Quilt, paint or make arms?

The butler finally has a bride. So much to do and so little time to do it. Quilt, paint or make arms for the bride?

Every time I see this dress it makes me think of my friend Carol. She made the dress for a Titanic dinner party and then retired it to this dress form. It stood in her guest room for years until she gave it to me a couple weeks ago. She's a life saver as I didn't know where I was going to find the time to make a period dress. I rolled it into the Halloween room and saw my Butler holding the head Chad bought me. YES! The perfect match. Now all I have to do is make/buy her arms. I think they make a cute couple. Don't you = )

She is a huge improvement over his first wife, who's bubble wrap body with slightly square bosoms kept sliding down her pole. I'll repurpose the pole with a clown for the nursery.
