my new favorite

we spent the day running around williamsburg and visiting shops. i finally got to experience sweet william. a brilliant children's store that carries my dolls. it was lovely. so many perfectly sweet/edgy clothes, toys, accessories. owner bronagh staley has a beautiful vision. i was so inspired when i left i drew all through dinner and on the train back to long island. the drawing i posted is one of many new dolls that will be added to my line. oh how i wish i had a sewing machine in my pocket. i'll have to wait till i get back to my studio before anything can be realized. i'm thinking hot pink corduroy and a tinie tiny floral print for the inside of the ears. i also have several bolts of delicious velvet. mmmmm velvet bunny of super cuteness!
time to get back to drawing. i want to figure out a spindle peacock.
love love happy holidays!

a bundle of sweet faced girls

just finished stitching the last mouth and eye. 9 fresh little faces. a handful of these darlings will find themselves in brooklyn at sweet william. i used every colour of linen i had in my stash. bits of antique kimono cloth and vintage italian silk ties make their clothes. how i love these soft and sweet little girls. they would have been my most favorite doll as a small child.

i heart pom-pons. i especially love teeny-tiny ones. and if they happen to contain any hot pink, i simply explode with joy!
