Paperdoll Block

REBECCA goes to stay
at GRAMMY'S house
for two weeks....she
learns how to do
YO-YO's...and to
stitch a hexagon

We lived in Arkansas, and my mother wanted Rebecca to fly to Montreal to visit her for a couple of weeks.  I was just too nervous to let Rebecca fly by herself when she was only 9 years old.  Consequently, she never went by herself but still had lots of good visits with her grandmother.
Rebecca has her grandmother's drawing and painting talent :)
Isn't the little hexagon adorable?  It's a l/2" size.  The little yoyo's are the "extra small" size.  The skeins of embroidery floss is really floss, embroidered to look like real skeins!  The little embroidery of the dog was very difficult, because it was so teeny.....Don't you love the red tomato pincushion?  The pins with the different colored heads are so real looking, they are french knots.  I love the red mary jane shoes, too.  Don't they bring back memories?
