Purple Green Goddess






















I copped out big time. I could not get my mind around knitting hair for this doll. I got as far as knitting a row but I was afraid to cast off. I haven't given up on the idea of knitting, just on trying it on my own. I need to find a teacher.

I don't mind the final result. I think she turned out pretty good and I will be sorry to see her go. She's going out in the mail tomorrow to my swap partner.

Hubby, sister, brother-in-law and I are going to Estonia and Scotland in June. It's not too early to start planning a summer wardrobe so I will be dragging out some of my (hundreds) of vintage sewing patterns and decide what to sew. I will be sharing those projects here over the next few months.

This Saturday, I'm going to the Met. Well, almost. The Metropolitan Opera will be broadcasting their matinee performance live into select movie theatres in North American and many European countries. I hope to come out of the theatre all inspired and ready to resume work on my opera doll, who at the moment only has a face.

Hi, I love how she turned out and I love the fiber hair. I have a mild obsession with fibers and have a huge suitcase full lol. I can not knit to save myself, I'm left handed and could never get anyone to teach me. Matybe one day. Belinda
