All the way from Kyrgyzstan

I am still going to make a doll for Amelia J – yes I really am – but today I went to check out a store in Prahran called AK Gallery as suggested by AC in my comments section. What an incredibly beautiful shop it is absolutely loaded with felt dolls, felt christmas decorations, quilts, mobiles… I was in felt / crafty heaven. The felt dolls come from very exotic sounding kyrgyzstan and are quite amazing, perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea but so lovingly made and so unique that I got all carried away and splashed out and bought a doll dressed to the nines in a hand knitted wintery outfit.

I am still going to make that cat doll but now the pressure is off to make it that very special first christmas doll.
