Entry #2

Contender: Merrow

Event: Long Distance Swimmer

Pattern: Pearl Nymph by Kathy Hays

I changed a few things on the pattern. I made her tail 2 1/2 inches longer and placed it lower on her body, because she has such a cute tush. I also don't like mitt fingered hands so I gave her regular hands. Her upper body is made from doesuede and her face is painted with acrylics. She is also adorned with real eye lashes. She is named Merrow which means Mermaid in Irish. Merrow swam all the way from Ireland to compete.

Entry #3

Contender: Forget-Me-Not and Lily

Event: Synchronized Daydreaming

Pattern: Wattle Nymph by Ann Clemens

This has been an official Faery Olympic event for many years. Synchronized Daydreaming requires two faeries who can tune into each other. If one faery falls asleep, the competition ends. The gold goes to the team that can stay awake and smiling for the longest time. Four years ago, the winning time was four days, four hours, four minutes, and three seconds. It looks like the record will fall this year!

She is totally gessoed and hand painted - but she looks so old and lovely!! The outfit is "heirloom" style as befitting such an old fashioned beauty!! She is the third cloth doll I've ever made so I am kind of proud of this one!!
