Here is my finished doll

So here is my finished doll that I am taking to Chicago. She is a hanging doll, and I think the pattern is quite versatile that it can be embellished in many ways. While making it I did realise I need to amend the pattern a bit. Which I will do once I am back from the US. I think I might just add a few more beads perhaps to this one. I really don't know what to name her so for the moment she does not have a name.😀 if you can think of one let me know.

Been away

I was away on holiday last week. Really enjoyed it. The fresh air and spectacular scenary was worth going there. Here are some pictures I have to share with you.
The Gronograte peak in the Swiss Alps did not want to show its face to us 😀

Hubby was thrilled to go up the mountain to see the Schilthron as he is a fan of James Bond. This is where they shot the film "On her Majesty's secrete service" The restaurant is not much of a restaurant but the view was amazing from up there. The mountains up close looked magnificent and awe inspiring  .

We did the Great Rail Jounery tour and enjoyed the train ride which took us through hundreds of valleys and over several bridges. The panoramic train was really nice. The only thing that we did not like was the hotels. They said it would be 4 star hotels but they were jus under 3 star I think. But all in all we enjoyed ourselves.

A doll in the making

A doll in the making. I am hoping to go for a doll workshop in the US so I am making a doll for that. Hope I can finish her soon. If it turns out the way I want it to I might make a pattern available. It is going to be a hanging doll so it's going to be pretty simple and easy.

Feel like a child

Today I want to show you some very cute pop up books that I bought. I feel like a little child when I look at them. I think any child would really enjoy these books. Here are some pages from the books. They have so many pockets of tiny pop ups which is a joy to open and look.

This cute little nursery rhyme book I found in a charity shop. I love the illustrations in it.  A lot of inspirations for dolls I think 😀
