Keira - Natural Fiber Art doll

16 INCH DOLL

    Hooray! My dolly corner is not empty these days! I have Keira! She is such great companion.
Working on this 16 inches tall Natural Fiber Art doll had been truly a journey.

    For Keira I wanted to document every single minute I spend on her creation to later analyse what is going on with my time management and to actually see how many hours have been spent on a single doll. Let me tell you straight away - this was very ambitious! Admittedly I have been trying to take notes every minute when I started to shape her head and prepare her hair until I have got to the point of embroidering eyes, and after that, I just dived so deep in her creation and completely forgot to take notes on my time-spend.
Sadly I failed with the experiment but the good thing is I still have got some valuable pieces of information to think about.

    Creation of Keira started on 15th of September and I have been taking notes of every minute I worked on her for 6 days only. The results are quite embarrassing to me. To shape doll's head and get her hair ready I spent .... (TA-DA-DA-DA) ... are you ready to hear?! - just 9 hours and 5 minutes!
From one point of view, this time spent on the head sculpting is quite good and on the other hand, I have found out that during 6 days I only worked for a bit more than 9 hours. This was a shocking discovery for me! I never ever before thought about my time input in exact hours and only noticed the number of days or weeks spent on a single doll. This little experiment showed me that I ought to take some real action for my time management in the nearest future. 

    And what about Keira?! She is a pure joy for me, totally different from my previous dolls, it was so funny to look at her in the first days, she was like a stranger in my house though pretty one. Right now I am fully accepting her existence and can say that she is mine! Somehow it is important for me.

    Her nack has wire inside, I love that the doll can move her head. Recently I have been trying to do dolls with and without a wire in their necks and found out that I really like the ability of doll's head to move, I think it is a great addition for collector's doll.

    Keira loves clothes! First, she has got for herself pyjama and then she wanted to have some roomy overall, long sleeve tee, knitted boots and cardy and when I thought she has already everything Keira asks for a skirt with suspenders and knitted beret. I couldn't say "No" to this girl, just couldn't.
You are welcome to find more photos of Keira below or in my gallery.

    I wasn't rushing to find a new home for Keira and just took some time to have a better connection with her because I needed it as she became a part of my life for a few weeks. It will be really hard to part with her... but as soon as this post get published it will be the time to start looking for her new mum. So, don't forget to check my Etsy store if you love Keira and want to see her in your dolly corner ;)
