Here Come the Girls

and their birds!

Here come the girls, and their birds!

I've been experimenting with the stump dolls, and enjoying playing with Nellie's birds. I thought I would try a different kind of 'hair' so used a novelty knitting yarn, it looks as if it is made by wrapping 'slubs' of unspun fibre with a much thinner yarn of the same stuff, bit like a machine wrapped cord. I 'rooted' it in with a felting needle. I think I prefer the hand knitted wigs!

I'm using these as Christmas ornaments, because I like the bright coloured sparkliness!

My Goodness! What a delightful 'find' to stumble upon on what must be the greyest afternoon of the year! Your dolls are just beautiful, so unusual, and clearly someone who adores colour! Fabulous!
