Hi my Name is Willow I am the 7th child of Hattie Mae. The youngest born from what is told January 20, 1892. I sitting waiting patiently while Mammy Sara finishes up my dress. For I will be the first to go off to get schooling. Everyone is so happy and proud that I was offered this oppertunity for not many get that chance. This is the first time I had a new dress that was not worn by someone else I know I am going to look as fine as the girls who live in the big brick house that sit up on top of the hill. Mammy Sara been working on this dress for two days now she says everything is almost done. Mother thought shoes would arrive but none came Mammy Sara said dont worry child your going to be prettier than any picture ever taken.
So I sit and wait..
I am soooooo tired but I must keep on working. I am still waiting for some wool to come in. Today I am going to working slips and bloomers, can't have the girls going around without the proper undergarments. I love the fabric I have made this dress from it is a reproduction coloinal fabric. I was so happy when the fabric arrived I brought several different colors. The brown I am using now is almost 3 shades darker than what I have been using before and I like this much better. I need to get busy will show the finish doll later Peace and Blessings Cheryl..Snatch JOY~!
