I was looking for something in my cedar closet today and unfolded a blanket and guess who fell out. Well I don't even have a name for her except baby doll. This doll was given to my daughter when she was a little girl by a neighbour who had 2 boys and it had been hers when she was a girl. I really don't remember Sue playin with her very much as she had a few favorites of her own at that time. She probably laid around until maybe 8-10 years ago when I found her and decided to make her a dress and clean her up a bit. She was almost bald with no clothes that I could find. I made her this crazy quilt bodice dress and bought her a wig to cover the bald head. She really looks quite cute now. The wig is just sitting on her head as I never glued it on or cut it any special way.

I will put her in a box and give her to Sue to put away for a someday grandaughter of hers.

I am starting to feel better. I am down to 1 pain pill a day plus some muscle relaxants. I have a dentist check-up at 1 tomorrow and then a 2.15 appt. with our internist to discuss this headache. I am wondering if it is a sinusproblem.
They are very close to each other so no problem getting from one to the other.

She's a beautiful doll! Glad you're feeling somewhat better too. Maybe it is a sinus problem but you would think the dr. should have checked for that when you first went. Hopefully you can get something to make you back to 100%.

How cute is that! A tiny crazy patchwork bodice! You've done a lovely job of the doll, Freda - I just hope one of your grandchildren will appreciate that this is a real family heirloom.
