    They are just too cute.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Thanks to you for your replies. Having finished these 9, am going to kind of rest my hands a couple days, then do some partial sewing on doll dresses and doll bodys (I have 15 girl bodys to sew up) then cut more fabric out, so when I want to start decorating the skirts on the dresses and getting bodys stuffed, it will go faster for me. I am not one to organize well, but I am trying. 2 ladies at my little church have my remaining white fabric and will cut out nightgowns for me, ao that is a great help as well. Five out of state ladies have requested a doll pattern kit to sew themselves for the VERY sick kids, so that is wonderful and warms the heart to know more kids will be helped by them. You guys are wonderful. For a long time, it was only me to put the dolls together, and the dolls moved slower, now help comes from all around, and more kids are helped. I appreciate you all more than my words can say. Thanks.

    Thanks Nagi. Several woman now (hopefully) have asked for a doll kit pattern and promised to make a doll for a minimum of 1 VERY sick child. It encourages me to send them out and hope more kids get one, now then I alone could supply.

    These are great. I have a thread going about comfort dolls for battered women (or whereever they might be of use) that is being sponsored by SewNews. Ya gotta love us quilters - we are truly community minded!

    can you please post a link to that for the battered woman in a PM for me? I'd love to read about it. Two of my dolls went to a local shelter for the children who come with their battered mother, to play with, if they wish, while their mother is getting couseling to help out. Earlier this year, we took new and donated stuffed toys to the shelter for each child to have, till they run out. (Over 100 I think that were all new)

    thanks
