    MIGHT take a 2 week vacation....

    because 6 people got together with me last Friday .... and stuffed 27 doll bodies for VERY sick kids, I have been able to complete 8 dolls since then. (boy dolls are fast and easy) One boy doll (child buddy) went out Saturday and these 7 are waiting for a child to love them. It makes a total of 158 dolls made for VERY sick kids.

    If there are no doll requests that consume all seven, I may take a vacation from dolls for two weeks. If not, I'll just keep on keeping on. I hope you will like seeing the dolls.

    I hope none are becoming tired of my posting them. I know several out there enjoy seeing them and hearing about the children. (Most with cancer.)

    I could never get tired of seeing those beautiful young ladies and handsome young men you create.

    Enjoy a few days off and have some fun.

    Thanks Sapphire. I am kind of tired and thinking that if possible, a break would be a good thing. We sent out 9 dolls in under 2 weeks (unusual) so I have really been busy trying to build up a supply again. Glad you liked the kids. HUGS

    thanks so much Chase. I am tired, so maybe this time there will be some more time between sick kids and making dolls. Hugs.

    Thank you Hud. My hubby even agrees (as do I) that they all seem different in some manner. I never know when I begin a doll how it will turn out. I just grab the doll material and it all develops from there. I hug and pray fro each doll always as they are being made (a prayer within my mind), even as they are being sent out, I say the same silent prayer that the right doll goes to the right child and is able to comfort.
