Tessie to the Rescue!!!

So much for cleaning and sorting! I should always lock Tessie out before I sort through certain boxes..... This one especially.

It is my "Unfinished dolls and patterns" box. That's what the label says....Tessie said, as soon as she saw the contents, "Oh! Unfinished people! How could you leave half done people cooped up in a plastic box like this? Bad Casey!!!!".

OK. So there are some dolls that I haven't gotten around to dressing and wigging. Is that a crime? Don't answer that. Tessie evidently thinks it is. She is determined to see that they come to life ASAP.

First she got them all out of the box and made them pose for a photo. No matter that they weren't decently dressed. She explained to me that until they are wigged, painted and fully clothed, they won't even be aware of the goings on.

Please don't tell her that there are others of their kind hiding in another box, on a higher shelf.....

The two ladies are some that I bought at a show several years ago and the two kids are some that I started and didn't finish, that I was going to sell at the same show.....Oops. I forgot them all. Poor people. Maybe Tessie is right. They deserve to be finished.

My only question is, who is going to take responsibility for these two. I have a feeling that they are going to get into just about as much trouble as Tessie. I know that she isn't ready for kids...After all, she acts like a six year old most of the time, herself.

I couldn't stand it. When Tessie's back was turned, I looked for the other box. Big mistake.

I found two of Marcia Backstrom's kits that Pat A. gave me. There was also a doll with terrible hands and feet(the reason for not finishing her) and One of the pincushion half dolls from the 20s. That poor little lady has been dressed several times and then undone. All she needs is a new bottom half.

Don't tell Tessie about the extra people. She will want me to finish the clown and he scares me....

Well......I guess I know what I am going to be doing for the next few days until Tessie loses interest. I had better get to work.

See you tomorrow.

LOL, so great you have Tessie to keep an eye on you. Watch her with your miniature scissors though or your dolls might not look exactly they way you planned. Great dolls, so good they are getting out.

That clown scares me too! Hope there is a lock on the box!
Those two kids must certainly be related to Tessie! :)
Check out the feet on the "older" one!

It's fun to see unfinished dolls. I like the two children, I just can imagine what they could do with Tessie ...

Yours are further along than mine! I have molds and still nude, unpainted body parts all over. Painting those tiny faces seems to be beyond my grasp and eyesight.

My theory on the clown thing is most of us were exposed to clowns at a very early age and expected to laugh at this big scary guy with a red nose, coming at us and making weird noises. I know that I didn't like them even back then....Then there was Stephen King's "IT"..... Clowns coming out of the sewer....Bad...LOL
