Oh my goodness, how did we reach November already? I was only half way through October, blinked and it was gone! Well October was a busy month for us as at the beginning of the month my son Brendan came to visit for a week! It was a lovely week, we had a lot of fun but the time just rushed past and soon he had gone back again to the UK 😢 But whilst he was here we went to the gym together, went out for meals and just generally had a great time!
Of course there was also a small amount of dolly time and I've been doing some sewing for my newest girls, the Little Cosmos Dolls, Bastian and Robin, as well as tiny Annic by Irrealdolls.
I made Sienna (Bastian) a pair of jeans....here she's wearing them with a Superman tee shirt that I made some years ago for another doll:
I wanted to get Sienna a new faux fur wig, but having looked around on Etsy and Ebay, I decided that I'd make one myself. The problem is finding just the right sort of faux fur, I really don't like the faux fur that has a high nylon content. Well as luck would have it, I just happened to be shopping in Lidl and there they were selling brown furry cushions, in just the sort of fabric I was looking for! So I grabbed one, brought it home and unpicked it. I then made a pattern and soon Sienna had her wig. The fur is longer than her existing faux fur wig so I was able to pull pieces at the back into two little pigtails!!!
In the meantime, Annic by Irrealdolls, who is now called Anais, got a nice new outfit. It was one I bought at the Dolly Day event in Barcelona back in June. It was intended for my Hana Angel but it was too long on her, so Anais is the lucky recipient....I added the hat and the bag which I made many years ago although I think it would have been better in black...
I thought she looked very old fashioned and even more so in sepia....
Apart from that, little Pip, (Irrealdoll Enyo in Toffee) got changed into something warmer for the autumn....he's the first to get changed, I hope you're impressed 😁 .... let's hope I can get the rest changed before the winter turns into spring again!!! His lovely striped jumper and hat are by my late and dear friend Maisiedoats, who passed away far too soon, his jeans are by yours truly...well me!!!
Apart from that, nothing much else to tell you except to say that I have another new girl on her way home as I type! She is coming from the UK and hopefully she will have arrived in time for my next blog post.
I hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for visiting.
Big hugs Sharon xx
