Does the name Lily Pons mean anything to you? :)
How about the BellSong from Lakeme?
Ohhhhh honey....if you can sing that I will die and go to musicalheaven
I always say if there are any other opportunities after this life I really really want to be a singer!
A real singer.
A Lily Pons singer
She is to coloratura that Arthur Rubinstien is to Chopin on the Piano, as Michelangelo is to chapel ceilings!!!
Be still my heart- If you sing for us I'll pay for your lunch!
Golly Geepers! I have been away from this board for a few days and now I have to play catch up!
I have to say I just LOVE all your Golly pictures!
When I was a young child we immigrated to the USA from England. We had Golly toys and my parents told us later that they had to be careful not to take the golliwogs out in public as they were not seen as politically correct.
It is a shame that many black people get offended by them I think they are charming dolls..especially the ones you ladies posted. There are lots of white dolls that are quite silly and goofy looking but they have never offended anyone that I know of...how about any of you?
Dr. Wyane Dyer says that people need to "stop getting offended. If you want to get offended you won't ever have to look far. It is a choice."
Also, what talent is turning up on this board! Pianists, opera singers...wow!
Stopppp it stoopppppittttttttttt :rolleyes::mad::rolleyes::P
I am so wanting to make gollies now - I'm going to get addicted, I just know it. Can they be hand sewn? Any good places for things like a kit where I can try one first? Ohhh gee, look what you have done..
Dilu, I love you side glancing golly...ooh mannnn..
Danni I don't know about kits, but I'll tell you how I started.
I studied a bear pattern- and then pretty much made the body the same-arms, legs body etc....then I thought a flat face but a two piece back head so that I could use mohair. It worked-
But then I got a Stieff woggy for a present- and he has a NOSE!!!!
so then I started playing around with how to do a nose. I can do one with a seam down the center easily enough, but couldn't figure out how to do one without a center seam. I do believe the Steiff was wool felt steamed over a form.
Anyway- you don't need a kit....not with the way you do bears. Just get youtrself some black fabric and let her rip.
I sized down my 3 inchers today-I am going for 2".
and of course they can be hand sewn- whatever way you like-
So...now we are all waiting to see what YOU come up with....I can hardly wait.
Aren't Jane and Laure's to die for?
Yyeay we have some might talanted artists here.
The only caveat I would have....is use good lighting=-black thread on black fabric = eye strain
