The changes are slow in coming, but I think they make a big difference with each step. I’m closer to being done with her red outline, then I’ll start sewing the doilies down.
Today, as I was sewing the red squares around Zelda, I thought of the outline as her aura. I don’t know what a red aura means, but I’ll be looking into that next.

Maria, this is turning out so well and I know what a difficult job this is. I love the red background it makes the dress really
stand out. I’ve worked with doilies and lace in quite a few projects and I know how time consuming this can be. It is just beautiful.
You have the innocence and purity of the white/cream color and the fiery passion of the red. Maybe Zelda will find her true self somewhere in the middle. I think life’s journey is like that. We start out as innocent kids and progress to who we want to be. Thought-provoking, Maria!
I just finished reading Jon’s comments regarding that pink collar for Zinnia. You and others felt that pink was indeed, a strong color. That thought brought me back to Zelda, because when you combine red with white, you get … pink. Strong yet feminine. Zelda is destined for greatness.
Was just enjoying the videos on your belly dancing tonight! Your makeup and costumes are terrific! I read a book long ago where the woman’s chin was permanently tattooed by Indians. I really like your chin makeup; it is similar, https://www.amazon.com/Olive-Oatman-Life-Beginning-End-ebook/dp/B07Q83S5RQ and I wondered where your inspiration came from.
The book sounds really interesting Barbara. I’m not really why the ATS dancers took the chin tattoo as part of their makeup. I’ll try to find out.
Your Doily woman reminds me of a bride from the Day of the Dead, Dia de Muertos, in Mexico. The timing is right too; it’s November 2nd!
Oh yes, Hazel!
