Hope you all had a happy Christmas.

It’s been too long since I wrote a post. I’ve had some sad family issues to live through at Christmas and some health issues as well.

Things are better now and I need to get back to my dolls.

I did manage to do this knitting project over  the Christmas season. I had recently bought the new version of Dollstown Estella thinking I would replace the old head on my 18 year body. Didn’t work out. I still prefer the older version with the wider face for the 18 year body. I gave her a new face up and left her as is.

I have the new version on my 17 year body and like her much better on this body. I knit this sweet dress for her. I did the skirt on circular needles then switched to straights for the rest. Lots of work in this. Knitting with two yarns is a bit tricky but I love the results.

I love red and golds. I’ve started working on a second dress which I will make for one of my dolls for sale. Plan on doing more sewing for sale in this new year.

When I first received the 18 year Dollstown body for my Estella (natalia) I was obsessed with making outfits for her. My sister Kim made  her shoes to match many of them. I actually love the bigger size but do find her awkward to handle.

Yesterday I opened her box of outfits and hung the all up. It was fun to see them all together.Sometimes I really wonder why I love these dolls so much and creating outfits for them.

I never had a daughter (I have two lovely sons) so maybe that is part of the answer.I also love fashion as a art form. I do think it’s better to just enjoy what our desires bring to us and not question it to much.

Here are pix of her in these outfits done at the times I made them for her.
