Hello my Lovelies…I’m back again!
Why not grab yourself a chair, pour yourself a cuppa and settle for a little catch up with me ?!
The last couple of weeks have been really busy around here. I have started a new part time job, which has meant learning a huge amount in a very short space of time in a very busy environment…..worlds away from the quiet tranquility of Shedquarters…. this means that by late evening its hard to keep my little peepers open!!
All is good though…they have been very lovely, helped me out and made me feel extremely welcome. The bonus of course, is that my new hours mean I can still dedicate time to my little world of shed working and continue on my creative pathway 🙂
With this in mind, those curly girls have been popping off of the hook, and I have been absolutely delighted that they have all found new homes so soon. I love making the curly girls……I get to play with colours for hair, dresses and accessories….so it really is a delight….
Hildy and Hoot were a joy to make. I loved the mix of pink, red and mauve, and Hildy’s hair was a glorious combination of deepest fuchsia, cerise and almost scarlet.
Hildy is meant to wear her glasses, but much like me, is a little naughty about it. The world in HD is better than a blurred viewpoint though Hildy, and finally glasses are apparently cool 🙂
Hildy and Hoot found their forever home, I am delighted to say and I was thrilled that the recipient took the time to leave some lovely feedback, which is always really appreciated ……
“Hilda and Hoot are both adorable, thank you! I originally bought for my SILs birthday but tempted to keep them….. Thank you again, I love your creations!”
Next off of the hook was Clover…
She was such a little poppet. This time I left the dress short like a tunic, so her little gingham bloomers were more visible. I love this look….it reminded me of when the girls had just started cruising….that bit between crawling and walking….and shorter dresses were more practical so that they didn’t trip. Clover’s hair colour was so pretty….soft tones, yet bright. Trimmed a little shorter into a bubble cut….it’s just so cute!
There are little peach highlights, that break up the colour too. Now if I had hair like this, I wouldn’t want to get it wet, so it just made sense that she should have a brolly….
All together I just love the colours…..and yes….pink is probably my favourite colour.
Now this little one really needed a sister. The lovely recipients would indeed be two sisters, so it only made sense that Clover would travel with Chloe….her sister.
And so Chloe came along. Mirroring Clover so much, with her tunic, bloomers and sneakers, she was the same and yet different…..
I don’t have siblings of my own, but I see so much love and laughter between my own girls, that I dearly hope that these two find that special bond too. That feeling of knowing that someone has your back…..
And someone to share those silly moments when you get the giggles…..
So, yes……it was important to get the ‘sister’ dolls to work individually and as a pair….
As the sun has finally decided to shine, the heater can be switched off in the shed, and we can be warmed by the power of sunshine. I have a really pretty doll almost finished with lilac hair….she is a sweetie. So I am happily thinking of the right name while I finish off her dress.
I have treated myself to some new 4ply sock yarns, so that I can knit up some dresses and jackets. I will have some Waldorf inspired Suitcase dolls available for mid October too, especially as ‘that’ time of year is creeping up on us again.
This afternoon, it is a cup of coffee and a spot of knitting for me!
Hope you have a lovely day too…..thanks for stopping by xxx
