I mentioned on another thread the other day that I was making a doll for one of my gt. grandaughters.
Well I made all these ringlets, sewed them on the head, made a fringe, and then as an after thought, turned it around.
Well, she looked like Bonnie Langford with a bad case of alopecia.
So now I am frantically crocheting more ringlets, ti in-fill the head.
Yes folks, these are the things that us grannies and great grannies get up too instead of posting on GR. LOLOL

Island , I do consider myself very lucky in being a Gt. Granny. It just doesn't always feel .like it.
But I would not be without any of them.

My role (only as a Grandma, so far :-D) is easy. As I cannot knit, sew, crochet, cook, or do anything useful, I just sing to them and tell them stories of my youth and other tall tales :-D <3

LaGooner, have sat on the floor many a time playing with dolls and train set (with grchildren) and cleaned cake mixture and food colouring off walls. lol.

Oh BC I bet your grandchildren love to hear your stories.

Don't worry Von I have revived the thread or may have killed it again lol.
