Messy Thread and Missing Pins



I love studio/ workroom shots- as I’m sure most of you know by now.  This quote is by Kathe Krause, amazing dollmaker from the 1900’s out of Germany. I tried to google her but only got sites where you can buy Krause dolls, but I’ve seen the website before. I’m not very good at searching online. This other picture is of my crazy messy embroidery thread basket and a doll I was working on a few days ago, the sweet pincushion was made for me by lovely Tracey as a birthday presents. I love pincushions, so many pincushions – but I always seem to have pins everywhere. I always feel like the worst mother ever when Jasper is crawling around on the floor of my workroom and Ben starts screaming ‘There’s a pin! A pin!”. Ben, my eldest, is nicknamed Mr. Safety Officer. I have one of those telescoping magnets that John got me as part of a birthday present one year (no joke), but I never use it unless the pins get caught between the baseboard and the laminate. God, you really didn’t need to know that.

Anyhow, I’m doing another Win A Doll contest to welcome ,what I believe are, some new readers to my blog. I finally figured out the stats thing for my website and it looks like there are some new peeps. Anyhow, what a better way to celebrate then to have a Win A Doll contest. I have a pretty  girl that I’ll finish up tomorrow morning and post about it at night sometime.

* The other things on my table are Denman Island Chocolate, I go through half a bar a day. Who am I kidding? About a bar a day. My tea that I love so much, which is Chamomile Citrus by Mighty Leaf. Got to give shout outs to the things that give me happiness!**

    Good morning! If you ever do find that website, could you please let me know? I can’t find it either, and I love Käthe Kruse.

    I’d kill for some tea and chocolate right now. Maybe I should just go get it and pamper myself. It’s one of those days…

    P.S. Button is working again! Yay!

    Studio Shots are the best. I love to lurk into other people’s workspace. Very inspiring. And what a great idea to have this quote written on the wall.
    I guess I am one of your new readers. Just added your blog a few days ago.

    Might it be this website?

    Greetings from germany!

    I recognized your chocolate right away!!! I wish I could get some of that delicious treat here…I savored the bar you sent me…little nibbles over the course of a few days…chocolate heaven!!!

    Is there something odd about me that I like seeing little dolls in progress? It is so amazing to me how they change throughout the process. 🙂

    i am a new lover of your dolls and blog, though i’m not yet lucky enough to own a doll. i appreciate the doll sewing tips as your dolls have inspired me to try to make some for my boys. i don’t think i’ve ever been inspired to buy or make a waldorf doll until i saw yours. i think it was the hair. and the way you shape and sew the faces. and the simple, stylish clothes. clothes you just want to touch and wear yourself! not all ruffly with stiff lace, etc. i’ve come out of lurk mode to tell you this-your work is so inspiring! i read all your archives and everything. i really wish i could see them all in person.

    Hi Christina,

    I have bookmarked your blog and I check in often! I just can’t help myself. I love seeing what’s new in the land of Bamboletta. I am in awe of the uniqueness of each of your dolls while still maintaining your “Bamboletta look”. When I see pictures of your dolls, I know they are yours without looking. I have seen other waldorf style dolls but there is something that is special about yours. Love them ALL!! 🙂

    I found a small peek inside Kathe Kruse… wanna see?
