This is my very first post. One of many I hope. For me, what I enjoy most about dollmaking blogs is seeing the evolution of the dolls and the dollmaker over long periods of time.
For me I hope that my blog has that, the evolution of my dolls, and the thoughts and feelings that are behind them.
Which finds me this week making a doll for Hope. Believe it or not, that while I write this and look into the future and my hopes and dreams of my little dollies and my little blog, I am quite literally making a dolly for a little girl named Hope.
I do enjoy making dolls with a particular child in mind. Concentrating on the essence of that child while I work away. This week has proven no different. Light brown hair, hazel eyes, a sprinkle of freckles, oh and a cheeky expression and of course dressed in Hope's favourite colour, mauve!
I'll keep you posted as she nears completion. Can't decide on overalls or a dress, I keep changing my mind!
