vigilant

she sees in the night



she watches during the day



the nieces said she is a wolf woman. i had a body for her... a rose print dress, an apron with little pockets. but i got the feeling she didn't want it. so i'll let her just stay in her head for now.

She's magnificent! And I agree, a dress and apron would not do for her at all. Unless she was the big bad wolf in disguise. I love her eyes. It's like she's looking right into your heart and soul!

listening too. every little thing.
her eyes are magnificant...the
embroidery is wonderful.
i don't know what to think tho.
you can have all her qualities
and still the dress and apron..
pockets. you would need pockets.
i think maybe i looked a little
like this when my kids were little.
and i liked dresses. retro aprons.

well you know, i thought the apron would go... i saw a fitting image of her in it. but once i sewed it all up, it just didn't work. i had to take it all apart. i still don't see a body for her yet... and i love aprons too grace, the older the better. and pockets. :)

thank you jude... :) i don't know what they signify yet... she hasn't told me. maybe her status in society...

the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola~Estes? i have an extra

no, i haven't heard of it... wolf things have been showing up for me here lately. i've been very attracted to them... and been reading about them... oooh may i borrow it?

and yes she has teeth now... and the top of her tongue is there too. can barely see it though.
