Pink Lady arrives!!!

Awhile back, I posted a photo here on my blog of a two-inch beaded square that I made and donated to be sewn onto this doll's skirt, along with many other artists. Monica Magness, mixed media artist (girl_gone_thread_wild) has spent many weeks making this 39" tall doll from the ground up; plus sewing all the beaded squares you see onto the skirt. There are still more squares to be made into a little art wall quilt after Monica takes a rest break! (continued below............)

Isn't she elegant and wonderful?!! She's to be eventually auctioned off on ebay , and all the proceeds will be donated to the Susan Komen Breast Cancer Center. As a breast cancer survivor, my little 2" piece of this doll means a LOT to me; and I am so happy to have been asked to participate in the project. (Continued below............)
Here's a close-up of part of the doll's skirt; aren't all the squares beautiful little works of art?!! I am amazed that Monica or anyone could pull this together in such a short time.........but here she is! The hand beaded "crown" on the doll's pink hair is actually a cuff bracelet which goes with the doll. The handmade box she's holding was made by another artist and it holds decorated "butterfly wings"! Yet another donated a purse for the doll to carry; and another beaded a gorgeous "necklace" which will also be the buyer's bracelet to enjoy! The whole process and story is amazing.......please go to Monica's blogs shown in my list of blogs to visit on the right-hand side of my page and see the step-by-step process that made the vision of this doll become a reality! She's awesome!!! (The doll AND Monica Magness!) "THANK YOU!" to every artist who made and gave a square, and the many others involved in this project. The "Pink Lady" is named "Love Squared", and I will let you know when she appears in the doll magazine, and when she sells on ebay!
