Have been re-thinking my dollies: their new looks and characters. Here is the first one. Kin [金]. A girl who likes to wear cat ears and has a cat-like personality.
Shun is an androgynous boy. He was often mistaken as a girl when he was young. In fact, his mother, a fashion/artist photographer, likes to dress him up and photographs him. His anime/game friends tried to get him to cosplay as their favourite female characters but he always rejects them. He would only do it for his mother. Recently, he begins to allow Ziki to dress him up for his preparation work for new collection. Because he enjoys working with Ziki.

Started learning tatting laces using shuttles. Thanks to generous people who bothered to put up tutorial videos on the internet. (^_^)
See the necklace Ziki is wearing? My first successful attempt. Frustrating at times especially when I made mistakes at the later portion of the work and don’t know how to undo. But, there’s a sense of achievement when I see the completed work. Already now itching to try another pattern…
Another new thing. Just started an Instagram account: mydreamparticle. For new experience. For fun. Do drop by some times. Do let me know yours too, if you have one. (^_^)

Managed to get my hands on the latest copy of Dollybird yesterday. (^_^) I quite enjoy browsing these magazines. The sewing instruction are not so simple, I would say, but the photos are beautiful. I like that they have a theme for each volume and photo tutorials on shoes, bags making, embroidery etc.
Thought to make a synopsis on the volumes I have for those who might be interested. If you like the content of a particular volume, please consider purchasing the book. \(^_^)/
