Summer Activities for Margot and Sheila

I bought a few new prismacolor pencils, so I feel more able on the handcoloring these days and thought I'd share a colored version of the newest outfits for Margot and Sheila.

The painting outfit is pretty much exactly what I wear when I paint, except my white collared shirt is not quite so pretty anymore. One time I wore my painting clothes out for a margarita lunch with my boss at the art gallery and a lady actually stopped and told me how much she liked my outfit. I don't think she was being facetious, which made me think I could really be on to something. But I haven't painted much lately, so that particular fashion line has yet to be realized.

The bathing suit was a challenge, given that the original dolls are wearing dresses. The solution was to add on a bunch of stuff for the doll to carry, which somehow doesn't make going to the beach look all that relaxing. Oh well. The next dolls will be in their skivvies.

Flags, check!

I am slowly checking things off my summer to-do list, starting with the flags. They were made for and used at my friend's gorgeous wedding in Toronto, and then got a second life at the Southern Vermont Arts Festival! I think they add a nice festive touch to the front gate tent.

I have a quilt in the works, its a little one but will be a nice curling up on the hammock size I think.

And, big news, we have our wedding date and location! That means I can start on the save the dates for real, which means the whole thing is actually real, which is freaking me out a bit but is mainly just exciting! Pretty sure there will be new to-do lists posted soon involving wedding projects...
