Working on Christmas
My sister became aware of the family's situation, asked permission of the anonymous family member to swing into action for the sake of the children involved, and was given permission. So, the whole family from Oklahoma, Florida, Maine, Ohio, and Indiana are all chipping in to help Santa. We might guess who the family member is but no one is mentioning names.
I volunteered to make another pocket doll for the little girl in the family. This will be my 4th. I have all the little clothes made, the pocket with her closet and bed almost finished, and the doll herself yet to be started. I'll post pictures when it is finished.
For the little boy I am making a small quilt. It won't be fancy--no time--besides I am sure he would rather have a fancy print than an intricately pieced design. I went through my stash and found some panels from the Disney Movie, Cars. Perfect for a little boy! Even better, when I was shopping over the weekend I found a coordinating print for the back on sale. Was this quilt meant to be or what?! With a lot of luck, I will finish it this weekend. I'll post pictures.
Ho Ho Ho! I hope you are feeling as good about your Christmas!
