Rag doll progress

Ok so its not really Autumn Wardrobe sewing, but I have made some progress on my first ever rag doll, a gift for my friend's baby daughter (requested).
Poor dolly has a slightly square head, presumably due to me not sewing smoothly around the curve. Fortunately she'll have hair in bunches which will cover this area, and she'll hopefully look OK.
If she comes out scary, she'll be the test dolly and a new one will be made.
She'll also look better when her legs are sewn to her body and she has eyes etc, but Rome wasn't built in a day and I reckon a dolly takes at least a week :-)

Off topic, but I wanted to tell you that I very much appreciated your comments about Santa and Christmas tradition on the PR boards!

You're absolutely right...a Santa story is a mighty poor substitute for the glory of God becoming man and making His dwelling on earth and in our hearts!
