how fairy nice

here's another doll i tested for kristen. this is the third in a fairy series, and the pattern is called 'adorable addie':

i had lots of fun with this one, as is usually the case with kristen's creations. can't say enough good stuff about her patterns.

as i was taking the pictures i was reminded of the story about the two girls in cottingley in the early 1900's that fooled a lot of people who should have known better (including sir arthur conan-doyle of 'sherlock holmes' fame) into thinking that they'd photographed actual fairies frolicking in the woods behind their homes...even so called 'experts' of the times claimed the five pictures weren't double exposures...but i guess they never stopped to think that maybe the fairies were just paper cut outs that the girls were holding in front of them...but then again, photography was in its infancy in those days. they made a movie about it some years ago, "fairy tale, a true story" or something like typical hollywood fashion they made the ending all 'cutesy' and disney-ish.

here's a back view of her, complete with beflowered wings.

if you are interested in the pattern, you will be able to get it shortly on kristen's site. for now, the other two in the series are available there.
