Do you recognise my babies? After Maggie girl, and Hamish died Sandy was (as many were) so very supportive. Sandy told me in a little note within this parcel that she contacted Mo,of froyandolo, and asked her to make me some cards. Mo visited my blog and read about my love for the furry ones and made these beautiful sets of cards and tags: Maggie and Hamish, Hamish alone and Maggie alone. Mo then refused to take payment because she had read the blog and understood. Do you see why I cried? My furries, who I miss so much (even with the dear little Archer asleep on my lap and Phantom by my side); permission to remember, the kindness of two women; one I have not met face-to-face and the other I had never heard of. How my heart swells.
This sweet doll has so much detail, even 24 hours later I am still finding stitches and charms, patterns and pictures. Each time I turn her over I get a lump in my throat; her label says: 'Julie's doll August 2007' - those simple word's move me. Sandy has some of her beaded work headed for a gallery (in New Hampshire) very soon - pop over to her blog and have a look.
