We have a new cousin!

Here is a new cousin.
Maman has been saving her dollars and they have added up.
She saved them for a while before buying Ellowyne and now this new cousin.
Her name is Daisy.

Daisy is a Kestner mold in Bleuette size. The original Daisy doll was first made in 1911 by a German company for a ladies magazine in the USA. Daisy was 18" tall. Someone got the idea to make Bleuette size Daisy's and they are called Daisyettes! A lady named Beth Golding made our Daisy.
Maman likes her face paint and her wig.

Maman made Daisy her very own hankie dress. She also finished ThierrySucette's hankie dress, which was won in the draw many weeks ago. Maman is terribly slow these days. Maybe she should stop buying things like dolls and just concentrate on sewing!
That is me, Helena, wearing ThierrySucette's new dress. I'm modelling it. Hopefully I will get a winter dress in time for Christmas. Anyhow, I did get new socks and new black shoes.
Love from Helena
