One I'm going to keep!

I thought I'd show you a doll I've just finished, and she's had the honour of going 
to live in my own dolls house. I've called her the Duchess.

The lovely lady is a doll made from a Gina bellous doll kit I bought some time ago but 
I've only just got around to dressing her, and she turned out so well I decided to keep her for myself!

Here she is in the Japanese room standing next to her embroidery
I picked up the embroidery in a pile of fabrics at an antique fair and it fitted perfectly
on an embroidery/tapestry stand I had bought from McQueenie Miniatures.

Another pic of her in her bedroom

And finally in the music room
not a very good picture as it was taken with the flash on my camera.
