I have been working away on little Jimmy for quite some time. He has been a slow custom doll, taking shape in his own sweet time and taking an age to decide what he really wanted to wear.
In the end it came down to needing red gum boots, of course. Everyone at some time needs a pair of red gumboots or rainbow gumboots. I had a rainbow pair when I was a child and red ones and for definite and for sure the best adventures came along when I was wearing those boots. We always found the best mushrooms, the best tadpoles and the best blackberries, we built the best bonfires and splashed in the best puddles in those boots.
So Jimmy's time with me is almost up and he will be flying off to his new family. I will miss him I think, it's nice to have a little boy in the work room. I do have a little ginger haired boy in the works though so there will still be a wee lad hanging around.
