Me and My Big Mouth

Well I've gone and done it now. I had been reading the "Notice" section on the Soom iMda website and saw that 2.6 Colette was going to be on regular sale in the first half of 2015, so I asked "what month?" No answer came, but to my surprise the blank face showed up the very next day!


So not wanting to miss out, I quickly paid off the remainder owing on my 3.5 Babette with what was left in my PP a/c and put this little girl on layaway using the CC to make the deposit (which I swore I would never do). I have ordered both iMda's with blank faces so I can make sure the two faces are done to look like siblings.

As you already know I am enchanted by "teef", well I'm also smitten with freckles, so along with those features, these two will become my two little red haired girls.

I am quite captivated by the outfit Colette's wearing, it reminds me of a country kitchen and I am thinking a small spin on this look could suit them both. This week I received another parcel of Tilda fabric and amongst it, two lovely small gingham style checks in pastel pink/white and pale aqua/white. So with that in mind, I will design & sew coordinating outfits in readiness for their arrival.

Sometimes, I wish I could keep my mouth shut . . . but not this time! I am completely besotted with these two little girls. :)

  1. I am enchanted with teeth and freckles too! I love the idea you have for these girls and can't wait to see them. The outfit sounds really cute. Hope you can post some photos when you have then finished.

    And of course, congrats on the new order! Sometimes, when a doll calls to you, the only thing left to do is to answer.

    1. Hi Alasse,
      I'm not sure how long these dolls will take to get made, but I will certainly post photos when they arrive and I finish the outfits.

      You're right, but it would have been nice to have a bit of breathing space between purchases.

    1. Hi Night Owl . . . I really am hopeless, so much so, I will just have to stop looking at the doll artists websites, though I doubt if I'll be able to, there are so many lovelies to look at!

  3. If she's limited and you really want it, it's okay tot ry to re arrange things for a doll. I've done it before for my SOOM Dia an he's my favorite by far, I'm so happy with him.
    let's hope they stop releasing nice dolls for a while so our pockets can rest :D

  6. It's not too late! You can change your New Years Resolution to "Break all of my New Years Resolutions!" XD

    Super cute little gal, though. :)
