A new Autumn/Winter oufit for baby Sasha.

A Trendon customised baby by Shelly wearing a knitted three piece suit by Cuddylugs using a handpainted Alpaca wool.

Seen here playing with her brother's Radio Flyer wagon.

Her favourite soft toy rabbit named 'Creamy' is about to enjoy a ride in the wagon.

I think that the colouring of this wool so suits her blue eyes.

30th Anniversary, Sasha Festival 21 - 24 June 2012 to be held here in the UK.

Dawn Law, the festival organiser, has asked me to publish this email and information on the 2012 UK Sasha Festival until the festival website is up and running.

30th Anniversary, Sasha Festival 21 - 24 June 2012 to be held here in the UK.

Owing to the Olympic Games and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee there will be a large number of overseas visitors next June, and hotel rooms in England are filling up fast. I have been contacted by our Hotel, The Grosvenor, about our likely demand for rooms, as some Hotels in Stratford upon Avon (one of England's top tourist towns) are already full.

I had provisionally booked 40+ rooms, at the Hotel and more could be made available if we act quickly. There are only about 70 rooms in this hotel. However, owing to demand they cannot hold them for very long.

In order to secure a room here for the Festival, it is advisable to book NOW.

I have negotiated the following prices:-

Thursday, 21 and 22 June 2012 - Double room with breakfast £99 (this is for 2 people, not per head).

Saturday, 23 June 2012 - (price is £20 lower than Best Western's fixed rate for Saturday nights) Double room £140.(for 2 people, not per head).

Sunday, 24th June 2012 - (for anyone staying over) Double room with breakfast £79 (for 2 people).

If you need accommodation at The Grosvenor, you can contact the Hotel on (tel) 01789 269213, (fax) 01789 266087, (email) Website address is . They will need a £50 deposit at time of booking.

If you are planning to stay at other hotels in England during your visit, I suggest you contact them now as rooms in London, particularly, are becoming scarce.

In view of the urgency to book rooms, we shall have to change our proposed registration system. Please let me know if you are planning to come to the Festival and have booked your room a.s.a.p. my email address is , and I will put you on the list, and also let me know if you wish to come but will not be staying at the hotel.

I will then be able to send out registration forms which you can return to me.

The cost of our Festival will be £150 per person, and we are limited to 100 full participants (meals only may be possible, depending on numbers - cost later). The fee will include three meals, 1 x dinner, 1 x lunch and 1 x brunch., and includes 1 outing.

Confirmation and payment will be required by 1st September 2011. Paypal details later.

If you need further information, please contact me.
The website will be available very soon.

Had to visit the doctors yesterday SO....

I gathered up a few of my Sashas (all naturally in their Dollydoodle's playwear) to tag along with me to enjoy time in the completely fenced-in younger children's playground (right next to my recently built Primary Care Trust surgery) whilst I was waiting and seeing the doctor.
Above. The three girls decided to first climb up the slope leading to the very inviting shiny silver slide.

There is a jutting out stand at the top where you can use a pair of binoculars to view the surrounding scenery but they were set too high for my dolls.... here we see one of them peering through the railings instead.

The girls all ready for the slide down. Right altogether now....Ready, steady...GO!

All four enjoying a 'bumpy' ride on this 'springed' seat. Hold on tight.

Another 'springed' movement ride on this Reindeer. I'm not sure Sally that you should be sitting there at the bottom. Please be careful as your Uncle Steve will be very cross with you if you fall and hurt yourself.

Another more adventurous way to reach the top platform before enjoying the slide down.

Taking cover from the hot sun to cool down a bit.

All four enjoying a 'wonky' spin around in the round dish.

Pleased Fritz to see you finally back home after your visit to Surrey and the Bluewater Lambretta ice cream parlour. (Although I had to send more money down for his return fare as he had used all of that plus his pocket money on ice creams.)

Glad to see that you are now sitting down if you are going to make the swing go as high as it can. Do you want a push to start you off?

Two of the girls now having a go.

It's just like climbing up a circular tower!

Three girls enjoying playing with the Spider.

Need to take some more photos as these are the last two.

Trendon 1970/71 wide faced Gingham girl in Dollydoodle's long sleeve T shirt and cycling shorts with commercially made Mary-Jane styled converses.

A missed out photo from before of Annaliese.

New Viyella outfit from Betsy-May.

I just love the feel of Viyella, I always dressed my daughter in this lightweight wool material from her 'hand-smocked-round-the- neck nightdresses to her daywear of Paisley patterned pinafores and smocked yoke dresses so was delighted when I saw this Sasha outfit of Mary's made in very this material.

One of my latest Frido 1966 Jeans NP has taken a shine to it, the blue of the bell shaped flower enhancing the colour of her eyes.

Teamed here with a pair of JJs Mary-Jane shoes and commercially made socks.

I also have another of Mary's dresses in Viyella in checked autumnal tones of oranges/beiges with a touch of navy and everytime I dress a Sasha in it it reminds me of my daughter's younger childhood days.
