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.

GIFT Pay it Forward

GUESS WHAT

5 is my lucky number and my Followers now number 55

I felt I need to give somebody a gift

I have so many things to celebrate, and be thankful for

Being able to move to Cape Town
Finding a place for me on my birthday holiday
Actually getting my Fellow first time round
Enjoying what I do for a hobby and a mother who inspired me through out my life
Nearly finished packing, having friends and a son to help me unpack

The draw will be on the 2011 JUNE 02 and it will be for





Leave a comment and I will add you to the draw!
Thanks for all the wonderful things
you have all had to say about my work
Makes me feel rather humble that I have been given this talent
and have been guided to using it in this exciting way

I am going to start teaching miniature knitting
when I am settled in Cape Town
A few ladies have offered to be my "Guinea Pigs"
This is a learning curve for me, as I would love to teach in
Guild School in Castine, USA

I would like to have the perfect prospectus for that!

I will be finding out from the ladies "What I  know!"
and what I need to teach them
.
So many things we take for granted I am truly grateful
