A Little Doll

Hello there ...

I don't have a card to share today ... I've been doing a little sewing recently. There was a time, many moons ago that I made most of my clothes but with all the new stores it was often easier and cheaper to buy them. Recently however, I'm so disillusioned by the lack of styles and colours to suit my age and the poor fit (I think everything is made to fit girls not women) that I am attempting to sew again.

But enough of that ... The best sewer in the family is my Aunt, at 89 years of age she is still sewing and I'd like to share with you something that she made for my blog friend Darnell who was so generous when we met, treating me to 2 lunches (and my friend Pat) and as if that wasn't enough these gorgeous flowers also arrived ...

So here's what my Aunt made for her

A little British girl to join Hammy and Freckles

One thing I don't do is embroidery but my Aunt is brilliant at it... See that little bee on her nose? And all the beadwork too...

Even on the back of her head, right down to her toes

She has a full set of underwear as well as her pretty dress and handbag

I'm sure she will have a wonderful home in the USA 

Have a lovely day...

Till soon
