We were!! Yes, waiting for anything can be stressful! I hope they don’t take too long to get to you but think of the joy when they arrive! I went and looked at all the Nora dolls because of your photos. So sweet!
Your photos look great and like everything we get better with practice! I like to knit for the larger dolls as it is less fiddly! Same with the sewing. I used to sew for the smaller doll but then found it easier to sew bigger items for the bigger dolls.
Oh exciting! Nothing better than getting dollies in the post. Such fun, and yes, I agree, the Spanish made dolls are great quality.
Thank you Pamela. The photography is still a learning curve for me, but I am improving slowly.
I did notice Jacknitss had quite a few patterns for the larger dolls when I went browsing this morning. I shall keep an eye out for your Gotz.
This past week I ordered two more dolls from here, another PR Communion Claire and an African Carlota (who’s only 28cm). Later I ‘ll probably get the Bolivian Marieta and a Vestida de Azul Paulina. I’m really quite taken with the dolls made in Spain.
Well it’s late so it’s off to bed for me, but I’ll return.:)
You take great photos! You have captured Nora’s beauty so well. Nora’s dress, cardigan and hat look so pretty together. I’m a sucker for pink! I prefer to knit with wool too but use all sorts depending what I have in!
I have a few Clover pom pom makers too, which I discovered last year. They really do make great pom poms! I am knitting a Jacknitss pattern at the moment. It is for one of my Gotz dolls so I will post a photo in the Gotz doll discussion later, if you look out for it.
I love the D’Nenes dolls too. I only have the little Peruvian one and she is adorable. I just love dolls, I guess!! They are chubbier than the Paola Reina dolls.
