Dolly with a Red Dress On

Today I made a single feature dolly, using Barb's instructions from yesterday's class. This piece is much larger. The single blocks yesterday were about 5 by 8 inches. This piece is 14 by 22 inches. I gave her grey hair so she would look like me, and you know, I do have a really small head, so maybe this pinhead is a likeness ;-)
