Dolly Fashion

I hope you've all had a good week :)
I am starting my uni course this week (I'm training to be a counsellor), so I'm a bit apprehensive and excited. I've also been reading 'Great Expectation' by Charles Dickens for a student who I tutor. As someone who studied English at university, I am ashamed to say that I am not as familiar with the Classics as I should be, but I have really been enjoying this novel. Dickens has a wonderful way of creating characters and weaving together a story that is at once gripping and engrossing. I highly recommend it :)

On a dolly-note, I have been enjoying Celeste, my new Pullip Clara, and have been making Pullip dresses for my Etsy shop. I hope you like them :)

I was so excited this week as the lovely Pullip I adopted from a good friend on Flickr arrived! I wasn't sure what to expect as I'd never even seen a Pullip in 'the flesh' before, but she is lovely! So different from my BJDs, but I just adore her cute face and anime-look.
I have decided to name her Celeste. She is a partially customised Carnival Twin Clara. Here she is:

New Girl

I love her so much that I have decided to adopt another one of my friend's Pullips! I will keep her identity a secret for now, but she should be home before December. So excited!!! ^_^

New Things :)

So I've been rather busy lately, sewing away for various projects, attempting to sew for my new doll shop, expanding my doll family, applying for a course, tutoring English, plus everyone we know seems to have cought wedding-fever and are deciding to get married (my husband and I have now been married for two years, so we're immune). I hope you've all been well, and will enjoy catching up with myself, my dolls, and my critters through these photos:

I also bought an adorable new doll from a new company called 'Elfindoll'. Her name is Sora, I hope you love her :)

I also feel I have been going a little mad as I decided that I wanted to make Minifee underwear. It's taken me ages, weeks in fact, but I'm finally happy with the patterns I have made, and will hopefully have these in my shop soon. Here they are:
