While Debbie and Tori chatted about their outfits, Anais motioned to Wren to follow her. Wren knew she was up to something, and sure enough, Anais was looking at the next doll to rescue. On the other end of the table, Debbie and Tori were sitll conversing about their outfits. “Are you sure you want […]

Before Wren or Debbie could reply, Anais turned and walked to the edge of the box pile. “This looks like a good place to start,” she said, peering up at the column of boxes beneath her own transparent display cabinet. “I wonder… ah, there she is.” “Who’s she?” asked Wren. “Tori, the Victorian young lady.

Here’s Chenoa with her warm woolly cardigan. I crocheted it with the very special superwash merino wool I’ve been planning to use up (there’s still so much left!).

Chenoa has been asking me — very politely, but insistently — for new seasonal outfits, to keep her warm as the temperatures drop. So here’s what I made, for a start (back when the weather was still relatively warmer): a crochet short-sleeve dress, hat with a happy sunflower embellishment, and a long-sleeve cardigan, which I […]

(Word and photo heavy! Pictures are farther down.) This post has been a long time coming. To be honest, I never thought it would happen. After months of waiting, and years of admiring from afar, my Little Darling has arrived! I can’t help but be in awe every time I look at her. Her expression […]
