About 2 weeks ago I had a new trip to Cardiff again. Just love this city, even though it is very modern!! However, it has this wonderful spacious feel – it just creates happiness! So, we spent about 24 hours in Cardiff. Most of the time was spent on Cardiff Bay and in Doctor Who […]
Recently I decided to customize quite a few of my dolls. And the first “victims” were two of my Bonnie and Pearl dolls. I like these dolls but didn’t like their blue sleepy eyes which reflected light like cat’s eyes. So, I decided to replace them with fixed glass eyes. I had to cut their […]

Recently I’ve got hooked on customized American Girl dolls. Somehow I’ve got bored with standard AG dolls and wanted something different, unique. So, I bought my first one (though I won’t show her today). And then some time later I bought two more at the same time. All of them were customized by Jodybo. And […]

It’s a long time since I finished this outfit. I guess, it’s time to show it in detail! It all started with a jumper which I asked my mum to knit for my Gotz doll Sergio (whose name is Mark Darcy in my house). And I made the shirt and the trousers later. My mum […]
I know it must be boring to read all these posts about new pattern releases!! I dearly would love to show some fun photos I took over the summer holidays and generally over the last… hmmm… year. But I am very busy at the moment – and am actually immensely enjoying this new pattern adventure! […]
Last week I released a new knitting pattern – to make a cable cardigan with embroidery for A Girl for All Time dolls. The cardigan also fits Sasha dolls but I will adjust it a bit (the sleeves need to be a bit different to fit Sasha dolls better) and will release a pattern for […]

A few days ago I released my second knitting pattern – to make a hat and a scarf with owls. Here are a few dolls for whom these can be knitted. Initially, it was designed to fit A Girl for All Time dolls but it also fitted Kidz’n’Cats dolls beautifully. I have tried the set […]

This week I released my first knitting pattern. More patterns are coming, of course. But for the moment here are some photos I took of the Highlands cowls modelled on different types of dolls – just to show how many dolls it actually fits! The pattern started with this cowl that I had knitted for […]

I have been very quiet this summer. That was because I did quite a lot of travelling. Here are some quick sneak peeks. And I will eventually show all of the photos I took separately. This was the first trip – to Cornwall, the Poldark country where I took my Ross and Demelza Poldark. This […]
Today we woke up to -4C, the lowest we’ve had this winter so far. Still no snow but we’ve got ice! So, my three girls – Sam, Eileen and Caitriona – decided to do a bit of ice-skating on a pond… All knitted items were made by my mum, all sewn things – by me.
Again, these photos were taken quite some time ago but I have never shown them. I love this doll so much that I thought I would dedicate this post to her in different dresses. This is Emma by Carpatina. The same doll was the very first doll that entered our house. This one was her […]
I have just found some more old photographs which I have never shown! This was the very first cardigan I knitted as an adult. That was 8 years ago and I knitted it for my daughter’s first doll – Emma by Carpatina. It was 3 years before I started collecting dolls myself! These photos were […]
My Caitriona has just got a new sweater from me – and just in time for the cool weather! The pattern (including the little owl) is entirely mine, though there are a few things I will improve when I make it again (and yes, I am planning to make it into a knitting pattern).
This is another swing that my dolls had the pleasure of using this summer!! It was made by my mum and it’s just amazing! Tillie didn’t want to leave it – she enjoyed swinging on it so much!! Here are the details of the swing itself.
Do you know what connection there is between A Girl for All Time dolls and pears? If you’ve read Matilda’s book you would know that she used to love to sit on a pear tree in her garden and write in her diary. And do you know that the logo of the creators of A […]
Tinka has got a new cardigan which was knitted by my mum. She also got new corduroy trousers. And she went for a walk around a lake in my home town. She clearly enjoyed herself, don’t you think? A couple of bonus photos of the views that Tinka enjoyed! The Russian Orthodox Church of Saint John […]
This dress was knitted by my mum and I think Mattie looks gorgeous in it. She had a stroll in my home town last week. I love this place with the fountain and always go there with my children (and dolls) when we are in town. Unfortunately, just like last year, the weather was terrible […]
In my spare time I’ve been slowly sorting the photos I’ve taken over the last year but still haven’t shown. Here are some of my Mattie – A Girl for All Time Matilda that lives with my mum. The dress was knitted by her (and I’ve shown it before). Mattie in the full outft. Here […]
And here is my Jennifer (Kidz’n’Cats Julika) again. This time she is out of her original outfit and is wearing an outfit made by my mum last year. I have shown the outfit before, but I think it will now be permanently Jennifer’s – the blue top suits her so beautifully!
Last Saturday night we said goodbye to Singapore, place I called home for the last 13 years 5 months and 11 days. At the moment all of my dolls are stuck in a hot container on the way to our new destination. I am having a holiday for now and I will be showing some […]
By now, I suppose, many people are aware of my Outlander obsession. Now I’ve decided not only to make many different outfits for my large BJD dolls – Jamie and Claire – but also to have the same fun with playdolls. So, my Outlander project is getting bigger and bigger! Here is the first full […]
Well, this hasn’t been a good week for me – with me having had quite a bad cold (in the tropics!) last week and then now with my daughter being on a school trip far away from home (for the first time on a plane without me!) which makes me nervious, and I don’t seem […]
