So it’s been a little bit cold here in Alberta over the last 3 days. Its been hard to believe the amount of snow that has accumulated & today we had a snow day because they were without power at work from early this morning until around 2 pm.
In fact it was so cold that a little someone had to give me a hint that perhaps he was a little more sensitive to cold than the rest of the denizens of the condo…
"Hey Tommy, what have you got on your head?"
"*baby hat*" mumbled the newest Hiddles.
"I haven’t even finished knitting that one yet."
"I know, but my noggin’ is soooOOOO cold!"
"Well let’s see what we can do about that… your hair should be dry by now. Perhaps we can get your head covered tonight."
"P..pp..please!," shivered Hiddles, "that would be very nice."
Within the next hour or so our newest Hiddles had his hair and he obligingly posed for the last photo.
I spy with my little eye… someone wearing some pretty nifty cowboy boots!
I’m finding it really timely and somewhat funny that this latest little Tom has a bit of a cowboy flair and is wearing the same black jacket that Tom has been wearing at the Wheatland Music Festival… the outfit pieces were decided on well before photos of Wheatland Tom hit the web. ~*insert little satisfied grin here!*~
"Hey, Little Hiddles… who’s your new friend?"
"Uh,… his name is Tom."
"He’s really cute… & kinda looks like you."
"He does, doesn’t he?… ~*but he’s not wearing any clothes,*~" whispered Little Hiddles.
"Someone should tell him that it is customary to wear trousers around the condo. Perhaps you can help him find something to wear… can you bring me the blue fleece… maybe a little white and brown too while your at it."
After finishing the newest LH’s face it didn’t take long to start building up his outfit. I must say that I’m very pleased with how his jeans turned out. I tried to make the front of the thighs and the seat of the trousers look a little bit faded by felting a really thin layer of a lighter fleece over top of the dark blue base colour. At this point I had my doubts about the cowboy boots, but I’ve since had a change of heart… once I had a chance to embellish them they quickly became my favourite part of the doll.
I’m finding finding it really hard to put this project down. The two Tom’s have spent every night since the start of the project on my nightstand and with each new day I have been greeted by two tiny smiling faces.
"KiiiiimMmmm… Where do Dolls come from?" asked Little Hiddles.
"They start as snips of wire and bits of fluff, but with a bit of patience, some hard work and a lot of love they become dolls… here… let me show you," I said.
Over the last few days I have been working on a third Little Hiddles. This little fellow will be moving on shortly to a new home in Mexico. Before he moves on to his new home I will post a couple more photos here.

On another note, my LH is going to be having a very exciting week… unbeknownst to him, he’s going on a week long sleepover all by himself. Next weekend he’ll be showing in the Chestermere Fair and one of the volunteers from my work has been kind enough to offer to deliver him to the fair… so he’ll be going home with Rosemary tomorrow. I’ve also packed up my first quilt to go to the fair… perhaps if he has my quilt with him he won’t feel so alone. We’ll have to see how he’s made out when I go to pick him up next Saturday. Fingers crossed that he had a good time and makes many new friends.

I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy
because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless
and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.❞
