Meet Charity

Let me introduce you to the newest prairie doll in my home - this is Charity. Why Charity?
Well, because I've been thinking a lot lately about 1 Cor. 13; 'faith, hope and charity, but the greatest of these is charity.' It's something we've all experienced through the kindnesses and sympathies of others, but something I need to put in to practice in my own life: to my family, my children my friends, neighbors and even strangers. So in a way this prairie doll is a reminder to me to think of how I can help others. In fact this doll came about because of the helpfulness of another blogging friend - thanks to Loretta for taking the time to tell me about Twigs' freebies and that when I found her prairie doll challenge, which I tried and so Charity came about!
So thanks to one and all who read my blog and leave such encouraging, charitable comments - you all make my day!
While I'm at it I thought I'd show you a couple of other attempts of mine; this was the first prim raggedy Annie doll I made - now please don't laugh at her as she's a sensitive sort

Just thought I'd share a photo of this lovely old ladle I found, all dinged and worn looking

The kids wanted me to show you their 'wee buns' all decorated for Halloween and it was a fun way to spend the afternoon and eat the fruit of your efforts! Yum!
David made the spider, Caralyn put Frankinstein's face on her bun and Cerys and I made the web bun.
We've had a good time together at home this week and I hope you are enjoying yours
Best wishes
