I am not very good at remembering to update my blog. I really must bet better at this.
I have quite a lot going on at the moment at home, work and with all my hobbies. My work hours have increased and as we all know, housework is never ending. The increase in hours is only temporary but I am glad of it. I am one of those strange people who love my job.
With regards my hobbies, I am following a magazine at the moment to knit up squares for a large throw/blanket. I am enjoying this because it is increasing my confidence with different stitches and patterns.
I have a few things I still need to be working on for my dolls houses and shop. I still have so many books to make for the shop. The large bookcase is currently standing empty, and the bookcase in the house is also empty. I am hoping to get a move on with those over the next couple of weeks and then all the dollhouses need to be sorted and tidied. I have a feeling tacky wax will be required to keep all the small items in place.
Next year I am planning on going to Miniatura so I can get more of the items I cant get from our local shop or make myself. I had some lovely items when I went to the one in March this year. I am hoping to pick up another doll made by an artisan but this time for my house as I love the one I purchased for the shop.
With regards my larger scale dolls, I have had another increase to my BJD collection. Watch this blog for current photos over the coming days. I also have several items on order so I am looking forward to deliveries over the coming months.
I have decided to slow down with my collection though now. Most of the dolls I have on my wishlist now are dearer and I am only planning on ordering one doll next year.
As you all know, I already own Mirai.
The next doll I plan to purchase will be Kizuna, along with a couple of items of clothing. Fingers crossed I stay focused on my savings and don't get sidetracked by another doll along the way.
Well, I am off again now. I am going to be working on my hobbies and taking pictures along the way so should have plenty of updates over the coming days, weeks and months.
