...Or, December blessings!
Sorry to have been absent, but Cloth Doll Designs has been surprisingly busy. Our third and final Craft Fair is coming up December 10 in Hagerstown, MD, from 10 - 4, and then immediately off to our THIRD baby shower of the year ... this one for my oldest daughter Becky. YES! All three of my children had/are having BABIES this year.
We're busy fulfilling custom orders - happily! - and the Doll Cave is starting to overflow with scraps and half finished Waldorf dolls. Between times it's bee a blessing to relax making LinusProject. Org comfort blankets for hospitalized children. As many of you know, this summer NTSOG's beloved German Shepherd suddenly reverted to his K9 predator instincts and critically mauled our 3 year old granddaughter. She was airlifted to Johns Hopkins Hospital where it took a team of 5 surgeons 4 hours to put her back together. The personal guilt and trauma will never go away - and obviously tensions between our families are palpable. But while visiting her in the hospital I learned that all children there are presented with a "comfort blanket"" made by volunteers in the area. The fact that a stranger somewhere had cared enough to make make a frightened child's hospital stay just a bit less traumatic was so touching I signed up to make these blankets as well...although it might be said that's I've become a bit obsessed lately.
