Most of you know that a group of us attending the Sasha Celebration Weekend were able to assemble a charity doll using a Sasha head mold that Janet Myhill-Dabbs covered with fabric and beautifully painted. The project was approved by the Morgenthaler family and each of the doll makers had a kit waiting for them at Eastwood Hall. A portion of the cost of the doll went to children’s charities and so they are referred to as charity dolls instead of course dolls. This fantastic wooden tag was kindly gifted to all the doll makers by Florence D. Gadol.
Please meet my charity doll Megan. Her powder blue corduroy Ruthsdolls dress was generously gifted to me by Mary Righos. I added the Ruthsdolls pinafore that came with another dress and gave her hand knitted socks and black leather shoes. I am over the moon for this lovely girl. She is with me most of each day as I carry her from room to room.
Megan likes sitting on the front porch in the rocking chair.
I have loved cloth dolls since childhood and this little one has really endeared herself to me.
Each doll maker also received a hand made onesie for their doll as a lovely gift from Jenny O’Donnell.
Look! Another generous gift for each charity doll is a lovely, colorful hand knitted scarf made by Gillian Buchanan.
Having a charity doll is alone a gift. These wonderful additional gifts just make these dolls all the more special. Many thanks to everyone for their kind generosity.

Megan received another gift from Auntie Janet before we left the UK. A beautiful handmade floral head ring. It is perfect for Megan.!
Look! Who is this little one? Megan has adopted this precious Gotz baby Alek who is now called Lexie. Megan is her closest sister and best friend.

Hello there lovely Lexie. We are happy to have you here at Sasha Shangri-La.
A very happy little girl.
