As I was looking through the book, I realized that I may own one of the dolls featured in the book. I have always thought this doll was missing a cape or coat since she was carrying a muff. I also wondered why she was wearing blue shoes and had no other blue clothing on her.
When I purchased the doll in an online auction, I had no idea it was made by Worrell herself until I saw the label.
A friend wrote to me after seeing the post and told me that she had met the author/doll maker and it was delightful story.
It is amazing how things come together. Ten years ago I started studying dolls. Who would have thought there would be so many connections? In addition to this, my new friend who gave me the Worrell baby doll in the original post sent me a link to a book store on line. Coincidentally, it is the same place I bought the Puppendoll books many years ago.
On another note, it is very cool 29F this morning. Yesterday I heard Christmas carols when I was shopping. Thanksgiving and Christmas are not so far away...just like that!
enjoy the day!
