    Just wanted to wish all of you a wonderful 2011, and share a picture of a little doll (12 inches high) that I made yesterday. I think she looks like a little Irish doll with her red hair and green dress. I hope you will enjoy seeing her.

    Take care of yourselves and keep up the wonderful job of quilting you all do. I wish each and everyone a bucket of blessings so heavy it cannot be carried. The doll was made from a little Leisure Arts 4 page booklet. (Old one)

    Thanks for the reply and hope weather your way has not caused financial problems or other hardships. We are at sea level and the water soaks up rapidly, but with over a week of rain we do have mild flooding and it is a cold rain. We live 2 and 1/2 miles from the Pacific ocean.

    thanks again.

    Vickey S.

    Thanks to all of you who have replied about the little doll. The making of the doll inspired me as a retired nurse and writer to do a short story. If you want a copy of it, please p.m. me or contact me at my listed e-mail addy.

    Thanks again. Really nice that you enjoyed it. I love the red hair as well.

    Vickey

    Thanks for the PM and it is on its way. I have written tons of different things, so let me know if you want more, or I can add you to my mailing list if you'd like. I have a friend who proof reads and adds backgrounds and music to most of my words, then sends them out to my mailing list and her own. The one I sent you is my newest and think I wrote it at 9:45 a.m. yesterday. I hope you like it.

    forgot to tell you that for the last few years, I have always added LIFE IS GOOD to the end of my writings and it has become like a trademark, and those on my list have grown to expect it. Anyway, a friend from another state, saw the shirt somewhere and figured I needed to have it, so she bought it and mailed it to me for Christmas. We've never met, but she had become a good friend all the same. I am seventy with 13 great grandkids from 1 month to 6 years of age

    Thanks so much for the reply. The little doll is tedious with its small parts. Normally I make larger 'flip dolls' for kids with cancer and other life threatening diseases, but saw this one small one and had to try to make it. I am working on 7 more but will take my time getting them done, then sit them aside for little gifts or something.

    Happy New Year back.

    What a small world. I was born where you live in August of 1940. So was a brother. Mom in Oklahoma City, and my father 'in the panhandle' (Can't recall towns name)

    Happy new year
