This quote says it all for me:
"I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to."
My small place is my studio area in the corner of my living room. My Whimcees are all the dolls, bears and other creatures that I sew from cloth or sculpt from clay, the cards and papercraft projects that I create.
It is with this blog I hope to share my world created in my small space.

The Saga Continues - The Suit
When we left the little doll yesterday, she was a bit sad as the green skirt had not worked out - but hopeful as I had told her that I would sew another from a different fabric. I showed her some beautiful blue fabric that I had in my collection and said that this might be a good choice as it would compliment both the color of her blouse and little doll herself with her lovely reddish brown hair. Her eyes sparkling once again and a smile on her face, she said "Oh! That is beautiful - would you please?"
So I sewed a new skirt in the beautiful blue and it fit perfectly.
"And now for the jacket." I said. "Is there a jacket too?" asked the little doll. "Of course" I said "this outfit is for a very special occasion!" All the while I worked on the jacket, the little doll could hardly contain her excitement and when the jacket was finished she could not wait to try it on!
"It's so beautiful" she said "and the lining is all shiny and soft! Can I try it on now please!"
And she did. I said, "You look wonderful! It fits like it was made for you! Oh, I guess it was!" We both laughed - we were so happy. (Our little doll joke.) :<)
But really, doesn't she look so special! And now for the shoes, the purse, the hat.
Thank you for visiting my blog today - and for all the wonderful and kind comments about the little doll! Tomorrow I have the final and formal photos of her in all of her finery and with her accessories. I will also tell you her name and where it is she is going. Wishing you a happy day today!
