This quote says it all for me:
"I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to."
My small place is my studio area in the corner of my living room. My Whimcees are all the dolls, bears and other creatures that I sew from cloth or sculpt from clay, the cards and papercraft projects that I create.
It is with this blog I hope to share my world created in my small space.

Happy Harry - The Body
Now my favorite part - choosing the fabrics for the two Harry's bodies! I wanted the colors to be bright as he is a happy fellow, right? So this is what I chose.
The arms and hats sewn and turned right side out and the bodies, which have been sewn on the side seams and are inside out, waiting to have the bottoms attached. There are no legs on this doll as Happy Harry is a stump doll.
The bottoms of the bodies are basted in.
The bodies completed and right side out.
Happy Harry #1 now has all his pieces sewn, hands attached to the arms, pieces are all stuffed and ready to be assembled. A bit of ribbon for hat and neck ruffles.
Happy Harry #2 is on his way to joining him.
And so we have them. Happy Harry #1 and #2 are taking shape! But now they need faces!
Thanks for stoppin by today! Tomorrow the faces are sculpted and finished.
It is RAINING AGAIN here in this part of WI. Enough rain I say! :<) Wishing you sunshine!
