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.

Crochet outfits are coming along great, I do wish the patterns were easier to write out.

As a Christmas present to all my followers, 
you will have the chance to win a bonnet and dress that fits 

Belly Button Baby

All you need to do is follow my blog by email, and you will be added to the draw. 
Unfortunately the doll is not included. The draw will take place on the  
5th January 2012

Here are other outfits that I have been busy with. 

Enjoy and have a wonderful Christmas. 
I wish you a very healthy and prosperous New Year.

Thank you so much for all the comments you have posted on my blog over this last year. It has been truly encouraging.......

Miniature Crochet in the Studio

The mice have been breeding and so have the number of outfits.

I have been working on a system for making a crochet pattern that one can "read" from a photograph.

I was taught to crochet my copying a doily that my grandmother had made.

The Japanese patterns work really well for me, but when I try to draw the design I run out of paper. I know the patterns can be done in the software program Illustrator but that involves learning a new program.
I wonder if I could learn just the part I need to know.......

All the mice have been made by my friend
