People Who Just Don't Charge ENOUGH for Crafts...

Check out this doll, specifically, check out the amazing hand-knit outfit. Ladies take second-hand dolls, and kit them out by knitting the most amazing doll clothes. Then the charity shops sell them for ... just about free. This was the most expensive doll I have seen, at 5 pounds. I could just about weep when I look at the amazing detail in the clothing - lace trimmed undies, knit smocking, picot edging. I can't do HALF this stuff, and if I did you can bet it would take me more than 5 pounds' worth of labor!

Lily appreciates her anyway. She's named the new baby Shoe, because she has shoes. There ya go.

OMG the bloomers were knit?!?!!? That is amazing work for only 5 pounds!!! I just bought some sock yarn from England (suffolk) and it cost me a bit more than that!!
