Michael and me

Michael and me

I almost had to pinch myself last week when I appeared on Dutch TV’s Graham Norton equivalent (Paul de Leeuw) with not other than Michael Buble. Here he is with the dolls from my Dutch book on their lovely royal family. And no… I didn’t actually touch Michael — though we did talk on TV. He’s a good enough reason to start blogging again isn’t he? Very handsome, young and wealthy – I can see why he has such a beautiful wife!

    I love that. It just goes to show that the fun of knitting can get you places. Thank you for your inspiration.

    Dear Fiona,
    I just watched the show and think your dolls are great! As a dutch native having lived in the UK and now living in Germany with my family I would love my little daughter to play with our and your royal family ;-). I know this is not how it is intended but do you know how I can get into contact with people who could knit these characters for me? I am a terrible knitter and I want it to be a present to my wife as well.

    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Kind regards,

    • Hi Ed Thanks for the kind remarks. The only thing I can think of is to search out some willing knitters perhaps through a knitting group or women’s organizaiton. There are those sites where you can get people to do things ultra-cheaply but I think that could give you a quality control problem. Have you checked out Dutch Ebay? I know when I did my book on the British Royal Wedding, a set appeared for sale on Ebay within a week or so! Good luck and all the best. Fiona
