    One forty-eight and counting

    Have just completed the last of 148 dolls and hope you will enjoy seeing them. These go out free to children with devestating illness.

    Most go to children with cancer.

    Thanks to all of you for stopping to see the dolls. I just got the faces and hats on the last two yesterday evening. I hope the child they go to will sense all the love that went into them from start to finish. Hugs to you all

    I just love looking at your dolls. They are dressed so wonderfully. I know the children will be tickled pink to receive these.

    Thanks for stopping by. I live in Crescent City and the nearest large town is 86 miles away in California and 100 miles to the nearest large city in Oregon. (Hope that made sense)

    a friend is hosting a website for me, and it will be a continued ongoing one, if you want to book mark it and check back. Tidbits and more stories, photos etc are soon to be on the way.

    Thanks again, and God Bless you and yours. If it were not for the quilting quild, not near so many dolls would be made. Here is the doll website link.

    thanks so much near norash. The next 5 going out will have your doll quilts, that you so lovingly made for them included. One will go out soon (unless I find he or his family don't want it....) to a child around 5 years old, in California who has Leukemia.

    Thanks for taking time to comment.

    What inspired you to do this? It is a great idea and I applaud your dedication. Without people like you, this would be a dreary world indeed.

    Vickey, thank God there are unselfish and understanding people - like YOU - in our world! Your story of how you came to create your dolls, and the stories of the dolls are marvelous. When I viewed the website my heart was touched and, yes, tears came to my eyes. I can only imagine the warm feelings and smiles that they children receiving a doll has....not to mention the heart felt thanks from their parents.

    May God bless your ministry and those who help you.

    Thanks so much to all of you for coming to my post and taking time to comment. I am glad you like my dolls. By Tomorrow 5 dolls will no longer be at my home, as they are being mailed out tomorrow to 4 with Leukemia and 1 with inoperable brain stem cancer. the 4 are in N.C. at a childrens hospital and the other child lives in Georgia. Another will be either delivered Sunday or mailed by then, so that makes 6. The one left is the one on the top right hand side. No one mentioned that any of the children are Hispanic or African American, and the remaining doll would suit a child of that culture better. Of course as the ACS lady said, the children don't care. It is the adults that have the problem.


    I hope the dolls will bring happiness.

    Hi Vickey! Hello from South Carolina. I always love seeing your dollies and look forward to newly completed ones that go to wonderful children that are touched by your love and your prayers that you say over each dollie. What a giving and unselfish, loving person you are...
    Your sister, eternally, in the Body of Jesus Christ,
