des Fee

Last week a friend gifted us with the most enchantingly beautiful book

It is written entirely in French and comes with a CD full of ethereal fairy music.

Despite only being able to translate the stories in a very roundabout general way, by picking out phrases here and there, the book is already a favourite.

It has also really motivated the girls (me, us) to polish up our French!

Can't be a bad thing can it.

    Well, I saw on the tv about your queen so now I know what all the hoopla was about, very fun!

  3. So many cute knitted items for those dolls. I see they are going to be quite happy with their stockings. What a wonderful book too. I know no French, so it would require a lot of lessons.

  5. It must be so wonderful to knit dolls clothes for a living - I love instant gratification projects but noone here is young enough for dolls.
    The book looks great!

  11. The dolls are all looking fabulous in their hand knits. Love the little skirt and sweater on doll #1. How sweet to have a special book like that. Have you tried using one of the on line translators?
