Today I bought a book by Papillon Bleu ,its full of lovely illustrations and a story or stories about the dolls she has made. Her blog is full of equally pretty photos of her work. If you are a doll maker or lover do take a look. When I had looked at it I went and dug out some of the little dolls I made probably two years ago. I remembered I had sold several of them but the 4 in the photo I have kept.Looking at them encouraged me to start to make 5 for Christmas,I have a long length of red silk I can use and plenty of gold and silver fabric.
This week at the workshop I am going to ask the ladies to each make some hearts to hang ,I shall divide them into pairs and give each pair a different group of coloured materials and hope we will have plenty by the end of the afternoon.
