Some members of the household are thinking ahead to Spring though.
This is Tulip, my daughter's doll, modelling her new frock (pattern from the latest issue of Marie Claire Idées). Tulip has been such a big hit with my little girl since she unwrapped her on her 5th birthday. She's the perfect size for her to be able to dress and undress easily, and undoubtedly a more attainable role model than the traditional Barbie (no pneumatic blonde genes in our family!). The added bonus is that the Marie Claire Idées magazines have patterns for dolls' clothes to fit these Corolle Les Chéries dolls, so Tulip will be able to expand her wardrobe each season. My girl has requested shoes to match the dress next, so I'm going to have to tackle sewing on a very tiny scale!
I've a day of sewing planned tomorrow, assuming the children are back to school and playgroup, so I should hopefully have that jewellery roll tutorial I promised ready to post this week. That means a stack of ironing for me this evening - what fun!
