1/12th Comfy Granny

First things first....I have a new posh pink laptop....but 'bits' are still being sorted.....

Obviously I can't sort toffee....so I rely on someone else. As I post this, I appear to have 'lost ' my photoshop facility, upon which I depend, to chop off bits of rubbish pictures etc.
However I did promise I'd post a picture of my latest 1/12th character, who is a nice cheery comfortable Granny or Nana, depending which part of the country you live in....
So here she is, waiting to get posted off to her new home ' abroad' - very scary for a rather retiring lady!

There's rather too much background - and not enough Granny - but you get the idea.

Having seen her close up in real life this afternoon.....I have to say she is fab! What you can't really see in the photo is her amazing curly hair! Great stuff Robin.Celia

Thank you all...what a lovely ego-boost on a freezing cold day!
In an earlier life, her hair was keeping a fat little sheep warm.Lol.

She is lovely and I love her outfit and shoes - your dolls really are wonderful! I sympathise over the loss of Photoshop, I am a Photoshop addict! As a quick fix you could download free (if it did not come ready loaded on your laptop) Picasa 3 - you can crop on that. Mind you, I didn't even notice the background. :-)

Phew - I've now got (not Picasa, but thanks Pan)an alternative, so once I get my head around it I can crop and tweak again and I'm a happy bunny.
