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 Polymer Clay and Paper Flowers

Garlands of Flowers

I was wondering why my hands were sore then realized...I had been making flowers instead of knitting and the muscles in my hands are not used to rolling the clay anymore.

I had been using the pasta machine to help in the process 
BUT STILL

This getting old is for the birds. Holding a cup of coffee became treacherous.....first time EVER I spilled coffee on my keyboard, unheard of for me.

Painted the bed, made a mattress, The Amber Shawl and Pillow work so well for the whole scene.
I am rather pleased with the bed, still need to paint the trims here and there in a darker shade.

The teddy sitting on the bed and the little mouse were made by Ana Esteves 

The teddy on the floor was made by Ana Braun 

he wears a matinee jacket knitted for Belly Button Baby...rather suits him I think.

The little bird and pink flowers are by Beth Freeman Kane
I bought those at the Cape Town Miniature Fair this month and am so happy I did.



The colours I chose for the first garland was not quiet what I wanted, so I made the second one .......This I much prefer.


This is what I have produced for all the time spent.



Enjoy!!
