Petunia's Haircut

Okay, so the poof of the mohair wig was just not working for Petunia. She's not the wild and poofy, "big hair" type I guess. The overnight "sock set" did nothing to tame the unruly tresses so this morning, in the grips of a flu medicine induced devil-may-care attitude, I sat her down and started in with the scissors.

Now no one has ever accused me of being a great hairdresser, but I did my best to cut away all the excess that did not seem to be the Petunia I've come to know and love.

In the end, I was able to come up with a new look that Petunia is not only satisfied with, but seems to delight in.

But then again, there is not much that doesn't delight Petunia, now is there?

Sock Set

Petunia's new wig arrived today. She's a little shocked at how poofy it is.

It's an especially big "do" when viewed from the side.

So we're attempting an overnight "sock set" to see if we can tame it a little.

Another Cashmere Puki Dress

Here's another little cashmere/silk/merino dress I've knit and embellished for Petunia, my Pukipuki from Fairyland.

These little dresses are addictive. Like peanuts you can't stop at just one. Kind of like the dolls themselves!
