A Doll A Week 38/52: Fiela

This is Fiela.  She's been here since February of 2006.  She is from Berdine Creedy's 2005 Dressed Up Little Girl's series.  She has a little bit of elf or hobbit in her.  We aren't really certain, but she's a lot of fun.  She does love to where her favorite dress, the one she wore on her trip here.  That's a really good thing, because she doesn't have a lot of outfits to call her own, poor thing!

A Doll A Week 36/52: Sasha

A new girl arrived on Thursday this week.  She came all the way from California.  She looks very young, since we are told she was made in the late 70's!  She's been called Sasha for over 30 years, but is considering a name change.  There are so many names to choose from, it is hard to pick just the right one.
Jen made 3 reversible pinafores using the pattern offered on Sasha Street for a challenge.  We are still waiting for some patterns we ordered to come so that she can make some clothes for the coming cooler days.  If it gets too cold too soon, she does have her long sleeve blue gingham dress that she wore for her journey here.  But she's been wearing that dress for a very, very long time.

A Doll A Week 35/52: Hitty Ginny

This is Hitty Virginia Brown, but we call her Hitty Ginny for short.  She is a Williamsburg Hitty that I adopted from her carve mother, Judy Brown, on March 7, 2009 at a Gaithersburg Doll Show.  She is a resourceful, hard working Hitty.  She loves history, especially the Colonial Period.  This week, she got a notion to work on a special project.  She's been working hard with pen and paper and has wished for fingers to help with some addition and subtraction.  She says she needs to figure out a way to preserve a special part of American History and that if all goes well, she'll tell me more in a few weeks.  I can't imagine what she's up to now!
