Greg Finished His Hitty&I Got My TDIPT Swap!

Alot has been going on,these last couple of days!Greg has finally finished his Hitty doll&I just love her!He went the extra mile,&made her a Penny Wooden style doll&bench,like the real Hitty has.He hand~carved both dolls entirely,using no kits,or blanks.He also did all the painting&aging,using his own techniques that he has come up with.I think he did such a wonderful job!In my eyes,he is a true Folk Artist!She is up for auction now,on eBay.

Here is the pic of the real Hitty,that inspired him~
(These pictures were taken from the fabulous website Hitty.org.It is a fabulous place to go to learn everything you need to know about Hitty,and it is full of incredible pictures of the original doll!



And here is his finished work~








Here are a couple more pics of the original Hitty~
