Oh! She does have a certain "searching" quality. I would love it if she came to my house.
Congratulations, dear Melinda! We are thrilled for you! Please let's exchange mailing addresses soon and I will send this lonely little girl and her blue dress your way.
To everyone else, thank you so much for playing along. This is the crestfallen moment when I wish I had a girl in a blue dress to give every one of you. Maybe, if I keep drawing and giving her away, someday that will actually happen.
I can assure you, I'm not trying to branch out. I'm not trying to expand my skills. I am just drawing the same little girl, over and over again...
I feel a bit at a crossroads with Tollipop these days. Not that I could ever give it up completely, but I am quite immersed in another writing project, one that means a lot to me. It feels strange to visit here so rarely, to stop sharing my stories about little old men and things which happen on my runs and what my girls say to me...but I have to be realistic (that word makes me wince) about the free time I have and what dreams I am trying to accomplish.
So...I hope the teapot doesn't gather too much dust around here...I will visit as often as I can.
Wishing you a lovely weekend. x
