You’d be forgiven for thinking there was no craft on this blog any more. I’ve just had another crazy busy week here with work due left right and centre and a sick bub added to the mix. It’s been hard to find the time to squeeze a bit of craft in but a couple of rows of knitting helps me feel calm. I make the time to squeeze it in. I can’t remember the last time I got on the cross trainer or went for a walk but I can tell you when I’ve done a bit of knitting.
I’ve also been finishing my floppy doll for my doll making class…..everything in the doll is natural right down to the 100% cotton for the stitching. And I quite like all the stitching – even if I was totally last minute and sewing up the doll a few hours before class started.
We make 2 dolls during the course, the first is a floppy doll. I hadn’t even sewn on the face or put on the hair and elodie was already grabbing the dolly from me. It’s a good sign because thankfully she’ll overlook any flaws in the doll. At the moment I’m just adding hair – a process that takes a while. Especially when you’re a chatterbox like me.
And my dolly needs a few more strands at the front to avoid the ‘I just gave myself a lopsided fringe’ look that she’s currently sporting. And she looks a bit like a boy except for the pink. But it’s my first doll and I’m learning. It’s all about learning right now. And the next time I look at a sweet waldorf doll I will have a much better understanding of how much work went into it!
