What are you most proud of? The quirkiness of the doll and the way she stands up on her own. She is quite detailed in that she has sardines in her apron pocket, a fishing rod with a fish on it, little fish earrings and a another big fish under her arm. I've made her as a surprise present for a lady who lives on the Cornish coast where there is a large fishing community, and with whom we are going to have a holiday shortly.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It all goes together a lot more easily that you would think. You would need proper tools for turning the fingers, but they are easily available on the internet. The pattern is by Jill Maas, a designer who lives in New Zealand and is very easy to follow.

Patz, she is terrific.

Thank you! I hope the lady I've made it for will like her - I think it's one of those presents the recipient will either love or hate!

Patz, I'm laughing so hard! She is simply adorable! I absolutely love your little ladies, each on so original. You have such an imagination and a great sense of humor, too.!

Fishy Flossie seems to make everyone smile! I've been in touch by email with Jill Maas, the pattern's designer, and have sent her photographs as well. She's the clever one - all I've done is follow her very clear instructions and had a lot of fun doing so!
