    dolls 118 to 123 for VERY sick kids went out today

    here are the pictures of dolls 118 through 123 that are going out this coming week via the American cancer Society. 4 girls are shown inside and outside, and boys turned front to back to show oth faces. One boy has on a shirt that came all the way from Japan.

    I hope you enjoy seeing them.

    I have 9 more girl dolls I am working on too finish. they have outside dresses and I have to make the nightgown part.

    Take care out there

    Hugs to you and yours

    I am sure that these will make the children a little happier. Someone they can tell all of their hopes and dreams along with all of their sorrows at present. What a wonderful piece of yourself to give to others. thanks for sharing

    thanks so much for what you have said. I appreciate your taking time to read and reply. I apologise that I made the pictures too small so the faces can't be seen. I will try to put the larger version on, if it will download.

    Thanks again.

    Don't know the size of the dolls, but I have doll clothes patterns you may be able to use.

    first of all hoping you saw the thank you on the PM.

    secondly, I use a 6 month size for the boy dolls, and the bottom of the skirts for the dolls are 16 by 24 each (2 rectangles) so probably won't fit. Thanks for being willing to help. I appreciate all you have already done. That was wonderful of you.
    I wish I had some dolls that your clothes would fit. What fun it would be to sew for them. Thanks friend. I really appreciate your offer.
