Meet Obadiah

Greetings All,
Meet "Obadiah" servant of Yahweh. This is my latest male friend of the "Darling Divas". I don't make many males because I like dressing the "Divas", but people ask all the time if I make any. I had two doll left in the group that I had cut/sewn, but had not stuffed or dressed and thought why not make them into men so "Rob", the only male that I have would not be alone. The shirt fabric is some of that wonderful fabric by artist/designer/activist Kweli Kitwana and do check her out at: www.africanamericanfabrics.com

Meet Kadijah

Greetings All,
This week's Darling Diva is Kadijah. She name after the television shows character Khadijah James on "Living Single" who was played by Queen Latifah. My Kadijah name is spelled different and I am aware of that. I should have looked before I signed her.

Kadijah is dressed in purple iridescence silk pajama's with matching slippers. She also has on a long vest of African Wax printed cotton and her necklace and earrings are made of glass beads that was a gift of a dear friend.

I shall attempt to create a "Diva" each week until I go out venting later this month and next. You know that I will post if I have anything to post and I still love watching Living Single. See you later and enjoy Kadijah.
