This is...

...my favourite op shop (car boot sale) find.

I had too many to chose from really. I mean should I have picked the bargain bags full of goodies to use - threads, broken jewellery, fabric, etc - or should I pick clothing bargains? Nah!! A silly toy that hasn't got any use or function but I just love her. Grow up girl!!
At the moment she is buried in my workroom, leaning back and looking slightly inebriated. Far from being a seaside bathing belle, she looks more like a Beryl Cook type of lush.
I really must get around to making a pattern from her. A series of dolls like this in brightly coloured cozzies would be great.
Will post more later but I wanted to make sure I actually took part in the "This is..." meme this week now I've signed up to it. Click on the link to find out more.

Cute doll, and a great source of inspiration for making more.
