Artwork by Kukalka - Handmade Puppen Waldorf

  • Last weekend the first European Waldorf Seminar initiated and organised by Kamrin (kamrinspoppen.nl) –  took place in the Netherlands. Many dollmaker came to this event to participate and share their knowledge from in one or more of the workshops given there.
    Some entries of the attending dollmakers are already up on their blogs or facebooksites:
    Maike of feinslieb has written a long and wonderful entry about the seminar in her blog here.
    Also Maureen von Poppenliefde and Joanna von Lalidom have attended and shares some photos, along with Daria of petit gosset, Maria of MNT, Astrid of Atelier IsaFleur, and many more…
    Actually I should have attended to and was planing on giving a workshop there, but since I am expecting and am due soon, I would have not been able to travel and attend unfortunately. But hopefully I can participate next time – from all the photos and descriptions it mus have been a blast for sure… ;)
  • Speaking of which… Here is a small (incomplete) list of fellow dollmakers from around the world.
  • And speaking of which: Here is a cool tutorial on how to make this cuddly Baymax from a sock. <3
  • Theresa of Sami Dolls not only creates vegan dolls, but she has many patterns for sale along with explanatory video tutorials on her You Tube Channel.

  • Kristin Ellermann of Dollystrations has published a childrens book recently on the advetures of a Bamboletta Doll:
    The Belonging Doll 
    Every doll has a journey. Some live behind glass. Some live on dresser tops.
    A few find themselves, squeezed, tugged, pulled and loved until they are bedraggled.
    This is the story of one doll’s adventure as she learns that only in giving up being perfect, can she feel what it is to truly belong.”

Every Wednesday I participate in “Yarn Along”, a link-up run by Ginny over at Small Things where we share what we are knitting and reading this week. You can click the Yarn Along image at the end of this post to see the whole link-up. You can also find Yarn Along photos on Instagram (#yarnalong) and Flickr.

 

Stricken Lesen

Now I am still knitting up another baby chervron blanket.
This is version no. 3 now. The first one was too small the second one had the wrong color. So hopefully this one will be good and finished in summer, when the baby arrives…

Also I like reading while knitting but more so I love listening to audiobooks. Currently I read/hear “The Wrath and the Dawn” by Renée Ahdieh.
It is an adaptation of the fairy tale from 1001 Nights. I enjoy reading about the strong female character and also the male one is not your average bad guy.
Therefore I like it …so far.
