Oooh, I didn't know there was a Beatrix Potter animated collection! The Colin Firth P&P is one of my favorite movies, also :)

Hello! I found your blog while I was looking for snowdrop dolls (out of curiosity). My daughter, who goes to a Waldorf school, has a Little One named Snowdrop, and snowdrops have been particularly special to us ever since. Here's a link to her Snowdrop: http://saintsandspinners.blogspot.com/2007/12/galanthus-nivalis.html

Anyway, this is all a preamble to say how lovely I thought your Snowdrop doll creation was. I am inspired to make a little felt snowdrop "lantern" for my daughter's Little One now.
