Long Doll on the Straw


 The latest charming doll lady I saw was at an outdoor event where we sat on straw bales and listened to Patrick Ball play his mesmerizing Celtic harp.

On the row of bales right in front of us was this dolly, alongside her Little Girl and the Girl's mommy and daddy. I couldn't decide if she was a gypsy or a babushka, but she made me want to sew a doll and dress her in a flowered skirt and a blouse with full sleeves.

Beyond the Girl in the top picture you can barely see the harpist's face up on the stage. I never got to see Long Doll's face.

She was wearing a head covering like many other people that evening, because the wind was blowing through very cold! Yes, even in the Merry Month of May.

Once the Girl grabbed her doll and I got a blurry shot of her willowiness. But she was right away tossed aside.


Long Doll seems to have fallen right asleep where she landed.

This is like the beginning of a little story book...how fun. I have some doll pictures I have thought of posting...in between all else, it has not yet happened.

I am cooling off for a moment in between what I just did and what I am about to do, so thank you for the visit, dear friend.

What a cute lil girl and doll....looks like it was a nice concert. Be sure to show us your doll, if you make one! I need to sew. I think next is an apron.
