This hat was with a stash of other unusual tiny knitted hats made for me by a girl in Vernon, B. C. My sister met her in a brain injury rehab. group and told me about her knitting. We only corresponded twice and then I lost touch with her. She made me some of the neatest little knitted hats....and so quickly... it took her only a week to do 15!! wish I could find Andrea again!!
Anyway...as you can see...Leonard found my stash..and he kinda likes this one.
So... the new Bichon ..tail on now. Don't really know if it is a "he" or a "she" ...so am not putting on any flowers or bows. I will just have some purple, some blue and some pink ready in case. The new owner can decide.
A beautiful sunny day! Heading to the fabric store. Must see what is available in Chinese type brocade ..perhaps some tiny matching prints or lovely colours to go with............ because .......... I have signed up for a challenge at Doll Street called the Song of the Lotus. It is being sponsored by Patti Culea, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Doll Street. She thought that since it is also the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong being returned to the Chinese... we would make it a double commemoration event. There are also other twists... she will be doing a tutorial on making the tiny silk shoes that the women made for themselves when they bound their feet... and we must place a pair in the hands of the doll...and, further..we must specify a certain colour for the whole piece and use it accordingly...as well as do the face with Chiu Chow make-up. Whew! a challenge indeed!!
