Had a very nice New Year's Eve. The Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn concert was good. I'm glad that B really enjoyed himself; that made it all the better. They did a variety of music, blues, bluegrass, murder ballads, traditional. Bela sure can make that banjo sing. Was also cute when they had their 3 year old son come out on the last number and stomp dance along with the song. Afterwards, went to the Dixie Danger Dolls Masquerade, staying about an hour or so til midnight. Imbided a whiskey sour and a champagne toast at midnight. Got lots of compliments on my outfit, but Starlit took top prize with her dazzling ensemble. (She's been having a rough time recently, and she does so much for the Dolls, so she deserved it for that as  well as her costume.)


Practice protoype of a Cornish Pixie doll. 14", Cotton, Button joints in arms and hips; button eyes. Based on character/creatures in the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets movie and book..  I used turning tubes on the fingers and other small parts; I have to say they made a world of difference in being able to turn the fabric- definitely the right tool for the job. Hannah says she wants him "cuter", so going to try  increasing hte head size in proportion to the body and using larger eys (which looking at movie references, the eyes are over sized large) and think the plushier velour fabric will also help with that. That fabric order should show up in a couple days and then I can actually make my daughter's request.


Think I'm going to take a break from sewing today and just watch some of the dollmaking DVD material instead to start of my new year.
