    Miss Kitty Fish Sticks: once she comes home I will tie her scroll shut. Looks like the pockets are small, 4 1/2 inches wide and 4 inches tall. If they are too difficult to attach on 3 sides, please attach on 2 parallel sides. Pockets should be sewn onto the blue swirly side of the panel rather than the quilted side.

    Her face is painted and she is horizontal rather than vertical. She looks like she is flying. She is traveling with bits, feel free to use, hoard for other projects, or ignore the bits.

    I would very much appreciate an idea of the dimensions of a box I should look for to mail my doll in, she is under 9". I bought a xs box at post office that ships by weight which is the least cost, but it's still too big, any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    I think the Medium size Flat Rate box is 11”x8 1/2”x 5 1/2” deep. I think mine would work ok with that. I’m sure I would still need to use packing materials to take up some space, but probably not a lot.

    My doll is a little over 9” tall, and I will also be sending the panel squares in a baggie and also some trims to use as picture frames in a second baggie.

    I've got an Amazon A3 box. As small as I think it is, it's still big. Enter bubble wrap and newspaper.

    Thank you CiCiCreates and notinkansas, I really appreciate it! Then the xs box should work, and I also have an A3 box from amazon, you're right notinkansas there's quite a bit of room left ...now I have an idea of which to use, thank you both so much.

    Okay...i think my doll is done. Lets see if i can explain what i have in mind. Ive named her Grandma Gladys, after my grandma, and the theme is Homespun Wisdom. I was inspired by memories of being a kid in the summer. Trips to visit the grandparents, snapping beans and eating fresh corn from the garden, long hot days, rolling in the cool grass, fields full of flowers, outdoor concerts, trips to the pool, and more. Simple pleasures, simple times, simple folk art style.

    The scroll will become her "apron". I am sending 4 X 5 inch squares of muslin for each of you to decorate. I will finish and connect them when they return to me. You may use paint, pen, fabric, stitching, etc. to create a panel in a simple folk art/sampler style. You will also include a bit of homespun wisdom that has meaning or memories for you.
    I am including a finished panel to give you an idea of what I have in mind. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I hope I explained it well enough.

    Agreed!!! Everyone’s will be so enjoyable and yet so different from each other. Amy, what a great idea. Sounds like you had a wonderful childhood with all those memories.

    That darned Millicent almost didn't accept one of my paintings! She can be somewhat intimidating, but I think she knew what a struggle I was having, and how hard I was trying, so she relented. That said, my panel is almost ready to show (along with Millicent).

    Princess Prim

    Introducing Princess Prim with her "diamonds". Please don't worry if some of her "diamonds" fall off, they shouldn't, but if they do I'll glue them back on when she returns or I have others to replace them with.
    The ones on her head are sewn on so they should be okay.

    Princess Prim is very sweet. Can’t wait to introduce her to the beauty outside her realm.
