Elinor peace bailey

Last month we revealed our challenge dolls made using the pattern in Elinor peace bailey ‘s book, “Mother Plays with Dolls”.  I posted the photos on our page and on my Facebook page.

I was happy with all the wonderful responses and with Elinor ‘s reaction:

“Well I am agog for sure. I am so proud and happy to be recognized. Thanks to all of you. couldn’t have done it without you”

We have loved and continue to love playing with dolls. Elinor ‘s spirit and patterns have provided us with hours and hours of creativity and joy!
