Marmalade Compote Preview 1...

Preview photos of the new collection that I am working on.  These are three of the new outfits.  The outfits were not placed in any particular order but I thought you might enjoy seeing them as I am nearing the point of working on all the accessories, hats, scarves, socks, choosing footwear etc.

As you can see they are not finished yet.  I was taking some photographs of the outfits to this point to enable me to decide what needs to be done for each outfit.  I always find photos at an intermediate stage really help.

I thought a few closeups would be nice.

A beautiful fairisle sweater.  I have used a self striping 4 ply wool for the green and a 4 ply ginger wool for the contrast.  I love the effect this creates.  I have teamed this with sage coloured needlecord trousers and pearl shoes.  I haven't decided on the accessories yet.  This is Maya.  She is a lovely girl from 1970.  I repainted her eyes because one was very badly faded.

A gorgeous self striping 4 ply wool sweater.  Lovely stripes of marmalade, apricot, amaranth, gold and purple.  Starla looks really cute in this lovely polo neck Sweater.  I painted her green eyes.

This cute summer outfit is finished.  It has a lovely swimming costume, cover up, patchwork bag, shorts, hat and slip on suede sandals.  This is Pippy one of my lovely Kelly Wenarsky repaints.  She has very vivid hair.

    I love the hat - such lovely contrasting patterns.

    Maya looks so pretty in the sweater - it complements the different tones in her hair. I'm really looking forward to seeing the whole collection.
