It has been quite a while since I posted much of anything crafty...and there is a very good reason for this. You see, my most recent projects have been of the super-secret variety. Not to be seen by people that look at the blog, ya know?
Now the coast is clear...and I can show off the Wee Wonderfuls doll that I made for my niece. She just turned one!
You can't really tell from this picture, but the fabric I used for the hair is brown and "wavy", like hers. This dollie has a very cute butt - a lot like the wee girl she now belongs to.
Auntie always signs with an "XO".
See the doll on the right? I made that girl months & months ago. I think it was last year, actually. She sits and waits for our daughter. As you can see, I have struggled with finishing her. I've also had trouble finishing the knitted bear, the Bai Jai Bei quilt, the jade green sweater and several other projects earmarked for our daughter. They are all piled together in a random adoption crafting kind of limbo.
If you click on the picture, you'll see that she is a little different from the BDay doll - especially the black hair. I wanted to make the two very similar but unique in their own ways.
I'd hoped that my niece and our daughter would be very close in age and envisioned them playing together with their dolls. We will just have to wait and see.
Our girls may end up preferring erector sets and double dutch to tea parties with dolls. Who knows? I just hope that there won't be too many more months (years?) between their ages.
However it unfolds - it will be sweet. No matter what.
