Thank you so much for your reply which was very helpful. The closest I ever came to making dolls like this was when I made the figures for a nativity scene for my children about 35 years ago. They had embroidered faces but that was the only decoration. And they were very small. Sadly, I no longer have them but I can feel another, more elaborate group coming on, this time for my grandchildren. Warm regards, Suzy
Thank you for your really nice comment on my beaded mini-book.
I've always admired your dolls and your amazing use of colour.
I'm with you on the birds, they are so terribly sweet. (Saw a bag last week covered in tiny birds made of gold thread and pearls).
How good to hear from you. I sympathize with your reloaction. We have our home for sale now and I dread the boxing up and cleaning up that looms out there in our future. But a new place can be exciting, and that's what I'll concentrate on.
I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Sorry for the very delay in responding to your kind comments. I have relocated and I'm just beginning to feel settled in. I wish you the best with your angels....actually I have some angels in the works as well.....but still in the design phase.
Thanks and I hope you the best for the new year!!!
I love your dolls! I've been making embroidered angels, but they're in framed pieces, and that seems to limit them. I tried making dolls with arms and legs, but got into more construction than I wanted to deal with. Your prototype is the perfect compromise, and I can't wait to try it out. I hope you know that "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."
I have caught your bug for these dolls now ( well similar) I love the tiny felt etc dolls go peep here .....http://www.myriadonline.co.uk/natural-wool-felt.php

Do they appeal to you?
Warm wishes Pam
