And this is the back.
I likes the front bestest.

I can't do much with this dad blame broken shoulder. But I guess I'm lucky that the pain meds are helping as much as they are. I'm okay as long as I don't move that shoulder. The hardest things are that I can't lie down, bend over very far, or do any crafty things requiring two hands. I'm sleeping a couple hours at a time in my futon lounger, just slightly reclined. My neighbor is coming over every evening to put the dog food bowls down on the floor for me. Can't take a shower yet. Can't floss my teeth. Don't dare drive with one arm yet. But all in all I'm happy that I can do as much as I can do. It was much more difficult when i had broken ribs. But I had a husband to help me then. I'd still choose the "no hubby" life, though. LOL. This too shall pass...

I have enough collected now (over 200) that I can start using some of them in my doll making. I've only used one so far, in this postcard I made for Cyber Fyber 2009 . If you look really close, you might be able to see it on the Native American's necklace.
I also made the hair from horse hair and put real bird feathers in her hair. Yes, this is an old squaw - I call the postcard "Elder".

Once again, I really like her back and side views. She fits well in my hand, too. Feels good to hold her. (EGADS! Hope I don't end up pregnant!)
I don't make dolls that stand up by themselves. I like to dislplay them laying down or propped up on a shelf or in a display cabinet. And I never hang them on the wall. I just don't think of dolls as being hung on a wall or as standing on their own. The ones I played with growing up never did. The fertility dolls of Southern Angola don't...
