It’s December! Yay! I almost enjoy these casual days preceding the holiday week more than the holiday week itself. Almost…
I’m still not sure how it’s December already but the calendar tells me it is. I am making a promise to myself this year that I will enjoy each and every one of these December days of Advent, and not succumb to any feelings of stress. Easier said than done? I hope not.
I have finished with Christmas doll ensemble making for this year. My final sets will be in my little online shop Sunday night at 7:00 pm CST. Here is a little preview for you.
Lovely and sweet Rose (Boneka/Effner) has a second festive set to show you for the year. She is dressed in a cotton Japanese print dress with English cotton Cluny lace hemline edging. A cardigan hand knit in merino/silk lace yarn with bullion heart and lazy daisy neckline embroidery keeps her toasty warm. A Peruvian Highland wool stocking cap adds the necessary merriment to her look. And Rose has a gift for you, a tiny Christmas tree with a mother-of-pearl heart for the tippy top. Won’t you accept Rose’s gift this season?
Did you know that Amelia Thimble fits in perfectly with 1:12 dollhouse miniatures? Here she is on an ornament with Ivy from Warm Heart Bears. They’re just a wee bit adorable, don’t you think?
Amelia Thimble is spreading holiday cheer by jingling her jingle bell whenever she feels like it, which is quite often, I might add. Between her and Sugar jingling away, my studio has never sounded cheerier.
Ivy reluctantly gave Amelia Thimble back her Santa hat; after all it’s part of this hand made set.
The jingle bell comes with the set too. It fits over Amelia’s hand and will not easily slip off. If you’d like to knit your own tiny dress for your Amelia Thimble or as an ornament, here is the link to the pattern.
Sugar (Fairyland Pukipuki) is looking mighty adorable this year too. Sugar is pulling a miniature sleigh filled with all kinds and colors of jingling bells. If you need a bell this year, Sugar has one for you. Sugar’s ensemble includes her sweater dress and Santa hat. BTW, the jingle bell at the tip of her hat clings to her magnetic palm.
Here is a photo from a previous year just so you can see how much Sugar and Amelia Thimble love one another. (Sugar also fits in well with miniatures and Christmas ornaments.)
Wishing you all a sweet start to December! Enjoy, my friends!
“Holiday Hugs” for Rose, “Merry Li’l Elf” for Amelia Thimble, and “Jingle All The Way” for Pukipuki will all be available Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
