Hello Dearies today is not as hot it is going to be a productive day for me. Here is another Sneak Peak of what I am working on today. This another one of my Mammy Kitchen helpers. Maybe I shouldn't call them all kitchen helpers for some of these Gals did more than cook. Most worked out in the field or did laundry.
I enjoy making them often times I get so full of stories that each one of them wants me to speak out for them and share with you. I really can't give you one or even two reasons for my love of making these Mammy dolls each one come to me as a gift that I must produce and share. I can remember when I first started making dolls of this type I caused a bit of controversy. Not to mention the negative feedback that was given to me. One I will always remember is of a young woman who thought I was White and how dare me call myself Mammy Stitches. She went as far as to form a group of others to have my Etsy Shop shut down. I got the last laugh. She didn't realize I belonged to the same Art group I Introduced myself to her that I am Mammy Stitches.
The Mammy name can cause so much of a stir for some. Others it brings back memories, I know the past of Mammy has not always been all good, but I believe in my heart are some precious moments that need to be shared. I want to share those stories of the unspoken Mammy. Some stories who knows may even be true and some just the stories that jumps out from my imagination. Either way I hope you enjoy the Journey as I take you back to a simply time. This also will explain to some why my Mammy's do not have faces as you learn the life of each one I create you will be able to envision that person faces will appear I know they do for me.
I am not a writer nor am I great with putting together proper sentences and paragraphs etc. etc. I am just a woman who Loves Mammy and want to share my gift to the world. Thank you all who have continued to follow me and Hello and thank you to all my new followers. Have a Wonderful Day
Peace and Blessings
