Dear reader, this poppet is looking for a warm, loving home. I have not named her as yet, but every time I make a doll I think of dear Charlotte, the simple rag doll so lovingly fashioned for Laura Ingalls by her mother, which she was then obligated to let the horrid little neighbor girl abduct and decimate, only to discover the doll months later, strangled, missing an eye, lying face down in a frozen puddle.
To this day that story gets me worked up, I'm telling you!
At any rate, back to the matter at hand. If you are interested in taking care of this doll and never allowing some pushy kid to ride roughshod over your possessions, then here is the giveaway for you. Simply leave a comment below and I will be back on Friday to announce the winner.

eta: Dear reader, I'm sorry to be delinquent with announcing the winner of this poppet. Things have been so busy--I keep missing my window of opportunity. I will draw and announce a winner on Monday, so there is still time to enter this contest! Best of luck to everyone.
