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 Patterns Belly Button Baby


I have to share with you the embroidery on the Katharina dress.
It is all thanks to my friend Diane Smith in Tasmania
 that I have at last gone a little embroidery happy.

Lazy Daisey stitch is not as easy as it looks,
 one has to "let" the thread lie in the way it wants to or else you get all these long thin petals...NOT GOOD
much prefer the petals to take on a gentle curve.
Also unpicking a flower is harder than you think.

One thing you must do is wash the white garments before you embroider.
The soaps do change the colour of the thread slightly.....
even though I use delicate soap.
