Bridgette is dear to me……She has lived in my head for many years.
She has waited very patiently for me, whispered encouragement throughout.
If for some unknown reason, I stitched a dolly’s legs in back to front (this happens far more often than it should!)
She was there, saying, “Keep going just unpick it, it wont take long”.
When I was sick or up late with my baby, and I was just so tired, she told me it was ok to rest,
That she would be here when I was ready.
I look at Bridgette and she is everything I had hoped she would be.
As a doll maker I am often plagued with insecurities about my work
Will people love them? Will they be happy? And with my early work … will her head stay on!?
I know my spelling is sometimes poor, and I don’t always get my pictures just right 🙂
but I’m learning and I love every second of it.
I’ve come so far from those early days of pattern making, again and again! I still tweak my pattern here and there.
But I am at peace with my work
My dreams are coming to life,
So please if you would like to have Bridgette, know how special she is to my Journey and me.
