    posted this on my other site, titled "I hope she will help a child with cancer'...but was so happy with this one in particular, that I needed to share it with you guys as well. For the hair (in case you are wondering....I took 9 strands and used a large eye needle to put them through the fablic to double the amount 2 x's 9=18 pieces of yarn(per side of dolls head) and used 6 strands each to braid and tie off on the end. I repeated on each side for an overall braided hairdo in a dark brown yarn. I took bits of yarn and scraps of fabric and joined them all together for a skirt then joined it to a top for a dress. She wears 'pantaloons'. It was a complete work of joy to do this so totally different doll and I hope you enjoy seeing it. It will go to a child with cancer or other dibilitating illness. The doll is shown front and back for clarity. Hope the good Lord gives me 70 more years to do this kind of thing (but seriously doubt that happening....giggling)

    I can just see some pale little girl's face light up when she is
    handed this new friend. She can talk to it and tell it all her fears and then maybe feel a little bit better.

    Thank you for doing such a lovely act of love.

    here is the link, should you wish to see the earlier dolls. There are a total 18 pages at that link. I have a total 6 dolls waiting to deliver to the American Cancer Society office here in town. Perhaps Monday I'll get them over there. From there they will be sent to the Eureka, CA office as well and perhaps to other places in need. They were down to 2 last time I asked.

    Thanks again for all the sweet and loving replies to this topic. God Bless all.

    Thanks again for all replies. I went to the link and didn't see all the small dolls, so maybe the computer did a hic-cup and dropped them into space somewhere. Hope everyone enjoys whichever ones they did get to see, if they went to the link.

    Vickey.

    Vicki, she is so adorable, and so are you for such a wonderful kind of thing to do. Some little girl that needs it much, will have a friend to snuggle with

    Thanks so much for your kindness in the reply. With a few health issues there are things I cannot do, but this I can do.



    Thanks again.
