This photo shows the goofy way she was standing, the unbuttoned shoe, the way her round belly pulls up the dress in front. This position of her feet made me think of Patsyette.
The trouble with Yorik is that he is neither SD or MSD in size, therefore, nothing fits.
These are SD sized shoes. At first I thought I made a mistake and bought the kind that are made for the new 70cm guys. They looked like boats. So I bought another pair, knowing I will deal with larger shoes, but nope, they are the same size.
I can handle boots being too big, but I really wanted a pair of dress shoes. The one I bought were excellent quality and price. I went to Souldoll’s website and they do make great boots and shoes for the Vito line, but they are $38 and $40. It’s not happening. MSD is too small for his feet.
I guess when we settle down, I will have to make all of his shoes. The clothes I can handle, but shoes? Sigh. Poor guy.
Pernille is set to go into Honolulu with me today. She has on her new Hawaiian dress that I made, which is in a muumuu style with ruffled lace. She has her purse and rice paper umbrella too!
While looking for buttons to close up the back I found something in my sewing basket that I had completely forgotten as a option on Pernille’s clothing! A ZIPPER! I had a zipper that was light blue and fit 3/4 of the length of her dress, wow! I have sewn for such small ones for so long that standard zippers were just not an option. I was so happy about this. I now wished I had grabbed the bagged up zippers I saw in the thrift shop last week. They were all new, about 20 of them for $2.99. Sigh.
In other news, Joanie Claire is on her way to St Petersburg, Russia. What an adventure awaits her! I am so happy she is going to a wonderful home full of love and happiness.
First, we both decided on a name change. Lilly is a wonderful name, but as we are heading back to Denmark and none of my companions have ever had a true Danish name, we chose Pernille. It was quite by accident, my oldest grandson is interested in learning Danish, so I have been teaching him and found this website that will help him too:
You can hear how Pernille is pronounced.
And then the roller skates. Pernille was so adamant this morning to try on her roller skates even though I thought she wasn’t ready yet.
I have lost my wonderful blogging editor, Live Writer. I was so upset (I actually lost all of the Live essentials and a couple of other programs) that for the life of me, I could not get back no matter what I did. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, going back in time, I did virus scans and used all of my computer maintenance fixes. Nothing. At best, it had something to do with the latest microsoft update, but even going back to a date previous to that download, I could not salavage anything, nor reinstall my beloved programs.
Fortunately, after a great deal of searching, I found acceptable replacement programs, but it will all take getting use to it. Right now, I am experimenting with Zoundry Raven as my blogging editor (I would rather blog from my computer than directly on the website) and we’ll see how this goes. So far I like it!
On Thursday, we needed to walk over to my youngest grandson’s school to turn in some paperwork. Lilly wanted to go with us, and I realized that this was her very first outing!
We really had a nice walk, and after going to his school, we found a park across the street that we went to enjoy.
I let my grandson play in the water section (there is a huge playground to the right. Lilly and I stayed with the baby and enjoyed the cool island breezes.
I was so happy that Lilly could share a moment like this with me. She just brings me such a smile and calm feeling. I have a lot more I want to write about her and my growing attachment to her, but I wanted to also get a photo of her sitting at her table and her new puppy dog slippers:
I am so happy to have found this table for her. It is perfect in height and scale. The bird cage, radio and tea set (all bought before I knew about her) all work so perfectly too. I have so many other things at home that will work for her too, so I have this peaceful feeling that this was all meant to be and that I can finally relax into one scale and one direction.
I want to post this as a test and see how it works and if there is anything I need to set up.
Yesterday as we were coming home, this table and chair set were sitting on the curb with a doll stroller. We stopped and asked them if the were tossing the set and they said yes….so Lilly got a fabulous table and chair set, which she promptly begged to have her tea set brought out.
Yesterday I finished the undie sets. She has the one on, that has just straps, the dark pink one has long sleeves the other two short sleeves, so I think she has enough. I will eventually make a combinations style undergarment to wear with dresses.
Her first AG shoes came yesterday. This was my experiment batch.
My oldest grandson gave her a flower to put in her hair.
I need to rest my sewing finger, as the needle punched through my finger tip callus. Sigh. So I grabbed some fabulous Japanese imported yarn, I have no idea what it consists of, the writing on the back is in Japanese. But the colour is marvelous and with 4 skeins, I should be able to get a full dress out of it, or a sweater and hat.
