underrated part of the anatomy. And I have this thing for shoes.
I didn't get her finished in time for Morphe, anyway. She's so small (only 5" high), that she had to be put together by hand. And that was much trickier than it sounds. Mym exhibits the most flagrant disregard for seam allowances.
I've been experiencing Crafter's Block. For the first time ever. I go into the studio and ....... nothing. Or worse; 8 hours later I would end up undoing everything in utter disgust. I became afraid to go into the studio, because the lack of result was devastating.
If I've learnt anything, it's how important crafting is to me, and my sense of who I am. Life without craft is like being breathed on by one of those Black Riders in Lord of the Rings, (and we all know how scary they are). Abyss. All the way.
However, thanks to some much-appreciated support from my fellow crafters, I believe I may just have come through it. It helps to know that Collapses of Faith happen to other people, too. Especially ones you admire.
I finished something, anyway, and that has to be a Good Thing. Here's hoping....
