So much has happened in my dolly world in the last month that I really haven’t had time to even breathe about it.
Evie’s brown wig is definitely bringing her a new and wonderful dimension. She catches my breath often and I am enjoying her so much more than before, if that is possible.
But amidst the trunk room, the sewing, the wigging and all the play I was able to have with her in July, something I dreaded reared it’s head. What to do with the OTHERS.
I did my best to avoid the whole issue by staying busy with Evie. But on the last day that I was still in Colorado and packing my suitcase, I realized that I could not fit the baby quilt and clothes and all the rest, so I decided to go ahead and mail a box to Hawaii to save on the amount of stuff to haul with me on the plane.
I only needed a small box, so I looked in the sewing room and pulled down what looked like the perfect box, and when I opened it, there was Pandora. It clenched my heart. I lifted her out and she immediately curled into my hand and had the sweetest smile on her face. I didn’t want her to do this to me. I sat her in the basket chair and tried to pack the box. But I came back to her and held her again. I still think of all the bjd’s I have ever held, the DZ tinies are the best. Darn it.
I came really close to reaching up for the box I knew held Audrey and Hammie. I hesitated. What am I going to do? It’s like I am afraid to see their sweet faces. I know, it seems like a big to do over nothing. I mean most people have no trouble with multiple well loved dolls. I want just one, but love several. Sigh.
And of all the crazy things, I wished I had plopped Audrey, Hammie and Pandy in my carrier and brought them with me. I had made it a whole month without looking at them. Now I wish I could see them, yet I don’t. Grrr. I am still not ready to decide. The thing that made me think of it this morning was that I was wishing Evie didn’t have such long flippy legs. I haven’t tried hot gluing them yet, it is definitely on the list of things to do.
Evie has made a friend of my youngest grandson, but he is a bit rough with her, liking to swing her by the arms. He is fascinated by her foods and toys and of course wants to play with them. I have to hide her stuff. It was cute when he said “Gramma, I am going to see your girl”. I finished a couple of outfits I had made for her and she looks so perfectly Evie.
