Feels like I've been away forever. My husband got very sick with ulcerative colitis, and had his colon removed. Now he's living with an ostomy bag (permanent), and has lost his job because he no longer do heavy lifting. It's been rough around here lately, and very scary. He is home from the hospital (has been for a month now) and doing much better. He lost a ton of weight, and got down to 143 pounds.
Now that things are a bit more settled, I decided to start creating my dolls again. This is Rosanna, who was very much inspired by my husbands extremely thin appearance during the thick of it all. Even though it might be a bit taboo, I decided to leave her nude. I don't believe she looks vulgar at all, and hope I don't offend anyone with her bareness.

Finally got one of those doll bodies finished. My sister named her Lana, as I rarely name the dolls I make. Just listed her on Etsy. She is the first doll that I've used mohair on. I love the way it takes it's own shape. It looks so disheveled, and yet, I really like it. With all the light colors, she reminds me of winter.

Wow, even my husband got the day off of work today, which is rare, even in these weather conditions. I haven't ventured out of the house today. I went outside a few minutes ago to see if hubby needed a hand with the shoveling, and I couldn't open the door. He had to shovel the snow before I could get out. So, of course, I had to take a few pictures.
