I am sad to report that my elf is STILL unfinished due to illness. I went to the doctor last week and learned that I was suffering from a severe bout of bronchitis, but now medication will hopefully have me on my feet again soon.
Since I have been able to do little else I have spent a lot of time on the internet, and ran across something interesting: Contemporary Doll Collector Magazine is using a spread from their Gallery section that includes my marionette Monsieur Marmot! He is the figure in the upper left hand corner next to the Gallery banner. (In a side note, my friend Bonnie's doll is just below mine - I am keeping good company!) I am pleased that CDC deems my work worthy of this honor to assist in promoting their publication. This spread is on the homepage for their site, and it can be seen here:
My elf just needs a little more stitching and a wig, so I hope to share pictures of him soon!
