A wonderful (and beautiful and talented) young woman, who I have been lucky enough to meet (via her marrying my brother). I think it was around Christmas time last year that Rachel decided that it would be fun to begin sewing. Before I even realised what was happening, she had started creating the most amazing one of a kind dolls with so much thought and creativity in the teeniest details, that you literally adore every new thing you discover whilst viewing the creation.
Her blog is called My Friend Charlie and Co named in part after my niece Charlotte, who is the first grandchild on both sides of our families and is the apple of my (and everyone else in her life)’s eye. She has taken the plunge and is showing a first doll on her site, this one is called the Lady in Blue. You can see her and read about her here, please go and visit and check her out, and post a comment to let Rachel know what you think.
