I posted a picture of this beautiful little doll already, but the tiny picture in the midst of all the others just didn't do it justice. Every time I look at this wee toy, I think how extremely clever its maker, Miss Flossy, is. I love its cute Japanese styling and I love that it is so girly and pink.
I didn't always love pink. When I came home from the hospital with a little girl my neighbour said in concerned tones "How on Earth are you going to handle all the pink?" I laughed naively and said "Just because she's a girl doesn't mean I HAVE to dress her in pink." But guess what? It does. Pink is her very favourite colour, and every morning she chooses a top-to-toe pink outfit to wear.So I'm embracing the pink. I'm making her a patchwork quilt with two types of solid pink, pink stripes, pink gingham, pink floral, and a teeny bit of blue and green, just for interest.
I'm free-wheeling with this quilt, big time. No pattern. No layout. Just me, my scissors, my sewing machine, a plan forming as I sew, and a whole lot of lovely pink. I love it because it's Sylvie's favourite colour. Motherhood has changed me.
