A doll is born.

Hello! My name is Molly (for now). I am going to visit a lady who is a little bit old, and she likes fancy names like Arabella, so I may get a new name, which will be fun. :>}. She is lonely because her husband is resting in Heaven and can't live with her anymore. Her children visit often, but she's still lonely when she's by herself. Having a cheerful person like me around is just what she needs!
My dress has two sides, and they both have ric-rac on them. We dollies like ric-rac on our dresses.

Jodie made the pattern, and her blog name is Ric-Rac, so she must like ric-rac a lot, too! I haven't got my cardigan yet, but it's summer so I won't be needing it for a while. Do you think my arms stick out too much? They are supposed to look like a big hug for the lady who is a little bit old.




This year the hydrangeas are low on foliage and high on flowers. Nice!

Diana , that is exactly right !! I did try to make huggy types of arms, and arms that are a bit sticky-out for little hands to dress. I do hope your friend with the busy husband likes her new friend.
I love your dolly!!!

Diana, I know Molly will be happy in her new home and the lady who is a little old will be happy too.
Open arms, mean a big hug.
The hydrangeas look so beautiful.

Diana, Molly has always been one of my favorite names. In fact, if I had had a daughter, I was planning on naming her that. Since I had sons, that didn't work out. HA!

Your doll is very cute, and I'm sure she will be a comfort to the lady who is a little old. I like her reversible dress with the ric-rac too.

Your hydrangeas are beautiful!
