The Coats Off Their Backs. And Blankets, and Blouses…
From my description for O.L.D. No. 64, Helen the Unlikely Hero. You can see her adoption page HERE:
I want you to know, I don’t go around to friends houses and immediately start cutting up their clothes. But when a friend mentioned that she was getting rid of “this rack of clothes here,” and I spotted a gray jacket, I POUNCED. And she willingly gave it to me. So! From the cutest gray jacket EVER (that definitely wouldn’t fit me. This friend is very tiny), I finally got to make a gray coat for a doll, just like I always wanted. It’s double-breasted with a deep pleat in the back and it’s fully lined.
Besides being a Hero, who got my out of my doldrums, Helen is the first Simplicity O.L.D. of 2016! I’ve decided that Simplicity dolls shall always have jammies. Helen was also gifted with a robe.
So to all of you who have given me things, and there are MANY, Brandi, Cheryl, Coppelia, Diane, Janey, Jane, Jennifer, Jule, Julie, Jennifer and Suzanne, to name a few, I say THANK YOU. I shall continue to strive to put such things to good use. Your sacrifices shall not be in vain!
O.L.D. No. 63 (poet!) Thyme was adopted by…Lorrie N., of Monroe, Michigan! Lorrie also received a free book as promised for O.L.D.’s who go over a certain amount. She had me dedicate it to her sweet husband, who – as all good husbands do – indulges her in her love of dolls. Thank you, Lorrie! Thank you, Frank!
Go Broncos! Unless you’re going for the other team. I’ve heard there was one…kidding!
