My next project was the Etsy Dollmakers Team challenge for January- a purple and gold doll. I made another of my big-eyed cat dolls, but to make this one special, and because of the challenge colors and the time of year, I made her a Mardi Gras cat, so she's wearing a little felt bandit mask with feathers. I named her Martine, and I think she's pretty cute.

Teacup Fascinators and a Mardi Gras Cat
Our weather hasn't been great around here lately. First snow, then torrential rains, complete with flooding on major roads. On my way to work last Wednesday I counted eleven places where water was visibly flowing across the road, six of them on the highway! But if bad weather is good for one thing, it's for staying home and getting things done. I have had a great time making my teacup fascinators, and I've been getting a very positive response to them on Etsy. Now I just have to plan a Mad Hatter tea party!
