The Little (Kokeshi-) Doll

The Little Doll

– Charles Kingsley-

I once had a sweet little doll, dears,
The prettiest doll in the world;
Her cheeks were so red and so white; dears,
And her hair was so charmingly curled.

But I lost my poor little doll, dears,
As I played in the heath one day;
And I cried for her more than a week, dears;
But I never could find where she lay.

I found my poor little doll, dears,
As I played in the heath one day:
Folks say she is terrible changed, dears,
For her paint is all washed away,
And her arm trodden off by the cows, dears,
And her hair not the least bit curled:
Yet for old sakes‘ sake she is still, dears,
The prettiest doll in the world.


Kleine Dinge / Small Things

Was soll ich sagen, es war einer dieser furchtbar stressigen Tage und irgendwie brauchte ich dringend eine Ablenkung. Also habe ich meine Filz-Sachen heraus gekramt und habe versucht mich zur Abwechslung mit etwas Nettem zu beschäftigen. Am Ende kam schließlich ein  Eulen-Schlüsselanhänger und eine kleine Brosche heraus. Naja, ich schätze das ist eben die Magie des Nadelfilzens, man muss nur lange genug in der Wolle herumstochern um den ganzen Frust los zu werden und  Abrakadabra, schon hast Du etwas Nettes kreiert…

So it was one of those days, when all those little daily hazards were such a pain, that I was in need of some distraction. So I pulled my felting stuff out of the drawer and put all my effort in creating something little and nice for a change. It all ended up  in making an owl  keyring pendant  and small brooch.  I guess that’s the magic about needle felting, you just have to poke long enough to get rid of all your frustrations and  abracadabra, you have made something nice …
