These two silly dolls remind me of them. After all, I have a brunette daughter, who is a bit quiet (at times) but as soon as you turn around grabs another candy! that kind of girl...and Figlette is modelled after my youngest, a little blonde girl who tests my patience at every chance she gets. Pretty much like the doll itself.
As I was trying to sew some boy pajamas, they kept making noise behind me in the sewing room, I told them to be quiet, that I was trying very hard to concentrate. Sewing has always required my utmost attention. They couldn't sit still and when I looked up they were dressed like this! So I took them out for a little tumble, perhaps the cold air would take care of their rambunctious energy.
This little doll is named Ella. Her mama gave me that name to work on her, and I think it suits her perfectly, don't you think? Ella is a doll made for a very good friend of mine, whom has always bestowed nothing but kindness and friendship on me. I am so happy to have the chance of contributing with the work of my hands to her life now, to bring her a little more laughter and a little more "childhood". This doll is for her, and now she gets to have her very own doll when playing with her girls. I hope she shares.
And, the other goofball, well...she keeps being difficult. I am used to it. Perhaps she doesn't want to leave me and that is why she keeps making working on her so terribly hard. I do want to share her with the world, but for now, I get to sit down and contemplate her, get to know her better, listen to her and find out who exactly she wants to be. So I can then create the most wonderful wardrobe for her. Big plans. No time.
