And here is the latest photo of Sophie.
As you see she is sleeping soundly in a bed made for her specially by her new little friends. 
It is "Forest Bed" with two trees and blades of grass.


And I wish you all

25. Promise

It was Wednesday when I said goodbye to Sophie. First we went for a short walk
and then we only had to pack. Sophie was very excited. After all she was about
to start a new adventure in her life.

I hugged her and wished good journey. 
"You will have a wonderful friend". - I encouraged her. 

She waved her hand to me smiling. And she left.


I returned to our morning walk. We went to the sea. 
It was quiet with no trace of the recent strong winds at all.  We went up the stairs to the top of the cliff and looked around. In front of us there was a small clearing, where we noticed a big bird standing in the grass.
"Ohhh!" - cried out Sophie. - "What is it?"
"A goose". - I answered. - "She is a wild goose."

"How beautiful." - I heard Sophie ... I looked at her surprised. She was enchanted with the bird and started walking towards her. The goose suddenly got scared off and flew away on to the nearest tree. A moment later she flew farther, towards to the sea. She flew faster and faster until she disappeared...

On our way home Sophie showed me something - a green little hood.
"How did you get this?" - asked I.
"Found it in the clearing where the goose stood. It's like my hood, only much smaller. I'll give it to you if you like." 
I thanked her and imagined at once Beauty staying all this time around Sophie until she was sure Sophie chose staying here. She reminded me of Niels too. "I'll have to find him... I must.'

Thank you for your visit!

24. Sophie's description

Sophie is a Waldorf inspired doll. She is about 14 inches tall.

She is made from a special cotton jersey designed for dollmakers (swiss cotton with eco-tex label).
It is firmly stuffed with clean, carded sheepswool, but soft enough for hugging. 
Her head is sculptured in the traditional Waldorf style. Sophie's facial features (her eyes and lips) are embroidered with floss. In her face you can notice a tiny tip of the nose, and a few freckles embroidered with floss. 
For her medium-length hair I chose a light brown woolen yarn with a hint of ginger and mixed it with mohair in a nearing colour. I made her hair by applying strand by strand to the embroidered , with the same yarn, head. It is very strong. Her hairstyle can be easily changed, and it needs to be finger styled. Sophie's cheeks and nose are coloured with wax crayon.

Because she is made of sheepswool, Sophie is soft, warm and nice to the  touch. It is very pleasing to hold her and cuddle. She smells of home and gives her little friend a sense of security.

Sophie comes with a complete outfit of clothing: 
two pairs of underwear, a colourful dress, green trousers, red bootees, a white and green hat (little hood), a red shawl, a green hair band and two ribbons to tie her hair.

In additon Sophie has a white nightdress and 3-pieces bedding set (a duvet, a pillow filled with sheepswool and a pillow case).

The doll herself and all her clothes including the bedding set are made from natural materials: her underwear, dress, trousers and a nighgtdress from cotton; bootees and her shawl from wool, and her hood from soft mohair.

Sophie is suitable for children aged 3 and more.

For more information about how to care about Sophie visit my blog ("Waldorf doll care tutorial" page).

Sophie has already found a loving home. Her new little friend is waiting impatiently for her.

Thank you for dropping in!

23.Beauty, and a brave little doll

Yesterday it was 6th December and it was Saint Nicholas day. On that day Saint Nicholas brings children presents in Poland. So I also prepared a little present for Sophie she was supposed to find in her bed just after waking up in the morning. But it turned out differently...

On the day before St. Nicholas day just before going to sleep Sophie found a book about birds and looked at it with interest. She was particularly interested in geese. I even asked her about it, but she did not seem to hear me. 

There was something else that attracted her attention. It was a little packet tied with a ribbon that lay under  her cot... Well, what to do. Sophie unwrapped her present and in it found a nightdress and some favourite sweets. 

She became very excited, as it was for the first time in her life that she got a present from Saint Nicholas. As a matter of fact it was the first present in her life too. Sophie immedaitely examined the nightdress and decided to put it on. After doing so she lay down on her cot comfortably. I though she would fall asleep, but I was wrong. 

Her eyes were wide open. I heard her telling her story...

22. Her favourite place

When we returned home after morning walk, Sophie immediately came up to her little bed.
I have already noticed  that Sophie likes sleeping. It is all because of her long journey that
brought her here. - I thought. I still knew little about her, because Sophie didn't want to tell me
her story.

So I waited. In the meantime Sophie's bed became her favourite place to rest and play.

And now she quickly started to climb up her bed too.

Sophie, hold on!  Take off at least your hood and scarf.

Oops! Where's my bootee?

Here it is! - cried out Sophie. And she played for a long time. It was soon lunchtime, when she realised that....

Thank you for visiting us!
