A Little Tilda Ship

Here, in Belarus, we celebrate the Defender of the Fatherland Day. On this day, we, Belarusian girls and women, give presents to our men: fathers, grandfathers, husbands, brothers, and sons. I wanted this day to be special and my husband remembered it for a long time. So, inspired by the navy matters, I crafted this little Tilda ship:

Sleepy Tilda-Angels

I fell in love with them at first sight. These sweet little beings radiate such warmth and tenderness, so I decided that my little daughters should certainly have such dream-keepers. Now, the red-haired Tilda angel guards my younger Uljana’s dreams, and the fair-haired one in red looks after my elder daughter, Alesia.

And this lovely couple flew away to a nursery of two nice children, Dasha and Misha. I believe these angels bring happiness to those children.

Recalling New Year…

It’s snowing hard… -13 C… My desire of warmth is so understandable. I’d better go to the kitchen and make a cup of flavored tea. Suddenly my elder daughter comes to me and asks:
-          Mum, when will New Year come again?
-          My daughter, you can ask New Year to come to you again any time, just close your eyes and remember. And it’ll come from your memory
So we both close our eyes and dive into our memories: the Christmas tree, our daughters playing on the carpet, my husband sitting in the armchair and reading a book and me sitting beside them and making these lovely Tilda kitties to give as Christmas presents to my mother and sister…

The Beginning...

Once upon a time I was browsing through the pages of my favourite family site. Suddenly I encountered a topic with an interesting title Tilda dolls. I was intrigued by the title not to mention my indigenous curiosity, so I couldn't miss it. I followed the link and...

How could I have lived and hadn't known about these marvellous dolls?!!!
As always nowadays the Internet came to rescue. Having read lots of blogs and sites I went shopping and bought the necessary fabrics and other little things that as I foresaw I would need to make my first Tilda girl. Without any further delays I took up the needle and started the creation of this baby...

Here is she, my brunette Carmelita
