Amy Anna
would like a new dress to celebrate the arrival of some new members to the Doll Family at Bleat'n Hum baa Farm'n Fiber.

She is finding inspiration from 
"A is For Anna Bell"
and
"The Dolls' Christmas"
By Tasha Tudor 



Missie and Mildred offered to help me with the project 

and Missie will learn how to use a treadle

 (perhaps Friend Miss Tillie Tinkham  
Seamstress Mouse at Corgyncombe
can share some pointers)

MaMa Mildred is eager to start measuring!

Pollina would like a pretty dress too!
And also would like a red wool peddler's cape and goods.

Aunt Bitty does not approve!
(actually she never approves of anything....
in fact her last name is Bitterish)

Beautiful "Bella" joined in March

And Sisters "
Miss Mamie and Miss Emily .....

..... joined only weeks ago! 
They were sitting in an old restaurant
decorated and packed with many antique curiosities
all dusty and with price tags on all!
Ten dollars for each doll!!! But I only chose one!

 The lady said that the dolls were from a collector who made clothes and repaired old dolls. Home I went in love indeed....but a sleepless night 
sent me soon back for the other and a HAPPY reunion was a grand result!!!

  ..~.~..
"It's an anxious, sometimes 
dangerous thing to be a doll.
Dolls can not choose;
they can only be chosen;
they cannot "do";
they can only be done by;
..~.~..
Children who do not understand 
this often do wrong things,
and then the dolls are 
hurt and abused and lost;
and when this happens
dolls cannot speak,
nor do anything except
be hurt and abused and lost.
  ..~.~..

                                                               
If you have any dolls 
you should remember that."
                       The Dolls' House
                         by Rumer Godden

Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.

                                            Meet some of  the Dollies that live at 
                                             The Bleat'n Hum Baa Farm'n Fiber


This is PAMMY!
My very FIRST bestist ever Dolly
since I was 2yrs 
we were inseparable
(in braids)
 with her long time friends 
Bitzy and Gretalynn

My Grandma "Omi" made this for Pammy.


Once as a Child my family had the great opportunity
 to visit a museum in Chicago. I was allowed to pick 
a souvenir and this beautiful Japanese Doll was my choise!


 Here is Mini and Minier along with Peg-doll Penny
and some Amish lill'ins

An Aunt who lived in New Mexico
used to send me the neatest gifts for no reason,
and Heidi was the most beloved surprise in a package!
The Older Girls down the street out grew Ginny, (right)
 and Cecile was acquired when I was a Teen at a yard sale

(She wants the Teddy)!


A pair of Dutch Dolls
brought back by Mommy
from a visit to Germany

Sweet yard sale finds

Greek Dolls
brought back by an Aunt


Also...
..there is another NEW addition
to the Family
Please Welcome:
 "Ashley Maggie May"

Many Blessings Warm Hugs and Love,

There Is Another Sky

By Emily Dickinson
There is another sky,
Ever serene and fair,
And there is another sunshine,
Though it be darkness there;
Never mind faded forests, Austin,
Never mind silent fields -
Here is a little forest,
Whose leaf is ever green;
Here is a brighter garden,
Where not a frost has been;
In its unfading flowers
I hear the bright bee hum:
Prithee, my brother,

Into my garden come!
