My Doll at the Poles

I have my two dolls done for my great grand daughters when they come.  And now I have their outfits done for their trip to the poles. photo-on-11-12-16-at-7-24-am

You see they each have their snow suits with warm fuzzy jackets and big snow boots.  They each have a fish and a penguin.  My pattern book calls this “The North Pole” outfit but even my great grand daughters know that penguins are not at the north pole so I guess these two went to both poles for their trip.  First I have to make a camera for the girl in pink and then I’ll start on the sleeping outfits.  I hope to get all five outfits done for them before Dhana and Gina come some time in the New Year.

This gives you a better look at her camera.  It is really a camera bag so she can carry her personal items with her on her trip.  I will make one for the other doll in pink I guess to match her outfit.  This picture also gives you a better look at the fish they caught.photo-on-11-12-16-at-7-25-am-2

Here is a closer look at the animals they brought back with them. photo-on-11-12-16-at-7-25-am-3

A last good bye to the girls.  At present they have no names, that will be up to Dyhana and Gina to give them a name.  You can see how much fun I am having with them now. I know the grand daughters will have just as much fun when they get together to play with them.  I bet Gina will play with her doll before that as she will be coming here on days that there is no school, like Thanksgiving or Christmas break.  Have a great day and find something fun to do today.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
