Hello My Name is Fanny Mae James. Please call me Fanny for I think my parents had a sense of humor to give me three first names. No James is not my last name, that would be Hill. Only time I heard all three names being called at me is when mother was in such a temper about something, which didn't take much for her. She had been this way every since father was taken off to fight in a war that had no substance for us. Mista over on the Flint plantation gathered up all the able colored men's to come help fight in a war which put the colored men's on the wrong sides of the fence. Mother cried many nights I could hear her whimpers as I laid pretending to be sleep.
Times grew harder for it left six women to tend a land that would have taken 12 men to work it. We did the best we could, sitting out on the front porch I'm starting to catch a chill. Seem like the seasons are changing around us, almost time for harvest don't know how we gwan gather up the crop and then take it into town to try and make a few dollars. Mother says with the Lords will we gwan be just fine.
Hey everyone as you can see the chair arrived and I love it! but after further examination of it I can tell that it was once a rocker a some point. The height is so short but it works out fine for the dolls. They sit nicely in it and their legs have a natural hang. I been feeling under the weather for about a week now. Today we are going to have a major snow storm, maybe it will not be as bad as predicted you never know weather folks sometimes can be a little too dramatic. This just gives them something to talk about lol. For a few days I have been trying to blog but for some reason was not able to comment on post kept getting error messages so please don't think I have abandon you all. I am still trying to push these dolls out waiting on more wool for hair. So I have been making a few shawls for some of them to wear. Once I get all the dolls finished I will post pictures of them with their props. I have been showing the dolls as they are in last stages of completion.
So I am going back to sewing and praying I don't get snowed in this weekend.
Peace and Blessings
