Recently I traded Dot Christian from Australia some bird beads for a Dotee Bird and egg. Woohoo! am i one happy camper! Dot is famous for her Dotee Dolls, and although I've seen imitations, I had never seen an original before.
I HAD NO IDEA how detailed and fantastic they are! Just look!
That is all teeny tiny hand embroidery and beading. Look at the close up of the egg below:
...and this is from the birds body. those little flowers are each sewn on, and they are itsy bitsy. The whole bird is only about 5 inches across!
aren't those baby stars (in the right corner) just wonderful?
BUT WAIT...there was more - Dot also sent me, as an EXTRA - a DOTEE DOLL!
Isn't she gorgeous?
LOOK AT THE HAND SEWN DETAILS!
Dot also sent me some beautiful postcards with pictures of some of her other artwork.
I am so thrilled and delighted!
