New Doll

There is a new doll in my life, and my Kishes have been packed away. She is a Little Darling by Diana Effner. I have named her Emma Jane, because you pick a name with these dolls. Technically, she is a Claire, with freckles, painted by Geri Uribe. All of these dolls are hand painted. She's very sweet. Not quite as realistic in proportion as the Kishes, and a little younger than I usually like, but I'm drawn to her, so she is the one right now! I have three more on order, but there is a terribly long waiting list for these dolls. I expect two around October and the third around Christmas.

Anyway, here she is with some different wigs on.

Right now I have stepped away from the knitting obsession to do some embroidery. It feels really good to come back to it. I've been knitting non-stop for a few or three months.
