21" Charlotte, a Hand Carved Wooden Queen Anne Doll and TROUSSEAU in the works..........................SOLD

Lots of sewing going on here!
I could not wait to share some photos with you of what I have been working on.  Charlotte, a fully jointed 21" wooden doll with antique black glass eyes and a face with attitude!   She has amazing patina and looks like she just came out of an attic.
I have been having a great time sewing here, as I love to do.  So far she has 12 items in her TROUSSEAU.  I still have to make her a Chatelaine and finish her jacket off but thought I would share some photos so far.  Oh, and she needs arms and hands...........hmmmmm...........better get carving!
Charlotte and all her finery is SOLD and if you have questions or would like more photos just email me:

Take a peek!


I hope you can see all the tiny stitches!



Must share:
When I went to the PO at 8 this morning there was no parcel card left out for me, so i went and knocked on the back door, (they know me well lol) and told my friendly postman that there should be a parcel for me because I had proof that it had arrived at the Morwell despatch centre. He said there were lots & lots of parcels and it would take in awhile to check, so I  described the size of the box he should look for and he found it within a couple of minutes.. do you think I was excited!!!
So I've just walked in the door with the box under my arm, and before I tear it open (ever so carefully), I like to set the mood. So now I've got classical music playing and my camera ready... so off I go... so excited!!! I’ll be back shortly :))
Kathy, I am speechless!! Charlotte is so beautiful and her trousseau is stunning beyond words. She has such a regal presence, I almost feel I should curtsy.
Kathy, I am in awe of your talent as a doll maker and a seamstress, you have such a keen eye for detail. I have never seen such tiny stitches.. I don’t know how you do it! I LOVE my sweet Lady Charlotte and I am so happy that she has chosen to come and live with me and her new friends, at the treehouse. I can’t wait to introduce her to her new little friends.. I know they’re going to love her!!
Thank you again for everything, I couldn’t be happier :))
More to come!

Presenting Nellie an 18" Hand Carved, Fully Jointed, Wooden Queen Anne Doll............SOLD

Nellie is fully jointed with wooden upper arms and linen tied elbow joints.  Nellie is jointed at the hips and knees as well (photos available upon request) and she sits or stands well. She is dressed in the most beautiful shade of faded aqua blue silk damask.  These photos really do not do justice to her colouring.  The lace apron, lace sleeves and lace at her neck and cap are all 1700's hand made lace that is exquisite and has wonderful patina.  Her shoes are also very early embroidered silk.  Her petticoat is antique cotton with the tiniest of hand stitched pin tucks (photos available up request).
She comes complete with bum roll that makes her silk gown sit perfectly on her hips.  Her gown is very full and drapes beautifully.  Do scroll down and see all the photos and close ups of her face!
Nellie is looking for a good home.  I have posted a lot of photos of her trying to capture he elegant look and the wonderful patina on her face and clothing.  If you have questions or would like more photos of Nellie just email me:

Great patina!

This photo below best shows the colour of her silk gown.

Tiny hand stitched lacing holes

15" Lady Spencer in her finery!! My Newest Hand Carved Wooden Queen Anne Doll............SOLD

I hope you enjoy seeing all the photos I have posted of Lady Spencer.  She is 15" tall and full of attitude as you can see.  She is dressed from head to toe in very early faded slightly glazed cotton......wonderful! Her beads are tiny antique amber glass beads that suit her colouring so well.
Her little shoes are silk with thin leather soles. 
She has yards of matching fancy cut ruching to match her dress.  I hand cut it all with my antique fancy cutter that I have had for years.  So fun to do but many hours of sewing!  I am so pleased with the way she turned out and I hope you are too.
Lady Spencer has a very full antique petticoat with the tiniest stitches ever.  She is amazing from top to bottom including her fully jointed body.
Her face is so sweet and she has amazing patina, much more amazing in person.
If you wish to see her body or would like more photos just ask.  If you have questions just email me:
Lady Spencer is SOLD.
