    Vicki - The note itself is a great Christmas gift for you! You deserve a whole sack full of "gratefulness" for all your efforts.

    thanks so much to all of you for your wonderful comments on the dolls. I wish I could have been a fly on the wall when the little ones got their dolls. I wish them comfort in the day and in the dark of night with them. The girls are 24 inches high and the boys 28 inches. With my health issues, there isn't a great deal I can do, but this I can, and am honored to have been able to design and sew these for the children so in need of something nice to hold onto, during troubled times. Without the help of so many across the USA including the Netherlands and Japan, I have received fabric and lace, donations, etc, so each doll is full of love from more then just me.

    Thanks again for those words that encourage me.

    thanks a million for the replies. I wish I had enough time to make a doll quilt to go with the dolls. Dolls are 24 and 28 inches high (boys taller). If anyone should wish to help with a doll quilt, please PM me for my mailing address. The dolls are 18 and 20 inches across arm to arm. Do let me know if you are aware of a child in need. I am the only one making these dolls so it might take a while to finish (12 hours for girl dolls) but we will send one the childs way. They are free to child with devestating problems (cancer, etc, abuse....)
