Hide and Seek, Hopscotch, Go Fish! Annabelle loves to play games!
[By the way......the hair (cat? Jim's?) seems to have been on the camera lens, not on the doll.]
Belle loves bright colors and mixing them all up in one outfit makes her very happy. Brown shoes make her sad, so she talked mommy into sewing purple "buckles" on them. :)
Annabelle has her brown mohair hair braided and comes in a bright, multicolored cotton dress with pink tights and brown crocheted shoes with purple buttons. She has crocheted ties on her braids to match her tights. At some point, Annabelle might get a grey wool knitted sweater....or maybe a woven wool jacket. If not, there will be a hand made purse to carry her special "stuff." Decisions still to be made.
Funny, the latest doll I've completed becomes my favorite. I do love playing with my little "Chickies."
Annabelle says, "Bye bye for now. See you later!"
My little Ellie is named for her because of her curly blonde braids.
She is so sweet and is my favorite doll so far. She is a bit over 18" tall, with soft, fuzzy blonde mohair hair and blue eyes. She is wearing her favorite pink corduroy overalls with the birdie print, darker pink long sleeved T-shirt, soft grey crochet Mary Jane shoes with buttons and a grey woolen crochet cap with a button flower.
Ellie is a very quiet girl, but she loves to watch the birds and birdsong is her favorite sound. I'm really going to have trouble letting this one go when the time comes.
An old friend of mine from many years ago used to use the phrase, "She's a tulip!" to describe a small child (hers!) with a fun personality. I decided there was no better name for my new doll than "Tulip." So here she is!
Tulip is probably going to have a few freckles (when I find just the perfect pen or paint to apply them that isn't too dark and won't smear or rub off) to go with that red wool hair, green eyes, and fair skin. She's quite the busy little girl, never stopping till she falls asleep (wherever she happens to be at the time) with her natural cotton velvet blankie. She takes it everywhere.
Her busy-little-bee personality is the reason why her hair only has a few braids (no patience to wait for mommy to do all that) and why her hair isn't done up perfectly.
Tulip is about 18" tall and dressed in a loose cotton top and pants with white trim, panties, and white crochet "boots." She's ready for a new mama in February!
Apologies for a couple of the blurrier photos...still working on that. I think I need a tripod....wait a minute...I think we have one around here somewhere....
I've been working on my first full-sized Waldorf doll and she is finished, but waiting for clothes! I am so excited by her personality and can't wait to get started on her clothing. She is not a very patient tot and if she had toes, she'd be tapping them, saying, "Come on, would you. I'm freezing!" She has masses of carrot-colored hair, green eyes and freckles. She loves to tumble and play, but has no patience for mommy to braid her hair, so it gets braided a little and then pinned up and when it starts to fall, Tulip doesn't care. She just keeps on playing as hard as she can go. Stay tuned for a day or two for new photos of Tulip in her play clothes.
