Stoneleigh Dolls

Monday, 10 February 2014


A number of my knitted dolls become permanent residents here at Stoneleigh House. I tell myself that I need models for patterns and photos, but in reality these are the dolls I design for myself simply because I want them...

This is Matilda. She is a little bit special due to being named after a much loved red boxer doggie (with huge brown eyes) who passed away just before I made her.


Matilda loves life and is always happy and smiling. She loves to dance around the house and would love it if I made her some really colourful clothes and shoes. (I will I promise).

So far she has managed to get me to make her three dresses and a pair of shoes.

The shoes and the multi- coloured dress were her Christmas presents.

She likes to keep me company on the work desk while I am working on other things.

The red dress wasn't supposed to be hers but it suited her so well that eventually I let her have it.

Matilda feels a little bit left out as Polly and Penny are best friends and sometimes she feels like the third wheel... something tells me that will soon change though!

Until next time...
