R.........aggedy Ann and Andy

The fabulous Vicki Diane of vickidianedesigns on Etsy has "exposed" me in one of her remarkable treasury series. She did this one in tribute to JulieChristie and Java723 who are celebrating birthdays next week. They're two of my Etsy favs and I'm so delighted to be included in this treasury. These 21" crocheted Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls were just finished in time for this picture (they're the cute ones). They're made entirely of yarn and fiberfill from their outfits right down to the "I Love You" on their chests and their long curls. They do take a while to make; I figure about 30-35 hours on each one, but I loved making them as much as I loved my Raggedy Ann when I was a little girl, many moons ago! The rocker that they're sitting in was made for my mother more than 90 years ago and is a great treasure in our home. Please check out the treasures in their shops!

Timeless...both the chair and Raggedy Ann & Andy. I have my toddler rocking chair, so its about *&^ years old now, and my sister made Raggedy Ann & Andy for my son when he was a baby. He'll be 30 this summer! I keep them in a very special place.

Great photo and congratulations for the feature. I clicked on the link but could not access. I guess I maybe a little late? Best wishes to you Patti...
