Today I’m mostly jealous of my mum, who’s flown to Rome this morning! As some of you know, Rome is my all-time favorite city, and I used to live there for quite a long time. I’m planning to go back there soon, but for now all I can do is be happy for her!
Well, I did it. I finally finished my Tilda doll. I have a sense of accomplishment and I feel a little proud when I look at my craftsmanship, but I there’s also a kind of emptiness now that she’s done. I guess it’s often more about the journey than the destination. Hannes tells me I should just move on and suggests I make another one, or at least some more clothes for the finished Tilda.
I’ll show her to you tomorrow. I bet you can’t wait!
Today Hannes took me for a drive in our trusted Volvo. We went out in search for a good flea market. We found several, but sadly no good ones. It’s not much fun to go to flea markets that aren’t any good, but at least now we know where not to go back!
I’ve now sewn a dress for the doll. It’s pure silk, and I’ve made it out of my own dress. Personally, I think it came out very pretty. As for the doll herself, she can’t see it yet! I’m planning to give her a face tomorrow.
It turns out that many of the readers haven’t heard about the Tilda doll. She’s a very famous creation by the Norwegian designer Tone Finnanger.
Yesterday Hannes bought me a book about Tilda. Let’s have a look in it together for some Tilda inspiration!
