Every time I have to give up a sliver of my anonymity, I freak out. So I was being extra brave when I actually entered an Arts & Crafts Show at the University where I work. Although I have a milliion quilts (okay, less than 300 but it seems like a million), I decided to focus and feature the dolls I have been making.
I think these are "comfort dolls." I did not plan to make dolls; they were just born of my imagination and after each one was created I felt I needed to make a quilt for each. As I was creating the display (totally an extemporaneous event), I realized what a treasure these would be to give to a friend who might be dealing with an illness or grieving over an ended relationship.
Each "set" consists of the doll, the quilt, a journal and a ditty bag. The quilt underneath is one of my favorites and I'm so glad I got to use it for this purpose. I think this whole display is rather cheerful and I'm very happy with it, even though it didn't attract very many visitors. Let me know what you think!
