|Wednesday's Child is Full of Woe|
All that said, when the Wendy Lawton doll collector's group that I belong to, wished to create a Day's of the Week Helper Donation for the UFDC Convention this summer, I grabbed Wednesday so that I could do it a little justice. Wendy herself is donating the 9" doll, and several of us are sewing, others donating beautiful factory made costuming.

|The Arm Band Snaps On|
The little bandaged dolly is one that I've had for several years now. It is very difficult to give up nice little dollies, but they need to have nice lives, too, beyond the closed box.
I just received some yellow fabric in the mail from the U.K. and wouldn't you know, I had a yard of this already! I need to do some serious fabric sorting and storing. I suppose its like office filing. Wouldn't we rather be playing than filing reports? And, yet, its become a necessity. So we take a deep breath and put our paws to work folding and stacking by color. Yes, I'm a Type A mouse!
Next, I'm going to begin a new outfit each for Polly and Lettie. These will be the adorable gym clothes they wear when exercising in the school yard. Little sailor collars give the rompers charm while the girls hold dumbells and a rugby ball. So, I'll get a chance to make some accessories, too.
A nice little rain storm came through last night, and this morning a bit of hail fell. Its the perfect day for tucking in and getting lots of work done.
