I LOVE THIS!
When I did my presentation at the Museum, a very precocious & adorable young girl was in attendance. Her mother is on the Monte Arts Council (MAC) board with me. Grace took great interest in my program. I found she was collector of fairies, so I sent her a fairy I had made a few years back from a pattern by Patti Maderas Culea. I have started "cleaning" out many of my earlier dolls....after all there's only so much room to store things & I keep making more! Anyway, Grace attended our MAC meeting last night & gave me this note, which "Mother was supposed to have given me a long time ago". What a treasure!!!!
Meanwhile, I haven't posted much lately. Been working on garden stuff. In fact have 3 tomato plants in 5 gallon buckets, that are a good 2' high and one has over a dozen tomatoes, which will soon be ready to eat, and the other 2 are blooming and making little ones. Yummmmm.
I have also been busy with doll making. Finished my Hoffman Challenge doll, and spent the last week working on a "Blue" Fairy. I'm trying to do more bead work, so did cut outs and beads all over her bodice. Spent one whole day trying to decide on her hair do. Finally wound up with some of the mohair I traded for, dyed a pale blue and felted. When I get her beaded necklace done I'll post her picture. Meanwhile just had to show off my Thank You note!
