Three Little Maids

Dolly Mixtures
This week I have been busy cleaning - and feeling very virtuous. We didn't use the oven until today as I was determined to keep it clean for as long as possible!
I've also made some Dolly Mixtures, but with a difference as they now come with a teeny tote bag each, and in that tote ...

Cherry, Blueberry and Rosehip
a pretty dress!
I've had a lovely time making these, as I've been exploring the embroidery stitches on my machine to decorate the dresses (which can also be worn as a long skirt!). So they really are mixtures now, as they can mix up their clothes!
Blueberry
Making these has made my feel like spring might be on its way! I shall enjoy reading everyone elses blog over on Handmade Monday - I wonder if spring will have crept in there as well?
I shall leave you with a picture of work in progress - I'm loving these as well! You might spot someone's feet in the corner!

These dolls are very cute with their little bags and dresses. They remind me of the sort of thing my Gran made for me when I was a little girl.

Very pretty dollies and I love the idea that they have a bag with a spare dress in.

Your little dolls are lovely, and I really like their little matching bags. The foxes look intriquing too.
