Here are a couple of shots from inside my studio this past week. My desk photo shows my two projects that I had going on towards the end of the week. Patience’s outfit is finished, but I am still knitting the dress for the Little Darlings; lots of stitches in this one. Amelia Thimble and Izzy have been hanging out with Bella (my Bo Bergemann Dream Doll). She is happy to have the little ones to keep her company.
This weather this past week in northern Illinois was quite perfect. Some days were a bit warmer than others, but all were sunny! Since yesterday felt like summer I had to get out for a nice long walk. I brought along my iPhone to capture spring’s progress out and about.
This weeping willow looked so pretty with its yellow green buds against the blue sky. I found clumps of squill growing along the side of the road; they’re so tiny and blue.
These are our daffodils in full bloom.
Our largest magnolia tree looks snowy when in bloom.
I love our pink magnolia tree, the blossom’s colors are gorgeous. Today I finished Patience’s outfit and thought the tree would be the perfect backdrop for a couple of photos.
I placed an order for some new Kemper mohair wigs a couple of months ago and wanted to share them with you. I am always amazed at the way a change in wig changes a doll’s look. I prefer mohair because the strands stay where you put them and I just prefer natural fibers. Kemper’s prices are very reasonable for these wigs and they arrived quickly.
The Tomboy wig is the only wig in my order that I thought I would never use. However, I found it looks adorable on my Little Darling when she is wearing a hat. It is in size 7″- 8″ (roomy, not tight) and in auburn.
I also ordered this Hannah mohair wig. I think it is very cute on my Little Darling. I haven’t yet styled it too much. It arrived in these spiral curls, instead of the waves like their website shows on Bleuette. I ordered the size 7″- 8″ for a roomy fit in the light brown color. For some reason this size and color are priced lower than other sizes and colors.
Lastly, I ordered Giselle wigs in pale pale blonde and medium brown (7″- 8″). I love pageboy bobs on my dolls. This style is thinned out, which I like. When these wigs arrived they needed some trimming to even out the shape and the blonde needed even more trimming than the brown color.
These wigs also fit my Remy Macy doll and my Bergemann Dream Doll.
