Oh you're making the most wonderful dolls. I have to ask, are you going to do a tutorial on your BJD construction? They look so lovely, with those long limbs and swet faces. Beautifully done, Mary.

How many hours of work and efforts to make a beautiful doll that we'll admire!
The idea of this paper basket is fine! I've seen something similar in a blog for kids crafts.
Merry Sunday!:)
