Little Mabel is a waif, her fringe has been trimmed in the past and her limbs a little loose, but she is a delight and suits white very well. I found some fabric on Saturday which will make a perfect little Easter dress for her, I've got several doll sewing projects planned for the coming weeks, and am really pleased that I've now got my sewing room space back, as we've finished decorating our bedroom (walls, floor, new built in wardrobe designed and made by my husband, but so far lacking sliding doors which will come later, and floor to ceiling bookcase for a large part of our library of books). The best part for my hobbies is that because now we have ample wardrobe space for our clothes, I've been able to use my mother's chest of drawers and bureau drawers in our room for storing all my fabric collection and to have it in easy, colour coded reach - such a pleasure.
