I've had more time to knit and crochet since I got out of hospital and these are the results. The blanket is for my friend's daughter who is expecting her first baby. The toilet roll doll is for a dear friend who is 87. I've already given it to her and she is so thrilled with it. The baby dress is for my youngest granddaughter for Christmas but I'm not convinced that it is big enough (I didn't use the recommended yarn) so I'm doing the bigger size as well.

If you have already told me that you hate toilet roll dolls then you don't need to tell me again. I can remember your hurtful remarks.

Beautiful blanket, love that pattern. As for the toilet roll doll, I saw one at my friends house last week and loved it. How unique..and for others unkind remarks, who cares what they think! Are you happy with it? Did you enjoy making it? Is your friend thrilled with it? That's all that matters, not what someone else says...I for one, think she is adorable!

All your work is beautiful. I especially love the little red dress as I am still more of a crocheter at heart.

Do you have the pattern for it that you could share with us? I don't have any babies but I would love to make it a little smaller for a few bears I know. :)

I think the best thing to remember here on the forum is that people are giving their opinions, they are not facts. If you like the finished project and are happy with it, that is all that matters. Sometimes people give opinions that come across as harsh, but you just have to ignore them, don't take them personally.

I love all your creations. They're just lovely!! I especially like the toilet roll doll. In fact, I'm going to do a search right now to find a pattern for one. People who make unkind remarks are usually more dissatisfied with themselves than they are with you.
