Years and years ago, I had a dream that I was in a diner in the middle of nowhere. The woman who ran the place served steaming bowls of primordial soup, which she got directly from a hole in her kitchen where the primordial soup of creation hadn't yet hardened. The soup was known for its rejuvenative qualities. This dream has stuck with me all these years. This blog is my attempt to follow the path that leads me to Flora's Pond, to find what feeds my body and soul. I hope you enjoy it.

She's all done, except for her base. I may finish the piece of wood she's on and use that, or I may do something else. I don't want to call attention to it, whatever it is. I'm happy with how it came out, though it was a learning process to me sure! Her ruffles are the same printed organza that's on her bodice and underskirt. It was a fun project and I'll try it again, especially since I bought a pasta roller just for this purpose!
The 'fabric" on her dress is self-printed organza bonded to a sheet of sculpey. Takes a little getting used to. The next one will be better!
I baked two tiny spheres to use as her eyeballs. It was easier to get the eyes somewhat even. I've never used glass eyes, partly because They can be pricey and partly because I like painting eyes!
For those of you wondering where the Godmother and Godfather are, they're coming along! I added sculpey hair. She got chopsticks or knitting needles and he got a lovely tiara! Now to dress them!
