  6. I enjoyed your post(on SewWeQuilt) so much! Your dolls are beautiful - but everybody tells you that! Loved Addellene's story, and she is so lovely. Thanks for sharing your talents with all of us!

  7. Hi Cheryl there she is "Addellene". I remember when I first saw this on Madame Samm's site I sent her an email and she told me it was for a future give-a-way and I ws blown away then. So I came over here and found all the dolls that you do and became a follower then. Your talant is awesome. But then again dolls intrigue me. I did not grow up having dolls it just wasn't natural in my house and I really do not want to go into any past stuff so just suffice to say that your dolls are wonderful and truly beautiful. Good luck on your journey in quilting. If you ever need a extra opinion or have any questions just feel free to email me. I am not the worlds greatest but have done sane quilting for well over 20 years and just got into art quilts in the last year or so. Well take care of you and thank you for sharing your beautiful dolls with us....

  54. So glad to see the gal behind the dolls. Beautiful work and wonderful story behind the faceless dolls. I grew up in the 50's, in the South, so until the mid-60's my life included few black women. But they were all wonderful, strong women. I would be honored to have Addellene come to live at my house, but she might have to have another name: Elsie, a most wonderful and talented lady I knew from Clarksville, TN
