Ruth

Can you cast your mind back a couple of weeks? You might remember that I was working on a doll for last months 3CS challenge, you might remember that she was nearly done but not quite. Well I finally got round to adding the final embellishments and she's done.Here she is standing in the sun like the proper beach girl she is.I ummed and ahhed about whether she should have hair, but I grew to like her without. She hasn't told me her whole story yet, but she's a maiden of the sea, she looks young but has been haunting the shores for more years that you or I have been alive.She's not one for trinkets but she has a simple necklace made from stars she found on the beach, a shawl made from cast off fishing net, and a simple tie round her waist made from rope she found on her wanderings.

I'm not sure that I am going to be able to participate in this months challenge which is a real shame as the colours are fabulous. I may try and hand stitch up a little something if I get time in the next few days though. We'll see.
