'Acrobat's Assistant' is almost complete! / by Jonathan Hayes

Dear Nini Friends,

Life has a funny way of throwing up unexpected surprises, doesn't it? My time has had to be diverted a little of late from Nini, more than I'd like, but needs must. Thankfully I'm now back on track and my 'Acrobat's Assistant' Chinese boy is in the very final stages. His costume has brought along various challenges, particularly with the fragility of the antique silk, but I've been determined to use it as it is exquisite!

I've added many photographs to his gallery page and am aiming to make his hat and wig later today / next week. I can't wait for him to make his debut and I hope you like him.

My next Nini Doll is already in production and fabrics have been selected for her outfit. She's a 1950s girl from downtown New York who makes the very best of her life, enjoys her school and will be dressed as if she is just on her way home from the end of term.

Thank you all so very much for checking in in my doll making. I'm fighting hard to keep my Nini creativity on track and fulfilling my dreams.

Best wishes,

Jonny x
