Oma carla's Handmades

Have had a stressful time with the separation of our son and his wife and instead of it becoming a simple divorce, things have become complicated. Almost seems like she does not want to let go, yet she is always angry and indicates total dislike of him. Won't go into great detail but it has been stressful because we live on the property. We are entitled to take our house off because it is a transportable but even that costs money, big money. However , we will, if we need to. Lucky we have Trev's sister and her husband because they have a property we can go to. To help relieve the stress I have gone into making rag dolls. It was something I have wanted to do for a long time. I had been collecting fabrics to do quilting but that is rather expensive , so, one way to use up the fabrics. I do three sizes and have named them Travelling Dolls as I thought they would be good travel companions. Here are some of them. They are all named after a next generations, family member and travelling to a particular place, eg Chantal is going to Paris to join the Moulin Rouge and Chelsea is going to Fiji to marry. Having a lot of fun with them and enjoying the project.
