These baby feet have to wait a little while…

The extreme heat of last summer has passed. And I have not worked much in the studio at that time. So I really felt like working again. No matter how crazy it sounds, I can’t really make it long without making dolls. I love to be busy with it, it makes me really happy and I can always enjoy both the work as the result as well as the nice reactions of the customer that the doll ends up with.

That is why I ordered some new skin fabric, because I felt that one doll would not fulfill my wishes. The fabric arrived quickly, I searched for my patterns and cut out all the parts. Then I took a seat behind my sewing machine to actually make a doll out of all those loose pieces.

And then it happened …

I heard a soft and a bit of a rattling sound, looked up and to my surprise I saw that the spool of thread was empty. No worries, I thought, I must have an extra bobbin. But the opposite turned out to be true and there I was. With everything ready, I want to make a doll, eager in my chair, but without yarn.

No worries, I thought again. I just cycle to the city and go and get some new yarn. So the next day I got on the bike and drove to the store where I always get my yarn. Somehow I already had a bad feeling.

When I arrived at the haberdashery shop, I already thought it looked very dark. No light? No sign outside? Something was not right here. A letter on the door quickly made clear what was going on. The shop was closed due to vacation time and therefore I could not get in to buy yarn. I stood empty-handed. With an unfulfilled desire to finish my doll.

Again I got on the bike. Disappointed, I drove back home. No yarn means no making dolls.
These baby feet will have to wait a little while, there is nothing I can do about it…
