Queen of Hearts

Just finished my Valentine whimsical doll for 2008, well almost done except for a bunch of hearts for her to hold. I have about three weeks left before my Valentine open house and am working flat out to get all done that I wanted to do. Why do I leave it so late? I really needed to start work on this last year but there just never seems to be time to catch up!!
Queen of Hearts was made without a pattern, i love to create ad-lib, just winging it along. Her dress is a lovely old deep red wool fabric, its ever so soft and fall beautifully. Her trims are vintage lace and real feathers, her crown i made from a broken real pearl necklace i have had for many many years. Her head is painted muslin
and sprinkled with mica
