I took part of the day off today to make my niece Hazel a much overdue Birthday Gift. She's been all about dolls lately, so I thought I would try my hand at making a rag doll. It wasn't until I started working that I remembered my Grandmother taught me how to sew one afternoon, and our first project was a rag doll. I wish I could lay my hands on that long lost project. I remember her being quite "folkie" in a blue gingham dress, but I can't seem to remember what her face ended up looking like. Ohhh well, just thinking of that day and the pleasure a project like this brought both then and now seems enough.
Thanks to the work of these ladies, which helped to get me thinking about what I wanted my doll to look like.
