Brrr...I just came in from outside. We had a little snow last night and the girls couldn't wait to "hit the slopes" in the front yard this morning. I've left them to their fun and I'm back inside where its warm. I've been sitting here, reading the comments from the last post and cracking up. I'm really surprised at how many people not only remember Thumbelina, but actually still have their dollies! I felt such camaraderie with you guys knowing that for some reason. Oh I really did! (Maybe we're not ALL so nutty afterall?) Mine no longer has any of the movement capabilities. I'd almost forgotten about that feature because when she stopped working (years ago) I'd done a little 'gentle surgery' and removed all the mechanical parts. Then I re-stuffed her so she's been soft and cuddly for quite awhile. Anyway, thank you for the bonnet love! I've filled in a few more details and answered some questions here, and since there's interest in the pattern I've shared the source for it too.
