Marie Antoinette Doll

Yesterday i finished making my marie antoinette doll which is for sale in etsy

It has taken me many many hours of sewing each individual glass bead of which there are hundreds. it is completely handsewn throughout.

I started this doll before Ernie died, and i bet he would be pleased with the result as much as i am.

Hope you like her xxxx

On the 24th June my darling beloved husband Ernie passed away in my arms.

I have never felt such pain in my life, and at the moment cannot focus on anything except just getting by each day. I have lost my zest for life and art, and just hope that this ache in my heart will go away, so that i can at least face the future without him.

Here is the last photo of Ernie taken at his 65th Birthday party, on the 22nd May 2009, which he celebrated along with our Grandson Bobby, who was 13 years old that same day.

GOD BLESS YOU ERNIE, and I hope that we will meet again one day my precious.
