*Update* New Pattern Available Look only if you like more extreme primitive

Ok first a story...Two years ago I was making this dolls head, and my older daughter , Ashley BEGGED me to do a doll with freckles ( like her)....Well the doll was allready looking more extreme prim but when I added freckles, I decided to keep her more "ugly" to be funny...Ashley thought it was cute , but I never made a body or anything..this headless doll floated around my craft room for 2 years now...
So...yesterday, I decided to finish her up and keep her "ugly" unlike my daughter Ashley ( she really is a pretty thing)
AND...I started making up the pattern for her also...
Sooooo...what do you think? go with the pattern???... or No..she is too ugly ???What ?

Primitive Halloween Ashley Annie
