Happy New Year

A very Happy New Year to everyone. 

I hope this year brings you lots of pleasant surprises and plenty of contentment. 

I enjoy this time of the year - the calm after the storm of activity associated with Christmas.  Now is the time to get organised and plan ahead.  I still haven't shared with you all the things I made for Christmas - I'll try and rectify this in the next few posts. 

In the meantime, here's a special little knitting project I've been working on since Christmas Day. 

Fifty years ago I was given a lovely doll for Christmas - I called her Wendy and I still treasure her - so to celebrate her 50th birthday I've made her a lovely new coat, hat and shoes.

My Mum gave me some knitting leaflets she no longer wanted and among them was this one. 

"Best of Friends: 12 fun outfits for your favourite doll and Teddy" - perfect, just what I needed. 

Wendy is very pleased with her new outfit. 

There was another leaflet with some knitted outfits for Action Man - I may make some of these next!!


  1. How lovely to have a new outfit for her 50th Birthday. I think Wendy looks beautiful.

  2. Wendy is beautiful and so is her lovely new outfit!


Thank you for visiting Yellow Pink and Sparkly. I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a comment.
