"I have been yearning for a black rag doll. Since I can't drive anywhere, and even though I watch the sky in case one should happen to falll in my yard , but no luck so far. f my nerves weren 't so frazzled I could make one as a last resort. There's no need to blow my blood pressure our the roof over it.  . I'm fast getting bey;ond beyond being able to think or see what 'm doling (I yhinkF) so I might as well go on to bed. I still want a black rag doll, period. I'm getting old, fast and I don't need any more reason!!!!!!11So there."

Imagine her encouragement when she receives the package of the lovely dolls shown above.   These were made by Maida Doll Group members for our Christmas Doll Shower.  The variety and hand-made care in these dolls warms my heart, and I hope it will warm the heart of the lady who will be receiving them.  It is so fun to see how different doll makers approach the making of a black doll.    Here are some details of the dolls above:
