Birthdays & Waldorf Dolls

Last weekend, one of my four nieces turned two. Erica is a deliciously gorgeous little girl, **strangely**, like all the children in our family (what great genes 😉 )

 The sweet trees were made locally in Kildare by Hamper Moments; very reasonably priced and so cleverly made…

 Erica’s mother, Laura, is my sister in law, so sadly I cannot latch onto any gene-similarity in the organisational field… Laura organised the party without as much as a whisper of stress, it was perfect, truly, the vocation of party-organiser was made for her. (My brother Michael, her husband, was very helpful too (just before an official complaint is lodged by the man himself))

And the cakes!! Let me just assure you there were many squeals of delight!!: (and I don’t even have the strawberry cheescake or pavlova pictured)

I made Erica a little Waldorf doll; I just love how each doll becomes a little personality: this little one was cuddly and shy. She had a crochet cap, velour nightdress and little fluffy nappy/diaper. I filled her with plastic beads rather than wool, I just love the feeling of bead filled dolls at the minute :-)

I have been asked for the Waldorf doll pattern from a previous post twice in the past few weeks, serendipitously whilst making this doll and starting a few more, SO, I am working on another tutorial and hoping to bend one of my siblings ears in order to figure out how to attach a PDF file with pattern attached. Making these dolls are just pleasure and delight! (And tonight I was catching up on my blog-reading, and I came across this post by Triskel Threads, and the beautiful dolls she made. Complete with little hand knits. Ahh! cute!! )

Oh, and Happy St. Patricks Day! (NOT St. Patty’s Day: please, don’t make me cross. St. Patty’s Day is wrong, just wrong. St. Paddy’s Day I will allow, but just not Patty. NO no no)
