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

The last few months I have been very quiet,
yet very busy in my miniature knitting world.

The saddest part is my Giveaway did NOT arrive in Holland.The postal services of both countries seem not to care a fig.
One can almost see them shake their heads and say 

"You win some you loose some" excuse the pun.
 Funny how I allowed this situation  to drain me,or maybe it was just an accumulation of being so very busy these last few months.

In a strange way I felt my integrity was in question somehow.....

My sister in law from Holland is arriving next week for a two week holiday...I am looking so forward to seeing her.
I will be sending Klara another doll....and Fenny has offered to be the postman.
Klara's new outfit has arrived in Holland 


  1. Sharon, I am so sorry about your lost parcel, I don't know when you posted it, but I have sometimes waited up to six weeks for parcels from the USA. Now you make me nervous about posting orders, I will probably post them fully insured, that just gets expensive but what else can one do??? Enjoy your SIL visit!!!!!! And your knitting is awesome as usual!!!!!!

  2. OH! Your work is MAGNIFICENT!!!!! Sorry to hear about your shipment not arriving. That has happened to me too and it is such a problem with some oversea countries. Thank you for sharing your work with us. I love seeing it.
