snow and corn stubble

a mild february in vermont
(usually by this time that stubble would be deeply buried under mounds of glittering snow)

cathy: yes, i make all the dolls
many of my patterns come off of ravelry.com
though i often change them up a bit
the yarn i'm using now was in the stash of a nurse who died from cancer last year,
far too young.
she cared so deeply for the underserved and the maginalized.
every penny of the sales of these dolls goes to support the 37 orphans at
orphelinat foyer evangelique
in haiti

I'm getting a little tired of our snow. I think I prefer this.

This image reminds me of no-mans land from All Quiet on the Western Front. I appreciate the noble cause of your doll sales.

Your creativity and skill are amazing, made more so by your charitable heart. Thanks for sharing that. And this photo - very geometric!

Great photograph, great cause.

Lots of patterns in the snowy field.

Our snow is melting, hurrah. May there be no more here this year.

I am touched by your doll project.

Strangely, this field makes me think of a war cemetery...

It's a nice texture. Pretty for late winter. The dolls have a lot of character; I'm a huge fan of ravelry.

We got more snow last night. And we'll get more. I'm resigned to that fact.Bye bye corn stalks.

Lowell said...

A mild winter is a blessing. Kudos to you for your work with the dolls!

Interesting that, like Doug and Malyss, my first thoughts were of a war front . . . Strange.

Jack said...

The corn stalks and old snow make for interesting patterns.

What a wonderful charity Bratcatt, does it take you long to knit each doll? What patience you must have. I remember when I was younger trying to knit a jumper, oh la! what a mess, talk about holey!!

Fantastic image, Brattcat!
While you have no real snow, the drought here is getting pretty serious, there were never so many fires in winter, we need rain badly!
