This is my dear friends childhood doll.
She has been packed away for years needing some TLC.
Recently she was taken to hospital and got a new arm and lovely new blond curly hair.
Then she came to me without any clothes
Could I please dress her?
The first thing I made for her was a petticoat and pantaloons
Because my friend said that she was originally dressed in blue
I thought,blue it had to be then.
I so enjoyed dressing her,I think she is so sweet.
What about those blue eyes,are they not striking?
I think blue had to be her colour.
Now a few months ago, I introduced you to my new/very old doll Dorothy
Dorothy came to me in her original dress and I bought her new shoes.
Now when Dorothy met her new friend Rosemary, and saw her beautiful new dress,she smiled, her usual sweet smile,but I knew she would like a new one too.
After all, a girl has to have more than one dress in her wardrobe.
Well look at her now. WOW
No mistaking her new happy smile.
Because Dorothy also has beautiful blue eyes,
Her new dress is blue too. Of cause in a different fabric.
Now everyone wanted a new outfit.
So,out came the knitting needles and Linda got a new one too.
You can see Dorothy having a little rest while waiting for her new outfit to be fitted.
It was a little cool,so she put on her cardigan
Linda was my daughters childhood dolly
For some reason, they all want to come and stay with Nanny.
Secretly,I think it's for the new clothes and the company
I think there will be a lot more outfits to make in the coming weeks. Especially when the Teddies come out of hibernation.
Teddy boy has a new cardigan,but his friends are still asleep.
When he heard we were taking tea,he didn't want to miss out.
Now I think it's time to take tea together.
Freshly baked orange cake, I think.
After all,no use having a new outfit with nowhere to go.
Dear Rosemary had to leave early for another appointment.
I'm looking for a little china dolly tea set. So far a nice one has alluded me.
So my friends chose the English Elizabethan from my collection.
We are all going to visit our friends at the following parties this week
