It is amazing how these ladies all seem to inspire thoughts about their characters.
This little lady is a lot like Jo from the book Little Women: There she stands, all pretty and warm but you just know she would throw a snowball at you as soon as look at you!
Graceful in Green which will be revealed soon is altogether different; far more serious and refined. She would know how to eat lobster without getting butter on her or have shell flying everywhere and she would never, ever slurp her soup!
Perfect in Primrose is a younger lady: I do believe she only 'came out' recently so all that is going through her head at the moment is the latest fashions of the times: where she can be seen to her greatest advantage and how to appear coy and demure when really she is constantly weighing up potential husband material!
The first three ladies said to me that they would stand still to enable me to get their likeness: how nice of them. The new ladies are getting far more adventurous! "We want to pose this way, or that way! Make sure you get our best likeness! We want puffy sleeves/parasols/dainty gloves/lacy underskirts!!!"
So what do you do?
Well you have to give them to them or the chattering just doesn't stop!
And as for the sorts of gardens they want! Well: more and more demanding. "I want topiary!" "I want birds!"
Goodness! I will be glad when I have got them all out!
So without further ado, here is Radiant in Red and her sisters who have already come out into polite society!
(link is on the side bar): now...where are Miss Primrose's details! My needles need to be moving!
Have a lovely week everyone xxxx
