Last beaded dolly............

Well, this is the last fully-beaded art doll in the online round robin I'm working with. She's really large at 9 1/2 inches tall; but the beaders have done a wonderful job thus far, as you can see in these photos! Above is the front of the doll.....and check out the creative fabric "yo-yo's" on her! A new idea for other beading projects!
Her full hair and whole dress both front and back have been beautifully beaded in lots of peyote stitch and other "freeform" stitching. Now it's up to me to cover both those naked legs from her skirt down to her little feet!
Our weather today is horrid: 34 degrees and dreary rains....a great day to bead! We need the rain very much and I'm thankful we missed the frozen ice that we usually get this time of year!
