Sixteen legs and Three panties


Maybe I shouldn’t h,ave agreed to take on this project.

But I do like a challenge and trying something a bit new.

My daughter-in-law’s grandmother had planned to make Raggedy Ann/Andy dolls for her great grandchildren. She had selected the fabrics, bought most of the notions–elastic, buttons, m, arkers. She had cut out eight bodies, four pinafores, and sixteen legs and arms and three shirts.

Then she had a health problem and needed to focus on getting well.

And so here I am working on four Anns and four Andy’s.

It isn’t easy figuring out where someone else is in a project particularly if you have never worked with them before. When I worked ER, it was always easy to follow certain other physicians as we both tended to have the same approach, the same thought patterns and treatment plans–although we did not go tot he same school or residency program.

But here I am working away; those legs and arms took three episodes of NCIS to turn; and now I am working on the pinafore straps.
