Peg Dolls

A few months after starting out in blog-land, I was instantly drawn to follow a blog called Creative Breathing. The wonderful stories and photographs followed by joyous felt creations and then peg dolls was, and still is, truly inspiring. I enjoyed seeing her creations come to life with wonderful characters, but I especially enjoyed her peg dolls! Months went by and I won one of my very own Creative Breathing peg dolls!When she arrived, I instantly fell in love!
Looking everywhere for peg doll supplies, I realized that Australia just didn't have any. In desperation I contacted Elizabeth and she came to my aid, sending out a small box full of equipment to make my very own.Now, finally, after almost three years (my how time flies) I have finished making my first doll!She is a self-portrait. The eyes, hair, clothes and lovingly held lizard is just so me, I am very happy with the way she's turned out!Thankyou so much Elizabeth, for all your inspiration, generosity, and your wonderful friendship!

They are both fantastic but I must say the little you, with lizard, is outstanding.

Elizabeth's doll is so cute. You've done a great job on your self portrait Amanda. Love your lizard.
