Sunday Afternoon.

Henry seems to be listening intently to Peggy Sue this afternoon...I am not sure what they were discussing as when they spied me they went silent!

What Shall I Wear Today?

Peggy Sue is wondering what to wear today.

She doesn't want to wear her grey dress.

I think she must have decided on the blue one...she has taken off her nightie and is putting on her underclothes.

Yes, it does look like she decided on her blue dress.

She is so tidy!  Folding up her nightie and putting it away neatly.

Shoes and socks.

Second shoe.

Now what?

Looking pretty.

A bag, and a check of the hair.

Looks like she is ready to go out somewhere!

Creative 2020 - Week 3

Just managed to squeeze in one creative item this week...

A scarf for Peggy Sue.

Edited to add:

It is a nice fit and should keep her warm when she is out in the cold weather.

Sorting Clothing.

Peggy Sue decided to sort out her basket of clothes.  

She wanted to put some in her travel trunk so she has easy access to them whilst the rest remained packed away.

The top drawer was perfect for her tights, socks and underwear

She hangs up her choice of clothes.

She hopes they will all fit!

She stacks her bags on the shelf and her lunch box. 

The other two drawers contain her hats and her cardigans.

All okay.

Clothes are all hanging up except a few coats which she has folded and put on the bottom.

Ta da!  All done.

Time for a rest with Little Owen now.

Curating a Collection

I still haven't fully refined my goals for my 'Year of Twenty', however, some things are becoming clearer in my mind about where I want my focus to be.  We have been discussing 'Curating a Collection' on a group I am on.

I believe at this stage that a lot of my 'other' dolls will now essentially be leaving, although the process might be slow.  I am now thinking that my group of 'twenty' will be 'any other' dolls that I want to keep apart from my Sasha/Gregor & Schoenhut, who will remain my core group - and I think I will also be pairing down them a bit.  I will be selling all but one of my Course dolls as well.  I will keep my blonde girl with the pigtails/plaits.  This will significantly reduce my collection and I think I will start to enjoy and focus better.  It is very easy to be 'led astray' and go in all sorts of different directions and the last few years it has been a bit like that as I guess in a way I have experimented with what I like and don't like. Although have to say on a whole I like them all!

Creative 2020 - Week 2

I just haven't had the time to do any knitting or sewing over most of this past week, but did manage to make one item.

Peggy Sue found some material she really liked and asked if I would make her a dress out of it.

Naturally I said yes as it has been quite some time since I made her a new dress.

She seems very happy with it.

Constant Companion.

Peggy Sue has been my constant companion the last few days.

She sits beside me in the evenings.

and snuggles up in bed at night.

She watched a film at the Sailor's place last night with Buzz and Woody.

...but it was a bit scary in places and she had to hide her eyes and come and sit with me!

This morning she took Petunia out for a walk, as it was  a bit wet, she carried her to make it easier.
