A Blue Dress for Pinchie


Even before she was old enough to voice her opinion about such things, my three-year-old granddaughter has adamantly loved the color blue and a little stuffed lamb named Pinchie.


Pinchie got her name because Soph has especially loved Pinchie's tail.


The other day, Soph brought a little piece of blue silk chiffon out of my studio and asked if I could make a dress for Pinchie out of the fabric.  


After some negotiations, an overnight with a spare Pinchie, and a couple of video calls to check on my progress, Soph's bff has a new blue dress. And a crocheted hat - because that's the craft of the week.


Per instructions, the dress has blue buttons.


And this very important feature.

    1. I know, right? Is there anything cuter than a little girl in a bathing suit? I love the legs! Pinchie has two aliases, but only the original will do!

  4. Precious. You are also a master of 'bokeh'. I am intrigued by it these day. 'Good' bokeh, as they say. I usually see it in nature photos. Your portraits are stunning examples. I love visiting your life...

    1. Thanks, M. Bokeh sometimes occurs as a happy accident for me. That was the perfect location for this family photo, as the hill dropped off behind the wall, down to a road, before climbing back up to the field you see behind them. It made for a great depth of field and bokeh.

      I am living a pretty awesome life I think, and I'm so grateful to know that.

  5. Oh Leslie, this is such a lovely, adorable post, I just can't stand it. Your family is just beautiful, and so is Pinchie. I want a grand daughter... but meanwhile Jim and I have our sweet doggies, one who is hiding in my closet because of the thunder...
    I miss you...

    1. I am blessed, Roxanne! Thanks!
      Scout is so terrified of the thunder that even rain sends her to one hidey hole or another.
      Miss you too!
