The Journey so far...

It's funny what happens when you start a craft journey like the one I have been on. It never ends... always evolving, changing with new ideas and inspirations to guide your way. Eventually you arrive at a point where your work is identifiable as uniquely 'yours'.

I will never stop evolving that's for sure. But I think my knitted dolls have arrived at their destination. New ideas from this point will be more about new clothing and hair, rather than doll design.

I am sure I will be inspired to design more dolls, but they will be a new line. My knitted dolls will always be the original... the ones that started it all.

I have come a long way from this...

To this...
...and finally arriving to these...

New Playsuits!

Willow and Hattie love their new knitted playsuits. Esme is still trying to decide what colour she wants for hers... hopefully she won't dilly dally too long so she can join her friends. <3

Millicent (Millie)... My little 10 inch knitted doll...

I named her Millicent... it took forever to find her name, one that would stick. She tried out a few different ones but they just didn't seem to suit.

Finally, she whispered in my ear... "My name is Millicent, call me Millie".

She then told me that she wanted some woollen pants...
...and maybe some warmer clothes for when it got cold.
"Ok darling, anything for you my sweet."

Hattie... again...

Hattie has been hanging out with me all week ... helping me sew up the biggest pile of doll clothes EVER. I'm trying to get all the different sets ready for the Christmas season and it's a huge task.

Taking pretty photos like this makes it all worthwhile though.

Hattie the knitted doll was finished today. I love her corkscrew curls and pigeon toes.

I also love the wooden toy bench in these pics! It was a great find.

Esme the knitted Doll is settling in quite well to the Stoneleigh household. She has got herself some new dolly outfits and is best friends with Willow. She even volunteered to model some 70's style retro flares for me. She's a good girl.
