She's Done! Finally!

Thanks again to everyone who voted. Periwinkle and Blue were 1 vote apart with blue the winner, Red and Dark Golds were tied 1 vote behind the leaders, and the light gold was last. As you can see, I went with the Blues. The bodice fabric was gifted to me by a lovely lady who brought it back from Russia! I spent a whole day beading the trim on her bodice. The piece of prebeaded trim I had was 6" short. The netting on her hat was also a gift from a dear Doll Club member who received a bag of vintage trims from a customer (she shared them with the club). I used a heavier wire for her whiskers which I may change to a finer wire. Couldn't find my silver 32g wire.
Also attended a quilt show this weekend and purchased an Embellisher. I am itching to play with it and after I clean off my work table, I think I will! I took lots of pics of the Hoffman dolls and will post them once I get them edited. The winning doll was there and she was just amazing! The detail was phenominal--certaily doesn't show up in the photos.
