You know about Susie (I operated and her cataracts are now gone). When I went to a show at the fair grounds, I now also have another little one but w/o an arm. She will be repaired. Two nights ago my daughter found an old doll of her sisters. . . she was cold (she had put her in the trunk). . . AND she was bare butt naked. YIKES! Is that a way to treat a doll??? I think not. I found some 'make do' clothes and a towel until I could finish cleaning all the doll clothes I had recently found for Susie. Now I have three girls. No, I am NOT collecting dolls - is that what you all say? Circumstances are such that I happen to have three dolls. As you can see, I have plenty of work to do. Her fingernails are painted courtesy of the older sister. Don't know how to take (what looks like ink) dirt off her face. She is rubber and she makes noises, oh, I guess we don't have to be made of rubber to make noises. Enjoy, Blessing, Janet
God, family, and friends are most important. Crocheting art dolls for my nursing home friends and oldsters are a new challenge that I look forward to. Everyone needs someone. . .I learned from my friend that having a doll friend is sometimes the only companion that can be related to especially in times of loneliness. I try to carry them with me so I can give them away as needed. I love to see their faces as they choose their doll.
