Since the beginning of July I have been slowly and quietly working on a collection of dolls with the aim to have them ready for a market I’m doing with my daughter at the end of November. Not that they will sell at the market, most people don’t go to handmade markets to spend a lot of money, well not here in Tasmania anyway but it will be fun spending the day with Katie. As the dolls are finished I will preview them here on the blog and on Instagram, Facebook and in my newsletter. I am happy to reserve dolls and ship them straight after the market. I’ll let you know the details of how this will be organised when the first group are ready to share.
I have been enjoying the process of getting this collection together but this final part, the dressing of the dolls has me flipping and flopping from one idea to the next and back again. It’s funny though, when I look back at my original notes and inspirations for each doll, written so long ago now that I had forgotten the details, my flipping and flopping almost always leads me back to the place I started.
We are having a spectacularly beautiful spring this year and when I’m not busy with my dolls I’m usually in the garden. This is the best time, now until late November while everything is still green. Once the lawn starts to dry out as it always does the garden loses its lushness.
Hope you’re enjoying your springtime or autumn,
both are such pretty times of the year. xx
