Yep, a few more Cakes have joined the family :) First was Lilo, my 2nd Angel Cake (on the right). She and Lola are twins - they have twin dresses.
Then a couple of days ago Sapphire (Blueberry Muffin), Ruby (Strawberry Shortcake) and Rose Quartz (Raspberry Tart) arrived. They are still naked :D Must make them some clothes! I now have 5 Blythes, 5 Vintage SSCs and 1 Dal :) There are a few Blythes which have been announced in the past few days/weeks which I'd like - and 4 or 5 Dals too. But my dolly family is pretty much complete. He he - famous last words!
And finally - Cakes in a Cake Stand! :D Popped them in here as I was using the box they were on for photos of Hana, and then noticed what I'd done, so had to take a photo :)

Meet Lola

My first Strawberry Shortcake doll for about 20 years :D She even smells just how I remembered. She is an Angel Cake, and she named her skunk Rose. I named her Lola as she reminds me of Lola from Charlie and Lola - one of my favourite childrens book and TV series.
Hana has decided that Lola is her little sister
Hana's new BA dress arrived today - she loves it!

On Thursday Kiki and I went on our first advernture together on the Hills. We got rather lost and wlked for about 6 or 7 miles, but got some lovely photos.

Another dress what I made.

Amy Butler fabric. Changed the pattern a little to make it longer.

Blythe Blythe Beautiful Blythe.....

Our ButtonArcade dress came today - it was a commission, so I got exactly what I wanted :D We love it! Deer, owls and apples - what's not to love!? And Hana adores the ickle rubber chicken from Kyle :)
I made this beret with a pattern from Mel linked me to - but knitting isn't really my forte and even though it took me all day yesterday (which is why the lighting is so bad, as I didn't finish it til about 8pm), it came out more like something Bob Marley would have worn....
On Saturday we (that's me, Kiki, Hana and Satori) went to a meet in Birmingham - we saw lots of lovely ladies, and a lot of gorgeous dolls. I was bowled over by Fliss's PAM - Kiki was jealous :D There were a couple of other Punkys there - and everyone was right - Kiki does have exceptional hair. I somehow got very lucky there.
My DB and Angela's custom re-root DB - can't believe how different they look. I'm thinking of at some point in the future getting a 2nd DB to do a full custom on.
OK not a Blythe - an Ixtee Mui-Chan belonging to Jo. She is adorable!
CanCan Cat and PAM - Ruth and my dream dollies..... I need to win the lottery!
