Visiting the sick
There’s rather Flemish look going on here – but never mind. All that posh black too. Must be a special visit.
Reminded me just a little of the National Gallery portrait of Gainsborough’s daughters, but they don’t actually look like the painting in any way, so perhaps it’s just the pairs of dark eyes(?)
Gone are the Victorian looking outer fancy bits and a smaller kneeler put in place whilst the flowers, at least for the moment, are around the mirror.
The Ashwood Design Miniatures chest has bedding from the truckle on it.
When recently cleaning out and rearranging the workroom, we saw every inch of the carpet and shelving as furniture was moved around and a new work surface was built, and I delved in every box before filing it and its contents away.
You know what’s coming next, don’t you. Yes. What have I lost? The dolls’ hair box.
I rarely use it as I have a preference for bits of wool yarn or cleaned wool directly from a sheep as these are easier to handle and all the characters are wearing hats or caps of one sort or another.
This time I’ve been caught out as I would like two of the figures to have long, hanging hair. I’ve looked and I’ve looked. I reckon the only way it’s going to turn up is if I ignore it and use something else. So, with that in mind, there are probably going to be two little girls with very unruly red mohair hair being put together over the next few days. Wish me luck, and if you come across a box about five inches by five and about eight inches tall with plaits of hair sticking out of it, let me know :)
