Sue in WA told me about this project, and Sammy mentioned it in her blog - I thought maybe the rest of us would like to know about it! The mission is to make a doll, 6" or smaller, and send it to Pat Winter in Chesterton (sorry, couldn't find the exact address off the top) to be donated to domestic violence shelters to give the women something to encourage them. There is a nice pattern for a butterfly doll at kivett-studio.com/butterflygoddesspattern.html and she has given permission for it to be used for this. We will be starting a local drive in Skagit County for the shelter here, for the women and children, shortly. We may start one later, for the new Children's Grief Center at United General Hospital. A little doll may be the perfect thing to ease the beader's block while doing your pages! It also gives some of us a little push to mix media. Anyone who has more info, please comment!
