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.

Miniature Knitting in the Studio

A lady from Japan asked if I would knit her an outfit...

For the first time ever I took an order, I have no idea why I said yes, as usually I sell what I have already knitted.....less pressure.
As I had changed the Sean pattern for my "Fellow" I thought why not, I could sit and knit listening to my Audio Books and perfect the pattern at the same time.


 A friend had sent me this Claude Monet card, it was on my desk when I was preparing to take a photograph, I picked up the card and placed the outfit omto it....
I love it as a background for the outfit, the pink water lilies are quiet beautiful, and enhances my knitting.

The outfit is on its way to Japan so I just hope it arrives safely.

I lost count of the hours I spent on the knitting ....getting up early and finding I was still knitting at 11 o'clock at night....I was listening to the audio book of
"A Game of Thrones"...I really enjoy fantasy stories, made me feel I was doing two things at once...perfect.
