Remember that handful of dresses in one of the previous posts? Well, here they are completed. I needed to photograph the dresses as a group. I am a color nut and love seeing them all together. Just yummy!!!
I took a picture of all of the hats together too. I have these small old wooden spools of silk thread and thimbles. They show just how tiny these hat are.
Here are some pictures of Amelia modeling the dresses.
By the time she had on the 4th dress she needed a break and sat down. I really couldn’t get her to stand up anymore. (honest)
Then, after a pep talk from me she put on the last dress and gave me a beautiful, if tired smile. She had quite a day.
There’s been a lot of excitement over here having to do with our apple tree. After six seasons living here (the tree is much older) we have apples. Now they are not the most beautiful apples, but they are apples that we can actually eat. Anyway, teeny tiny 4″ Amelia Thimble couldn’t contain the excitement in her bitsy doll body and wanted to experience the apple tree for herself. She is such an agile little thing and held on tight the whole time. I grabbed some pictures of her climbing amongst the apples. Thought I’d share these with you. She looks quite proud of herself, doesn’t she?
Half a dozen Amelia Thimble knit dress sets are hot off my knitting needles. They are so tiny that all 12 pieces fit in the palm of my hand. I thought they looked cute all bunched together and wanted to share a picture. Now for the time consuming part, making them all extra special with hand embroidery.
Here are the dresses and hats on my blocking board. They get dampened with water and then pinned down to get rid of that curling you see in the picture above. Once they are dry the dresses and hat are nice and curl free.
