    I think she is beautiful .... Momma made dolls when she wasnt making quilts ... sometimes the ties just spilled into the doll world .... she was an awesomely creative woman made her own patterns ....... hope you enjoy

    note the dress is ties

    the cape is so very pretty and it has a fur collar to match the hat ....momma made them both ... how could I miss quilting and dolls with her for a teacher

    Wow, Momma was a talented woman. Isn't it interesting that OT's used quilting as therapy. We should be doing this much more than we do. Its a great way to teach math too!
