Making dress for 14 inch Bru

I am starting sewing again! It’s been three months since I used sewing needles last time.  I am still unable to lift heavy object with my right arm but recovered enough to be able to sew at least. I never realized how much sewing causes stress on my shoulder and neck muscle till I injured them. I am working cautiously and taking a break every 30 min to avoid over working muscle but I am just so happy that I can finally push needle without much pain.   I will be making a dress for 14 inch Bru first because I love her face and that increases my motivation. I can not create a quality doll if I don’t have that ” wanting” feeling inside of me.   I picked these red antique silk fabrics for her. She is definitely a pink or red kind of girl. I have been feeling bit low for last few months by looking at naked dolls on my desk while I could not work on them. But now I got that excitement back again and want to finish them so badly!

3か月ぶりに、やっと裁縫ができるようになりました! まだ右手で重い物を持ったりはできないのですが、とりあえず針を通す事が出来るまでには回復しました。

Bru Jne 4 head

I completed Bru Jne 4 head to make 14 inch doll. She turned out to have sweet face and I am very pleased. I took photos with Bru Jne 6 head side by side and you can see how different they are. I am taking both of them to sales event in Tokyo this fall.



メトロポリタン美術館では、源氏物語の特別展示を開催していて、古典に混じってなんと大和和紀さんの”あさきゆめみし”の原画が展示されていて、往年のファンとしては原画がみれて感無量。😭 日本の漫画家さんのイラストには芸術的価値があるとかねてより思っていましたが、それが認められたみたいで嬉しいです!私にとってはルノワールと同じくらい価値のある作品です。帰ってきてさっそく”あさきゆめみし”一気読みしています。ほかにも、ロックの殿堂入りしたミュージシャンの貴重な楽器の特別展示があり、あのビートルズのドラム、ギターやジミヘンのギター、イーグルスのダブルヘッドギターなどなど、この機会でなければお目にかかれない名器がゾロリで、よい思い出に。メトロポリタン、やるなー!
