A pair of 1950's girls with vintage doilies for skirts.
Lots of embroidery, done on my machine, on their hair and shoes.
This denim girl is feeling lonely as I sold her sister today. Didn't even get chance to take a picture. She's been snapped up and is now living in my friend Julia's camper van.
Nothing gets wasted, middle of the doily used as a hair decoration.
Close up of the denim diva. I've made the arms a bit longer and soft stuffed them so you can fold them.
Oh and they also now have knees, this really makes them easier to pose, but harder to stuff. You have to leave a small gap at the knee, its easy to forget and then you have to un-stuff a narrow leg!!!
Denim Diva just had to show you how nicely she can cross her legs.
I've got a new tool for stuffing the legs, a wooden chop stick. It's really good, narrow and pointy one end and wider and square at the other. It's also longer than the previous tool, a size 10 crochet hook.
I've got 6 legs and 6 arms stuffed and ready for the next 3 dolls.
Just to let you all know my eyes have responded well to the new drops. I've got into a routine with the 7 doses of drops and am getting better at putting them in my eye and not on my cheek. Tomorrow I go down to 6 doses. Now what shall I do with those few extra minutes?
Thank you all for your messages, prayers and support.
