witnessing a birth & love is in the air
Malle mouse needed a friend; now that Sally and Kitty have gone to stay with Sally's relatives (post link here) and there's no telling when they're due back, she got to feeling lonely and left out at times; it was no longer a case of pre-winter blues, I was genuinely worried she would actually become depressed, in other words she was in desperate need of female company, a friend she could lean on. Then there's GhostBird, as we all know heart-broken and in a sorry state when he arrived, he has got his act together and is in excellent shape now and pardon my French, gagging for female company as well; although I'm sure he has something else in mind than drinking tea, dressing up and gossip!
So desperate times call for desperate measures: out with the needle and thread, cotton, scissors, stuffing, a sort-of-plan-in-my-head: I had to make a doll for the two of them - if all goes well we might see more - 'nough said, let's get cracking......
|last evening shortly after her birth, wearing an improvised kimono type thingy; Malle does look happy doesn't she (I do notice she's wearing a bathing-suit, she could do with a winter outfit as well....)|
|here she stands naked to the world, her name's Emily after the poet Emily Dickinson|
Thank you for sharing her debut!
absolutely Liz, her neck is her best feature; it turned out so neat and delicate and strong - has to be strong with her big-head-full-of-ideas;-)
i can't wait to hear how it all goes
i can imagine Ghost Bird dancing
for Emily D. .... improvising
old routines with new vigor
And thank you for visiting me and your lovely comments about the quilt and my ex-mother-in-laws passing. I've just written a post today about some of my adventures in Tibet...it was a wonderfully big adventure. Ihope you'll visit again.
