By the light of the moon

and in the wake of a huge thunderstorm full of lighting and hail stones I finished the new head for my big girl's Christmas doll ~


and in a totally NOT Waldorf/Steiner fashion I made her a belly button!
Cute hey?
Now i just have to attach her head to her body; and her arms, crochet some hair, stitch that on, then dress her ~ I can do that.
(and of course make bees wax polish for the pram..& polish it ~ i have scruibbed it with bicarb and salt and made the mattress, the blanket and a pillow tho ~ make an apron, some headbands, a couple of mermaids and help the big girl with a few 'projects'...i have til Sunday because the girls and I are packing up the car and heading to Byron Monday...Arrrggg).

Steiner disapproves of belly buttons? Why so?

Thanks everyone...i have started crocheting her hair.
I don't actually know what Steiner thinks about belly buttons..I have just never seen on on a classic waldorf doll. So i am starting rumors! hehe
Tho he was not a fan of extended breastfeeding so clearly i don't agree with him wholeheartedly anyway.

Bianca the pattern is from http://www.sarahs-dolls.com/joomla/ and is called the dreamtime baby. Sarah also has a blog full of handy hints http://sarahsdolls.blogspot.com/
