Shop Update!!

They're ready!!  Romeo and Jerome spent the morning patiently waiting while I added their finishing touches!  For Romeo, I made a tiny bouquet of roses, wrapped them in brown paper and embelished it with embroidery thread and a light dusting of glitter.  I then sewed a little ruffle collar around Jerome's neck and beaded it with tiny mandarin orange glass beads.  He's holding a teeny present, made with Japanese felt and embroidery thread.  They both measure about 3.5 inches tall.  I decided to play around with my original pattern when I made Jerome, mostly re-configuring the head, and I'm quite happy with the results.  I kinda like that little squished head look!  Hope you like them:)  Available in my etsy store now.

A while ago, I participated in my very first doll swap with a lovely lady in England.  We each made a doll and sent them off to each other in the mail.  Well, yesturday, Emily arrived in the post and she is lovely!  You can visit Lo's blog here:  I quite like the idea of doing another one in the future, so if any of you are interested, please let me know.

Hope you  all have a very relaxing weekend!
