Photographs of all of my gorgeous Antoinette’s are now on FLCKR.

I am always looking for Antoinette repaints  🙂

Antoinette Montage

Antoinette Montage

This weekend was spent dressing & styling my many Antoinette dolls with the aim of photographing them as a group.  I hadn’t realized how many there are, and I may have to do two, or more, group shots.

I had fun fiddling about copying, and resizing the individual photographs I took making doll sized magazines, and the montage shown above.

The cover of the magazine was created free of charge from website bighugelabs.com (http://bighugelabs.com/magazine.php for magazine covers). They have lots of other things to make too (I am not associated with the site in any way),

I will be adding more full size pictures of my Antoinette ladies to my FLCKR account soon.

A well known company have made a fireplace with a Christmas tree selling for £60, so I decided to make one (even if it is just cardboard).

Isabella liked it enough  🙂

Knitted Cardigan

Well,I decided to try my hand at knitting as it is thirty years since I last did it.  I thought a cardigan for autumn for my BJD EID girls would be nice.

Without a pattern I started to knit and just continued on & on, holding it against one of the big girls to check for size.  I based the style on designs made by ‘Per Una’ which I love.

So, when I sewed it together it was a bit of a shock that  it was nowhere near big enough…eh?  what happened there?

Luckily I have dolls of all sizes and the cardigan fit the 16″ ladies really well.  knitted-cardigan-016

It is modelled by Bethany, a Ficon Beta repainted by Zoo.

I have now started knitting another, with more stitches,and it looks too big…Oh well I can always undo it and start again if I need to.  For now it is keeping me occupied
