Yren Says Hello
Well, she has stood patiently while I fitted patterns to her. My idea is to create patterns for people who don't feel they can sew very well but would still like to make something pretty for EDs. Our current project is a simple kimono and an even simpler obi--nothing authentic but just pretty and fun to wear. I tried photographing her in the latest trial of it, but it being after 10 a.m. the light in my sewing room was terrible.
For Christmas, my daughter gave her a very charming bathtub. She's been wanting one for a long time. This one is clear with sparkles and just the right size; it came with sweet-smelling Bath and Body Works products in it, which I now get to use in my own bathtub, so it was a present for both of us.
Also, very exciting for her around Christmas was the arrival of her own official Enchanted Doll "pencil tin" case, with the marvelous ED-formed foam that gently supports and protects her delicate self. She says she feels like she's floating on a cloud.
I wasn't going to post the kimono picture but oh well, here it is anyway. Maybe I'll get some better pics Sunday morning, after I've been out shopping for Japanese print fabrics on Saturday. Then they will look extra good by comparison with these!
