I still haven't been able to find time for a photo shoot, most of my child-free time is much to dark for photos, but today I was able to take a boring shot of it all layed out.



Anastrophe made me:
A dress for Patience (my Sasha)
a everyday hat and purse for Gene (for going to the races)
A fancy hat for Gene with fancy hatbox
a picnic basket made from clay for Gene, and it has handles that  move!
and a large bag for Patience with a small matching purse for Gene!

So I finally had time to get some photos of the awesome stuff thanate sent last night (thanks again thanate, everyone just loves everything you sent!).  All my dolls are works in progress still, so forgive the occasional nudity and wiglessness. Wink  Also I had a bit of a hard time getting good photos, so I took a zillion including close-ups, and you can see all of them on my Flickr.

Here's the awesome cape and bracelets for Starshine, who wants to be a superhero:

The thread on the cape glows in the dark (Starshine loves glow in the dark!) and so do the bracelets, which are really pony beads.  Awesome idea!

Here are the lovely things for Cordelia, excluding her apron:

There's a loveseat with pillows, a basket, tarot cards, and a hat box containing 3 necklaces and a bracelet.  They're all just her taste and just her size!

And here's Cordelia modeling her apron, admiring her tarot cards and a necklace  (it was a little late to be taking her head off otherwise she'd be wearing the necklace Wink ):

She really loves everything, and so do I!

Now here are Mammon and Faith with their wonderful loot:

They received 2 bean bag chairs (in the perfect colors), a toy box, dice, playing cards, and a space ship.  There was also a hat box and dress (which she's modeling) for Faith, and a map to Hershey Pennsylvania along with a compass and notebook for Mammon.  They got so spoiled!  Mammon can't wait to go adventuring, and they've already played many games with the cards. Wink

And a close up of the compass and notebook, and of the dress with its adorable embroidered heart:


There were also some adorable mini flower pots and a cat calendar! Shown here with Cordelia for size:


And finally copies of the patterns for the dress and apron, along with some coordinating fabric so I can make matching accessories (thank you SO much for these thanate, it was just so thoughtful of you!):


Thanks for everything thanate, we really loved everything you sent!

Oh, good-- I'm so glad the dress and the apron fit right!  I was a bit worried working from just the measurements.  And your tinies look so *cute* in the beanbag chairs.   Cheesy

Love the hats. Looking for to the action shots, mom2blu.

Maltiriel - that's quite a haul. Interesting dolls you have. I'm not familiar with any of them. Lots of fun stuff for them to play with. Well done thanate.

Maltiriel has been having all kinds of real life stuff going on, and hasn't had enough crafting time to finish her package.  So she sent me a first installment mini-package, which I got today:


Here's everything: three crafted Victorian toys for Waif (little boy), a fuzzy purse and a drawstring bag for Lady, to go with her fashionable 70s style, and some mini board games in tins. 


Close-up of the toys... there's a jacob's ladder (awesome!), a thaumatrope (the coin on a string thing-- if you twist it back and forth quickly, it looks like the jockey is riding the rocking horse), and a fantascope (the big disc with the cork on the back-- if you hold it up to a mirror, twirl it, and watch through the slots, the figures look like they're dancing.  I'm sure I must have a doll-sized mirror around somewhere...)  Very cool.  Smiley



Waif is fascinated by the jacob's ladder. 



And Lady is pleased that the pouch goes well with the most recent dress I made her.  When she's done admiring it, I suspect she's going to open the chess board and see if she can find anyone to play with her.   Wink

Thanks, Maltiriel!  Smiley

I love that little pink fuzzy purse. I wish I had one my size.  Wink

Here's the second installment of Maltiriel's package, that I got today:

It includes this absolutely gorgeous lace knit shawl for Lady (I am terribly impressed-- it's really beautifully done) and a hand-bound miniature edition of Hamlet, which she is delighted to read:


There was also a felted skull, as a prop for a dramatic reading.  Unfortunately, it got carried off by Puck, who apparently thinks he's a god of death.  (In the background, you can see Waif still playing with the jacob's ladder. Wink )


And here's a detail of the Hamlet book; it's hand-bound, and has the entire script in there.  Fantastic!


Thanks for a great package, Maltiriel!  Cheesy
