Many Thanks

I want to thank you all so much for your kind and thoughtful comments on my last post. It really means a lot to me, many thanks. I have been in contact with my friends and they are in the process of getting test results. It will be a little time until a plan will be in the works for treatment.
In the meantime I had an idea to make my girlfriend something special.

Way back when before my blogging days, I was making comfort dolls for the Haitian Orphans after the 2010 Earthquake.
There were many knitters who all got together to make comfort dolls for all the children. It was a wonderful project to be involved in. We would meet up and be creative with our needles and really there were some very clever ladies. We sent a box of 75 dolls with some doctors and nurses who were going to Haiti from our local hospital. They were delivered to the hospitals and orphanages. Through the grapevine we heard the children were so thrilled and just hugged and hugged them.
Here are a few of the many.

So I got this idea to make one for Patty. Just a small comfort doll to have by her bedpost. Then she can be comforted and feel some love. I halved the pattern and came up with this.

I put heart buttons on for love and a little skirt and top. Nice ponytail and of course a smile.

I have two others to show you but the above one is for Patty.

These little dolls are such fun to make because the sky's the limit on what you can do. But I think there fun to make because it will go to someone who might need comfort or just something to hug.

I will sign off with another thank you for your kindness. Thanks for visiting, I always love your visits. Be back soon, although I will be away next week visiting my mom and Patty.
