Ye gods (and goddesses)! It's 92 degrees here in northeast Indiana -- too hot to do anything but sit in front of the fan and work on my dolls. The cats and my sister's dog (I'm babysitting) are lolling on my bed like southern belles at a Tara barbecue. There's definitely an icy gin & tonic in my future.

Here is a photo of my latest project, the goddess Bast. I'm really happy with her feline face and the gold collar and sistrum (that's an ancient Egyptian rattle) I made for her. Now I just have to dress her and do her hair. The doll is based on a number of ancient statues of the goddess made in metal, clay and stone, altho most ancient representations of the goddess showed her with the head of a cat.
