    The dolls are adorable. What a kind and generous thing to do.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Hello............I make scrappy quilts and have shown some on the this site. Several have asked me how I have come by so many scraps..... I know how fulfilling this project is for you because I also work with an Arkansas ministry that make caps for women and children who have lost their hair because of cancer treatments and the caps are shipped to hospitals and cancer centers all over our country and given free of charge and with lots of love and prayers. To date about 40,000 have been made. (More info on Care Cap Connection can seen on the internet.)(See my threads)
    Anyone who sews with this projects can take as many scraps as they what (hence, my scrappy quilts). Many say what a great and nice person I am for doing the sewing for this ministry, but as you and I know, it is we who receive the blessing! God bless..............Linda

    I've seen your work posted before. This is just fabulous. Since the new website, I didn't keep all the pms, so if you will send me your address in a pm, I'll donate some things for your dolls, too.

    It is indeed we who get the blessings. Wish I could find some spare time somewhere, but with what I do and my health, it seems impossible. Crazy quilts for the dolls would be great for the children to have for their dolls. Maybe someday?? Thanks for your reply

    if you happen to have a yard and a half of white fabric for a nightgown, that is what I am most in need of right now...even a used nice white sheet will make two or three nightgowns if they are in pretty good shape. I've used them before. That is what I need the most, if you can spare it. Thanks for anything you can do to help. It is always appreciated.

    It was quiet and nice...family so far away, so just enjoyed it and then got back to more dolls. Wasn't able to tell you I was selected LOCALLY for a recognizition of achievement by the Soroptimist club, which may or may not carry a monetary award (up to $300) with it. I get the certificate at an awards lunch at a local place March the 13th, and if you send me an e-mail, then I can tell you how it goes. I feel honored for sure. When I get the e-mail, I will show you the latest 6 dolls. I'm trying to get dresses made ahead....seems faster when the dresses are ready. I'm having a problem on internet overusing data and ending up with extra charges we can't really afford, so am trying for next 2 days to limit myself to no more then 3 one hour segments. I'll get on again around 2 or 3 to check e-mails again. I'm going to call the company, as we just got a 4G Mi-Fi modum that works everywhere, bu is causing unexpected charges. We may have to return it and find something more approbriate. Anyway, will get a picture sent your way. Hugs to you and yours and thanks for all you do. Vickey (Glad you found my link again. I wish I could post pics of the new dolls here, but as I said, I don't know how to do it with this newer look.)

    12 more dolls....

    I will be starting a new topic which hopefully will show the new dolls as they are being produced. For some reason I cannot figure out how to add more pictures here, of the dolls I make for sick kids, so I will try to do a 'new topic or post' so those of you who are following the doll pathway, will still be able to see them. The first page of the new postings showing 12 dolls will link back to this page, if I am successful.

    Thanks from the bottom of my heart for all the love and support I've received so I've been able to continue on with them. These make a total of 79 (counting one that came in a kit type package) and I hope to get 100 total as a minimum of dolls I have so far made....before the year is out.

    God Bless you all and hope you will find the new topic and get to see the latest dolls. I made so many in such a short time, that my hands (fingers) are super sore....so will deliver these 12 and take a short break...restart sometime in February.

    Again...thanks for your support.

    These 8 dolls are crowded up on the bed of our spare bedroom. They are waiting for a VERY VERY VERY sick child to become someone they can love and comfort. These of dolls 83 to 90 so far. I hope you like seeing them.

    You are doing such a great thing or the kids. God bless you.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    It is so kind of you to create these dolls to children with cancer. I know each and every one is loved and appreciated. Surely you are one of the angels here on earth.

    I love all your dollies! The one with the Jesus Loves Me ribbon on the bottom skirt is my favorite. You rock!!! I believe you will hear our Lord say, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." May God bless you and keep you, may his face shine upon and give you peace..."
    Just PM me and I will be honored to help with materials.
