Everyone likes the postman to call and a few days ago I opened the door to my postie and accepted a very exciting package tied up with string. And in it was........ a few bits of wood! BUT these were no ordinary bits of wood - this was beautifully presented wooden doll kit from Sophie Tilley Designs. I'd been coveting a vintage wooden doll (pictured on the right) on ebay but she sold for much more than I could afford so I was really glad I'd ordered my doll kit.
I saw Sophie's doll kit on Pinterest (I spend far too much time there) and when I followed the link to her Etsy shop I was surprised to find it was not based in the US but in North Wales.... in fact only 30 or so miles away from me in the village of Trefriw! Trefriw is well known to me as my Great Great Grandparents are lying in the churchyard there. How's that for an enabler! I've a few projects to get out of the way before I make my doll but I'm enjoying planning her in my head.
