Another Collaboration Between Friends

My very kind friend who enhanced
this time last year,
and offered if for sale on my behalf at the
Hobart Doll Show,
has done the same thing again this year for me!

Dianne is without doubt one clever lady,
She made the little BellyButtonBaby in the romper set
and the christening layette fits the same doll.
I am always amazed at the difference
her clever hands can make to a plain little bit of crochet.
She's a brilliant needlework artist!!!
The photos speak for themselves.





The 2013 Hobart Doll Show
is on the 24th and 25th of this month
if any of this blogs reader are interested
to go along and look.

  4. Hello My dear Susan! What an EXQUISITE Presentation! Everything looks so beautiful and utterly charming! I think that the beauty of this is that not only are you able to see each item clearly but also the intricacy and the minuteness of the stitches is made totally visible. They are displayed like fairy cobwebs that would otherwise blow away on a breath! What absolutely lovely packages and how proud you must feel Susan! Dianne, is indeed one clever lady and the two of you make a great team!

  6. Beautiful work, Susan. If your crochet wasn't so gorgeous, these pieces wouldn't look nearly as nice. Good luck with selling your items at the show. I'm sure they'll be swept up instantly. xo Jennifer
