Daisy Chains

Peggy Sue and Janice have been making daisy chains

Do you think I look pretty?  Peggy Sue asks.

Watch me twirl!  

Janice watches Peggy Sue twirl with delight with her daisy chain crown on her head.

I thought I would post a picture of my three handmade dolls.

May Flower, Alice and Patsy

Peggy Sue has been out in the garden today.

Peggy Sue is delighted about how well her flower wheelbarrow is growing!

How does YOUR garden grow?

Daydreaming on a Monday

I made Ruby a new dress today which she declared was perfect for wearing on a lovely sunny Monday afternoon.

I made a little headband to match, but you can't really see it in these photos.

I wonder if she made any daisy chains or just sat and dreamt?


Peggy Sue was taking her 'babies' out for a walk.

Music Making

There has been much music making happening this weekend.

Ruby has heard there will be a concert in the summer and has started to prepare her pieces in the hope she will get a chance to perform.

She seemed to be at the piano each day.

It is good to see her so passionate about her music.

Elsewhere in the cottage...

Peggy Sue was delighted to find Alice who had been 'missing' for a while.

She just loves her rag doll.

Flowers on Friday and a friend comes round to play.

Ruby explores the garden.  She is delighted to see the 'transplanted' forget-me-nots are thriving.

She is wearing a newly designed by myself sweater.

The rhododendrons are lovely and she is amazed at their beauty

May Flower also wanted her photo taken with the rhododendrons.

As did sweet Peggy Sue!

Peggy Sue had her friend Princess Addison round to play this afternoon.

She showed her the flowers

Princess Addison enjoyed the swing!

Look more forget-me-nots Peggy Sue! Princess Addison said.

The two girls enjoyed their time playing together.

Wren meets a friend.

Wren attended the Sasha Celebration Weekend with me as we were hopeful that her friend would be there...she was in luck!

They meet for the first time.

Isabel can't quite believe it.

They welcome each other with open arms.

It is almost like looking in a mirror...they are similar but different and feel like they have known each other for ever.

They embrace. 

A little later....Wren is aghast as Isabel samples the wine...needless to say Isabel was not feeling very well later in the evening!

To see what happened to poor Isabel, click here.

Friday Favourites

A few pictures of my BJD girl who I think is going to be called Ruby, as to me she is a real gem!

The cherry blossom is falling and May Flower is enjoying sitting amongst the petals.

Sunny Sunday in the Garden.

I just love days like we have been having...the sun is shining and it is lovely and warm.  Perfect for spending time in the garden.  

Norma Jean enjoys her time in the garden and thinks the flowers are so pretty.

Anne-Marie spends some time reading a favourite book.

May Flower, just enjoys sitting by the tree.

I finished a dress last night - it was a pattern for a Les Cheries doll.

It fits Clara well, but I prefer slightly shorter dresses on her, so I will make another that is shorter.

She looks so pretty in this colour - fortunately I believe I have enough yarn left to make another.

Miss Still Waiting to be Officially Named tries on the is not a bad fit for her either.

I like that I can use patterns for Les Cheries for this girl - it means with slightly alterations I have more patterns available to make her things.
