Ice Skating?

I found a pair of ice skates in the box of shoes and boots.  I wanted to go skating,  but Mama said that I was too little.  I was very sad.
Today, Mama said she had a surprise.  She helped me put on my skates and brought me here. It isn't exactly ice, but it is very pretty. I'm having fun and I like having my picture taken.

Bye for now, 

My Birthday Cake

I just wanted everyone to know that I did get my cake. It was yummy but messy. Mama had to wash my dress because I got frosting on it.

Bye for now,

My First Birthday

Hi, it's Richi! Sorry, that this post is a little late. It was Mama's first week back to school and very busy. Also, it was very cold for Texas.

My birthday was Friday, January 9th.  Mama made me the new outfit you see here and I got a new pair of shoes too.

I was waiting for Papa to finish my birthday cake, but Mama said that I needed to write my blog before it got too late. I will start earlier for the next one. I love my new outfit and it keeps me nice and warm.

My friend Speck 's Mama sent my Mama some new yarn that is just right to make Micro sweaters. Mama made my new outfit from some of the yarn they sent.  They also sent me a very nice coat that helped keep me warm all week. Speck is a Dream High Studio Micro Piko bjd like me.

I hope to be able to post a picture of my friend Speck in the future.

Oh, I almost forgot. Did you know there are green Pikos out in the world? I haven't met any, but my friend Ella has.

Well, that's all for now. I will write again soon.
Your friend,

Almost a year of Richi

I was tagged to make a list of my Doll Wishes for 2015. I had to ask "Does it count when all my goals and wishes involve Richi?" You see, Richi is the only doll who came and stayed in 2014. A Micro fairy that I had owned longer went to her forever home. A Firefly Fairy arrived and was sent packing by Richi. Myri has gone to a seamstress to be a fit model so Richi can have jeans, t-shirts and footie pajamas. Every doll that tries to arrive would have to capture my imagination in ways that
Richi can't or be easier to photograph than Richi.

If Legos Friends didn't exist, other dolls might have had a chance. But Richi has a modular doll house that is completely furnished.

If I couldn't crochet clothes for her, other dolls might have a chance. But crocheting for Richi has improved my crochet skills. The smallest thread I could crochet with in 2013 was a size 10 crochet cotton or size 8 perle cotton. Today I finished a ankle length gown made of size 40 crochet/tatting cotton and trimmed in size 12 perle cotton. For Richi's sake, I have learned to read and modify patterns to fit her.

Richi is my trunk doll, my dollhouse doll, my companion doll.. This year she will be my photo story doll.

So here is my list:

1. Make more wigs in different styles for Richi

2. Take at least one doll picture a day.

3. Write a doll blog each week.

4. Do a Doll photo story each month.

5. Keep my Etsy store updated and photograph all of my threads for custom orders. (This is to fund my love of thread-there are Lizbeth 40 colors that I don't own.)

6. Order a non-crocheted wardrobe for Richi from Spampy.

7. Organize Richi's clothing and make sure each outfit has matching accessories. (hat, shoes or boots etc )

8. Order and build Emma's Lego Friends house for Richi- it's lavender.

9. Buy a backup body for Richi.

10. Buy the Legos Elves ship for Richi, when it comes out- it's purple.

11. Make a decision about the rest of the Legos Elves sets after I buy the ship and put it together.
