Evalina Rose and her little sister Posy Anna are the main characters of a series of children's stories that I am writing. In this blog I will share the final stages of crafting their half scale house--Honeysuckle Cottage--and the miniature stuff that will make up the settings of their stories.

Grand Parents are Finished

Good morning,
     I added a Miniature knitting page for those of you interested in knitting.  Right now it just has a few links, but I plan on adding critiques of shops and fibers.  I would love for other knitters to add information to it :like links, tips and links to their own blogs.
     I got back in touch with IGMA this week and payed my dues, so I am now officially an Artisan again, I received this status in 2001 for needlework.
Here is what I did this week:
I finished the grand parents for a sea-side cottage that Annabelle and I will make this summer.
We have not named them yet, but they will  have two granddaughters who will be visting.

 the grandfather is re-sculpted from a mold.  His clothes were knit on .000,000 needles .  The color work on his sweater is Guttermann's 100/3 silk and the rest of the fibers are from my stash and are not commercially available 

The grandmother is also a re-sculpture from a Doreen Sinnett mold.  Her sweater is done on .000,000 needles with Guttermann's and a cotton thread.

I  do not sell dolls that I have re-worked from other peoples molds.   I have sold dolls made from other peoples molds with full credit to the artist.

Have a wonderful week,
      I promised a mini hat tutorial, and that will show up on my tutorial- page.  It is really easy, but it adds a finishing touch to my tiny dolls.
