Chilly Day and new dolls in production! / by Jonathan Hayes

Dear Nini Friends,

It has been a little while since my last post here, but I've been updating photos as much as possible and posting a lot on the Facebook page. I'm delighted to say that my boy 'Chilly Day' has arrived to his new home and will be revealed on the charming blog http://aboydolldiary.blogspot.co.uk later this week. Once he has made his full debut I will add my photos of the completed doll to his gallery page. I was very pleased with his outcome and thank you for all the kind messages I received through Facebook, Instagram and Flickr.

I have now made a good start on my next two dolls and will be posting photos of their progress very soon. 'The Acrobat's Assistant!' is my first boy from Asia and based on traditional Chinese costume. 'Seaside Breeze' is based upon the many drawings of 'seaside girls' I created during a recent trip to the coast. I hope you enjoy their progress.

Thank you for your continued support.

Best wishes,

Jonathan
