I just realised that I've not posted anything on my blog since the 17th June, my poor blog has been getting neglected by 'real life'!!! That's not good! It's not lack of interest, or lack of photos, I have both of those, I've really just not had time recently.
My son Brendan and his lovely fiance have just been here in Spain for a few days sorting out more of their wedding plans, I cannot believe how quickly the year has gone since they announced the date of their wedding and how now it is just under two months until their big day......I don't suppose there's time now to lose the 2 stone in weight that I planned last September, is there? Oh well!!
On the dolly front I have been selling some dolls and doing some sewing. I've been working on commissions, a couple of birthday gifts, a thank you pressie and a couple of things for my own dolls. At the moment my dolls are in a big heap, as those of you who read Dee's Sasha Village blog will have seen. I had to clear them all off the spare bed for my son's visit as I now use his bedroom at the coast for my dolls and sewing when we are down here.
I need to show you the second part of my 'Playing the Tourist in Malaga' post and will get to that soon but might wait until next week when I am meeting up with a dolly person in Malaga and she's going to show me her favourite place in the city.....mustn't forget the camera :)
So to make this not just a 'words' post, here are some photos I've taken recently:
I made this cream summer dress for Leoni my Zwergnase Junior Violet. I thought I'd use my sewing machine to embroider the pansies on the bodice and think the colour of the flowers works really well for her.
A close up of the machine embroidery, I really enjoy using this function of my machine but just don't get to use it enough!
I made this blue and white summer set, plus the shoes, for my friend's Little Darling as a 'thank you' to her for helping me out with a couple of things :)
I made this set for a lovely lady in Switzerland :
I also took Tanya, my Maru & Friends girl, out for a nice Sunday morning stroll....we went to Lake Viñuela and the Hotel Viñuela which was in the throes of being decorated for a wedding being held later that day. The grounds are beautiful, to match the hotel, so I'm not surprised that someone would choose to have their special day there.
Below photos were taken in the hotel garden, the lawns were so green and the plant life very lush.
I think that's enough photos for now, I don't want to bore you all with my photos. I hope everyone is having a great week and good weather too!
