Lucy and Our Little Trip Away

So the last couple of  weeks have been all about finishing off Lucy and having a little break away with the kids.

Lucy has been a delight to work on, she has such a lovely nature about her with her gentle expression and cheeky red curls.

 Her little bear friend is warm and cuddly, such best friends they are.

Lucy is travelling to her new home with lots of special goodies, an extra outfit and a special wooden toy made by Mr Molly, a little Giraffe. He is made from a piece of slab pine and has jarrah wheels.

Lucy's outfit is knitted, but she does have a very special little skirt made from a rare piece of broderie anglaise. This piece is almost 100 years old, a very special skirt indeed! 

 Lucy has a little extra summer dress, made from cotton lawn, vintage floral fabric and antique lace.

Lots of little items in Lucy's wardrobe, because every dolly needs some extra clothes.

No sooner as I was finishing off Lucy the family and I headed for a short break away to the beach. The weather was rather hit and miss, we've had so much rain on the east coast of Australia, but we did manage a couple of days of sun.

So feeling completely recharged and ready to get back to work, a couple more dolls are waiting so patiently on my work table.... a cute little toddler and a lovely vintage girl.. but more about them in another post.
