cushion envy

how do you like this little beauty? i love the contrast of the orange pompoms and the purple hounds tooth.

This was in my sisters shop, not perfect but nice and she knew i had been coveting it for some time! Next time you have to move faster!! ;0)

quick fix!

today we have a wedding to go to, and i have been working on my dress (more photos on that later.. it looks a bit weird, like i am wearing it backwards..anyway)

i totally forgot that Poppy will come with us to the wedding in the church, and didn't think of what she could wear!

So, thanks to my sister who very generously given Poppy some really lovely pieces of clothing, i had this lovely top! However, it is still pretty big for her, so i have quickly sewn on two buttons, and she will wear it like a dress..

whew that was close!

this weekend, we had a rare visit from my sister and her family.

It was a tight squeeze but it was so lovely to spend time with family and just enjoy each others company! i wish we lived closer...

Daisy was meant to be Emily's twin.

You can see the family resemblance, but truth be told, Daisy is a lot more shy and blushes even easier that Emily.

Daisy loves candy floss, and will not share it with anyone. If she sees someone coming who might wants some, she shoves it all in her mouth and keeps her mouth tightly shut so no one will guess her mouth is full of Candy floss.

She wears a little blue bikini, and hopes to get a little bit of sun, but like Emily, she is Irish and burns very easily. I hope she is wearing sun cream....

genius or nuts?

in my quest to teach myself how to make a basic pattern from scratch, i have taken Emily to be my tiny mini model.

I have taken her measurements and am now trying to learn how to sketch a basic bodice for her.

What dolly do you know that has tailored clothing? I feel like i'm a kid again!
