About Me

My photo
IMAGINATION IS THE EYE OF THE SOUL Joseph Joubert. I am a mother of four...I still remember the smile that refused to go away for weeks after our daughters birth. To have a little girl appear after three sons seemed such a miracle. I have always enjoyed My Doll World, sharing it with Lara when she was little. Today I design knitted outfits for miniature dolls and enjoy every minute of it. The fact that the outfits are removable is what makes it so special for me. Using ever finer threads has opened so many MINIATURE DESIGN opportunities.

Days of Our Lives

I have returned from Cape Town having found a home which I will rent for myself for the next 6 months, or until I come across the home I wish to live in until age issues take there toll.

The saddest of news is that while away my mother died, she passed in the early hours of Saturday morning the 2nd April ...One of the strongest and most capable woman I have ever known.

Mom was an inspiration in so many ways, she always seemed to have an answer for so many things.
Simple hone truths, she was a wise woman indeed, if I could only be half the mother she was, I reckon I would be doing just fine in the mothering department.

It was wonderful for me that we shared our passion for knitting and baby dolls. Mom appreciated what went into a design and always looked forward to what I would come up with next.

Showing Mom my work was so much part of what I do. Seeing her delight in the tiny garments always gave so much pleasure.

The hardest thing in life is to let go the people we love. Having had one stroke after the other.... had changed Mom in so many ways which are so difficult to explain. It is a blessing that Mom no longer has to live as she has for the last 18 months.

I'm calm but so very sad in my heart, loosing a parent, who one admired and respected as well as loved dearly does not settle easily....

In my minds ear I hear her voice...."Sha a still tongue makes a wise head....and I smile.
I know I will be smiling about a lot of memories in the months and years to come.
