Later Thursday Evening

I had to do one more entry tonight.  My son-in-law came by with a gift bag and cards for me.  First was a gift card from "The Outback" .......yum, yum.  And in the gift bag I found a darling little clothes pin doll and quilt top pillow, all hand made by my grand daughter.  The pillow is all sewn by hand and she's done a beautiful job.  At age 14 1/2...she's  perfecting the lost art of hand sewing.  And of course the clothes pin doll is handmade( except the clothes pin of course).  These two items are very special and I will treasure them forever.   

 Thank you...Meghanne....I love them !

Beautiful doll.  My sister and I used to make Victorian Penny Dolls to sell.  We used a wooden mug peg with pieces of doweling for arms and legs.  My favourite one was the Amish one we made.  We sold lots.  Your grand-daughter is on to a really good thing!  Busy hands stay out of trouble.  At least that was my theory when my own kids were growing up!  You have a grand-daughter to be proud of!
