Thank You All So Much

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for the support and condolences since my last post about my dad passing.  It helps more than you could possibly know, so thank you so very much.  Even if you didn’t leave a comment, thank you for reading my post.  My dad will continue to live on in my heart.

One of my last dear memories of my dad was from this past December when he commented on how he visited my blog and got caught up as to what I was doing and making; he said he was proud of me.  I’ll never forget the fact that he took the time to see what I was doing even though dolls held no interest for him.  He was such a dear!

When I got home on Wednesday I had two new packets of goodies to have fun with:  four new wigs and three sets of eyes.  Right away I had to try something on Penny.  Here she is  wearing a Kemper Giselle wig in blonde and Eyeco platinum eyes in Lady Blue.  I wasn’t sure of the shade of blonde this wig would actually be; it’s the same color as Helen Kish’s Riley doll’s hair!  The eyes are a deep blue violet, really pretty.  I guess one of my favorite new pastimes is giving Penny a new look, she looks cute so many ways.

Yesterday I embroidered a mohair cardigan for the Little Darlings.  I’ve had this sweater knit since my last trip to Florida and had made the dress when I got home in mid January.  Most likely this ensemble will go on record for taking the longest to complete.  As of Friday afternoon, it still isn’t finished.

Today, I did a little straightening up in my sewing room and found a couple of things for Amelia Thimble and Izzy , and my Pukipuki’s first dress that I made for her.  I was in the mood for something lighthearted and cutesy, so I had a little photo shoot with them.

Amelia Thimble wanted to play with my music box gramophone ( a vintage piece from my grandma).  She had no idea what a gramophone was, so I had to explain it to her.  Amelia thought that the ‘funnest’ part was when her teddy bear got a ‘ride’ on the record.

Little Izzy loves her super soft floor puppy pillow.  Oh, and there’s that silly rabbit again; he’s always trying to photobomb every photo.
