As you have maybe notised I added a button on my right sidebar- about a mini dress form tutorial! 
It is Karla, from Karla`s Cottage whom is hosting it ,and it is a very fun ,wonderful, and-- cheap little workshop.
Karla explains in 3 small videos how to make her beautiful dress forms-and I just had to try...

What do you think? I loved doing it

and dress her in beautiful old fabric`s

and even it is summer here, I thought she had to wear a little fur -
The top of her is a sweet cork from a wine bottle :)
I have enjoyed this workshop so much dear Karla-thankyou-

And this beautiful photo taken a few dayes ago, at eleven o`clock night-shows the view ,
while the sun went to bed here -and to shine on the other side of the world.
I too will soon go to sleep, -but first wish you a wonderful day or evening...
I just got my copy of  Sew Sommerset-and will take it with me -relaxing and reading.
Love and hugs, to you dear friends, and a huge thankyou for all your congratulations to me being featured in Pat Winters beautiful magazine- THANKYOU , you are such wonderful friends.
XOXOXO --Dorthe

Den er virkelig yndig, Dorthe og
jeg synes, pelsen giver en fin kontrast til den lyserøde nederdel.

Ha' en rigtig dejlig weekend og Pinse, når du når dertil.

Sommerlige hilsner herfra

Dearest Dorthe..You made such a beautiful mini dress form here. It has just come so naturally to you like your divine dolls! Love her sweet full skirt, flower and Oh my that little fur wrapped around her shoulders makes her look so elegant!
And I have to say that evening sky has such a feeling of warmth from the day it has just left behind. The colour is so pretty and I can even see a windmill I think in the distance. Imagine having such a vista!
It is all gorgeous my sweet friend as
you are.
Big love, big hugs,
Suzy xoxox

Dorthe, I can't believe I've been so absent from blogging and visiting! It has been so busy here and I've barely had time to post a picture a day and no time for visiting! I need to email you privately.
This little lovely with the fur Is so elegant! I think she's ready to stroll down a street in Paris, don't you? ;-)
Hugs, Diane
