Playing with Dolls

My new hobby has begun - though it's kind of an old hobby really - playing with dolls. Though I never had dolls like these when I was a kid! I would have killed to have dolls like these back then! My mom would have had a fit about the prices of them though! This lovely girl, Ani (now named Rowena) arrived for me at Sharon's for Christmas - very unexpectedly since she wasn't expected for some time later. She was a very special gift from Sharon. And since then Sharon has also made several awesome outfits for her. I've made some things for her, too and it's really fun for Sharon and I to work together on things - Sharon helps me out because she's so much better at the whole sewing thing than I am - it's been so many years since I sewed and I wasn't that adept at it even back when I did do it some 20 years ago (can't believe it's been that long!) But it IS fun to dress her up and take photos. Just what I need - another expensive hobby! But it is great fun to be like a kid again and play with dolls. Yet another outlet for my creativity. Who knows? Maybe I'll start making outfits for myself even!
