Back to WORK!!!

This is suppose to be my "Special Order" dollie.......well part of it. I was almost done and stained the dollie and now look!! She is all "SPLOTCHY". I can not and will not sell her on a special order. I don't know why it has done this. I am doing everything the same as always...

If any of you have any suggestions as to why it has gotten "splotchy" and any cures for the future, do tell. I wanted to send it out to my customer today, I just had to dress her, needle felt her hair, stitch her lips and put the finishing touches to her. How very frustrating. I hate to make her wait, but I can not give her a doll that looks like this.

Then tomorrow is the 4th of July Parade and then Fireworks the next day and maybe doing something else with my family during the day before hubby goes to work. I just feel so terrible I am not done, because my customer has waited long enough.

I just thought I would post this to let you all know what I have been up too. I have a couple of more special orders in line....one the end of July and one the end of August, after those are completed I honestly don't know if I will be doing any more special orders. Sad but true. I hope you all have a great day...as for me, back to work!!

Peaceful Blessings to you all, ~Tonya

That's happened to me too, Tonya...I don't mind when they come out splotchy, they just look more extremely Prim...You can do what Annie suggested, make her a black dollie...I think anything you do will turn out great!!:o)

Well Thank you for the comments. I am sure I can do something with her. I just can not use her for a special order, when no splotches where expected :o)
