Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last post - colds are rotten,stinky and should not be allowed but your kind words were a breath of fresh air and helped blow it out the window, down the street and hopefully off the edge of a cliff somewhere.
Since last weekend there's been a flurry of activity doll wise. Old no face has turned a corner. With the help of your wonderful advice, an invisible marker and an incredibly shaky hand she slowly developed a little character all of her own. Want to see?
Oh how I have enjoyed regressing to girlhood. What colour ribbon? Hair up or down? Button or flower?
I must admit I think my favourite bit is the old cotton lace on her bloomers!
In typical 'me' fashion though one is never enough.
I was on a roll.
Meet dolly number two.
She's even got a little crochet flower in her hair.
Oh the hair. Poor Mr K. You can imagine the conversations.
'I'm just off out with Jessie dog - do you fancy coming?'
'Oh for goodness sake don't make me talk when I'm concentrating.'
'Why - what are you doing?'
'What does it look like I'm doing?'
'I'm making a wig for dolly.'
Not sure what to do with them now though. I'm thinnnnnnnnkkkkkkking of maybe opening an etsy shop (gulp?) What do you think? Have any of you sold anything through etsy? Would you recommend it?
Anyhooooo I'm off for a lovely Sunday dinner cooked by Mr K (I've requested a large portion of roast potatoes - my desert island food) , followed by a night in front of the fire with my knitting and 'The Musketeers'.
Have a good week everyone - in spite of the weather Spring is definitely on the way!
