I will make some changes in the next one I stitch, but this one needs to fly off ASAP to bring a smile to my friend. Next time, I would change the panel down the center, definitely should not be pink. I also wonder if an overdye would not be just as effective as the two colors used in the overskirt? I am going to look for a “breast cancer” small print fabric to finish her…any suggestions?
Notice I have not given her a name? I have mixed emotions about giving her a name. My Grandmother used to say that dolls did not need faces because the person that received the doll would see her face and that would become her name. But I always stitch the face first because I think that gives her a personality and usually a name for me. But this time, no name came to me until today when I photographed her. Abagail, came to mind but when I explored my mind to find out why that name came to mind I did not like the thoughts that came to me. I decided I should start with “A” and then I could stitch others for those who might need an angel. I do pray that this is not an omen, and that I need only stitch very few of them. Maybe we all should see if we could stitch something for a breast cancer awareness auction. Does anyone know of such an auction that we could stitch a breast cancer canvas and all the money would go to breast cancer research? I’m game for this.
