Rediscovering my childhood Perfekta doll. Time for her to no longer be 'not quite forgotten but definitely neglected.
I have shown this little doll a couple of times on my blog. She has been with me since the late sixties and travelled the world - but not as a tourist, just 'in transit' It is time for her to come into her own and get out and about!
She has no clothes except this little dress that I found for her about four years ago. I have no idea what happened to her original clothing - I can only ever remember her being without clothes.
Today I tried on one of the little Xanthe's dresses (my little Ai Jun Planning doll) and was delighted to see it fitted her, so I will make her some of her own.
She needs a full wardrobe, underwear, clothes and shoes and will be my next project.
Poor little thing also needs a name.
I am sure she looks happier already knowing that she is about to experience life again.
My Autumnal Challenge is to make her a wardrobe to be proud of.
It has been pretty wet and dreary today with thunderstorms and heavy rain, but this afternoon the sun has been trying to make an appearance and I found Peggy Sue sitting in the sunshine playing with the Russian dolls.
She is amazed at how many there are...
They keep getting smaller...
She was even surprised to find one eve smaller inside these two.
She counts them.
There are ten altogther!
It is amazing how much enjoyment she got out of playing with these little wooden dolls
