These are not my dolls, although I do wish they were,they are my Mums which she found recently.
She thinks the larger doll is 1930's, the smaller 1950's, if any one knows any different do let me know.
I love the colours and embroidery on their clothes.
The pottery leaf print I purchased from a friend who is very creative and paints the most wonderful watercolours too.
I felt inspired by these oriental themes and this led to my new brooch, I used some pure silk threads in that wonderful jade green.
I have used quite a lot of hand stitching in this piece as it is such therapy to me and I love blending the colours of my little seed stitches.
The sun is shining and I need to get out and do some gardening.
Have a lovely weekend.x
