The Tilda Christmas presents

Here's my dad's Christmas present - minus eyes as I've mislaid the pen I used for the girl's face and want him to match. I seem to be losing stuff all the time right now!


A couple of close ups...




I'm glad they're done and even more glad we decided on fairly cheap handmade stuff for everyone this year. The recession has hit and I had some potentially really bad news workwise yesterday. I can't say more - at the worst we could have no income at all in a few weeks, but work might carry on for a month or so or I might get other work. It's impossible to know. The future is very uncertain.

  12. Hi Nicki. First of all, congrats on such a great job with the dolls for your parents. They are quite a handsome pair! Second, I'm sorry about the work situation and I hope it will get better. I can say from experience that it did happen to both of us for about a year and we survivied. If 'the worse' does happen, know that you will get thru it. (that was mean to be helpful...)
