Yesterday we came home from the coast, finally, after almost 5 months down there! I have mixed feelings about being home though....it was nice to sleep in the big wide bed we have here, as opposed to the regular sized one we have at the coast, and it was lovely to see my friends/neighbours again, but I didn't like the state of the house! Five months of dust on top of all the mess created by my son whilst we've been away!!! Not good.
One plus point was I had several parcels waiting for me, two of which contained the supplies I needed to do my re-root on Bailey, my baldy ex brunette Sasha. So because I didn't want to wear myself out doing too much cleaning all at once ;) I made a start on re-rooting her last night. After several hours again today, she now has all the plug holes of her centre part completely filled!! I probably won't get much done tomorrow as I'm having my own roots done then, but hopefully at the weekend I'll do some more!
I chose a mix of dark blond and light brown for her because I liked how she looked in the wig of a similar colour.
After an hour I'd not got very far. It's a very slow process! And quite demanding on the fingers!! I can certainly understand why re-rooters charge the amount they do for re-rooting a doll!
Todays work - I've put one side into a ponytail to keep it out of the way whilst I'm working on the other side of the parting.
She looks like she has a Mohican here!! I hope I'm not doing it too thick!
And who got to wear the lovely lambswool wig that was previously made for Bailey?
Yes, Vienna, my Volks SD10 Nana, has nabbed the dark brown lambswool wig. I think she looks really lovely in it and it suits her because she is more mature. Also it actually fits much better on her too, there is no dome at the crown, which was what I didn't like about it on Bailey!!
