Doll making and a heavenly cake & sew & tell Fridays

After I had made the bunnies

I was hooked...

I started drawing some doll bodies and rummaged in my scraps.

She was the first try:

Lynn choosed the hair color and named her Annabelle.

And of course she needed friends.
It is true, no one should be without friends.

And Léo likes dolls too...

So voilà: Meet Ben and Sara!

I had the idea of stitching the faces and hair but the children wanted to draw it themselves and now they even have the jewelery tattooed on!
They also made quite exact drawings of other anatomical details, now hidden by the cloth I finished shortly before leaving for a walk around a nearby village.

A perfectly blue sky

Simple pleasures

The village
with a cozy Tea Room where we indulged ourself with a piece of St. Honoré.

You can`t buy this cake everywhere but I know the places and never resist...
and you have to work hard after this to loose the calories again too!

Yes, it is hard to survey the children when they are playing.

(Picture this: Me, sitting on a bench soaking in the sunlight)

Did I mention that I LOVE spring?

And since today,
we are prepared for summer guests too.

I hope you have a lovely day with some nice things to enjoy.
