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.

Meet Violet

I have been finding my work on Pinterest, and I love that. 
 It is my intention to share as much as possible., and I am happy for you to take my images  as long as you attribute them to me (and so far you have). Please do not take pictures of other people's work that appears on any of my blogs.   Also, my tutorial is for a Femo doll, but I generally work in porcelain. 
 Welcome to all my new Pinetrest friends, I have discovered so much while viewing your sites(?).
Violet is my newest doll that I am dressing.  I have just finished a dark purple cape and will add some ruffles to her neckline.  I love her face, it is very sweet.  I do not feel like I make my dolls, I feel like my hands do...I am always glad to meet my little people.

This doll is all knit, knit on 7/0 needles with Nr. 80 Madeira thread.

This is my Give-Away on my other blog http://mini-needle.blogspot.com/  Check it out!

I say farewell to dear Eliza as she is off to a new home.

Happy Thanksgiving,


  1. 80 madeira thread is FINE thread!!! Your tiny knitted doll is great! Love Violet too.

  2. You are a true artist. It is your hands that create you say. I'm impressed that you can get so much expression forward in such a small material.

  3. Oh, your little doll is just amazing! I bought some of that thread for lace making and it is so fine. The Pipers 4/20 is about the same size as the Madeira 80, I think it will knit up nicely.

  4. vos petites poupées sont adorables, que dire de vos tricots ? qu'ils le sont aussi. Très beau travail !

  5. Wat heb je weer een prachtig popje gemaakt...

    Groeten Xandra
