Jimmy is on his way to his new home.

Jimmy left today to travel to his new home.  A 4 year old boy is anxiously awaiting his arrival.  Lucky Jimmy!

Jimmy is a small 10" waldorf boy and turned out to look just like my youngest grandson -James Tiberius Kirk Wel--.  Yes, his parents are Star Trek lovers and named my grandson  after captain Kirk.  I just fondly call him Jimmy.  He is made the traditional Waldorf way with all natural materials.

I knit the trousers for Jimmy and I hope I can remember how to do it again.

New Edith Flack Ackley Doll

This is my newest Edith Flack Ackley doll.  She was made from Edith's 1943 pattern called:  To greet a little girl.  She wears a vintage red swiss dotted dress, and a pinafore, pantelettes and underskirt made from organdy.

Waldorf Dolly with knitted skirt finished

I finished my new Waldorf Dolly,  she's about 10" .  She's wearing her knitted skirt and I crocheted her a small pair of shoes.  She feels very happy to join her sisters.

New Waldorf Dolly

 I'm working on the new doll who will get to wear the knitted skirt. Here i'm  starting to cut out the body.
Body is sewn and stuffed with clean wool and is waiting for her hair.  Tomorrow I will have her finished and post a picture of her.

Dolly's new knitted skirt

This is what I've been working on today.  This is a pattern by knits so quaint.  The dolly pinafores  are very cute and she sells a cottage license for only $10.00.  I had to adjust the pattern to a smaller size.   But I'm happy with how it turned out.  I also learned a new cast on called PCO.  It's time consuming but makes a very nice hem.

This pinafore is not for this dolly, she is just modeling it.  It will go to a doll that has yet to be crafted.

Marmot day

I live in Alaska and here we call Groundhog day, Marmot day, due to a proclamation by our governor.  These are two of my grandsons outside checking to see if Spring might be coming.   Ha

Hello, this is my first  post.  These sweeties are the latest Waldorf dollies I've made.  The small ones are about 10 inches and the large one is 16 inches.  I used all natural materials such as cotton skin fabric, clean wool stuffing,  wool and mohair boucle yarn, and all cotton fabrics. Don't they look cute sitting together.
