Comfort Dolls from Gail Pierce
In the mail today were four Comfort Dolls created by Gail Pierce of California. Gail is a member of an online group named ExpressionStudio ,and several of them got together and created dolls for the Comfort Doll Project where we send to shelters around the country for battered women in transition to warm their hearts and let them know she is being thought of with these tokens of love and compassion.
As you can see, they are works of fiber ART. Gail used a woven technique for two of her dolls in cheerful fibers, and hand painted and embellished her fabric for the two thinner ones. Very cool designs which I had never seen. These will be a delight when received. Gail was concerned over the size of the woven dolls however, the head and feet fold nicely and will fit within the 6" requirement.....but, you know rules and I do not mix well, so either way, they would be accepted, passed on, and loved.
Thank you so much Gail for your lovely and thoughtful creations for the Comfort Doll Project. I am thrilled your group wanted to join in. Thank you for the lovely fabric too, you know that will be used!
