The Quimper Hitty human has a very good friend who appeared to be immune to Hittys. However, another friend of that friend acquired a new lathe, and was looking for projects. I gave my friend, and she gave her other friend an approximate profile of an uncarved Hitty blank, and a couple of weeks later a basket of goodies arrived at the Hitty cupboard.
We were most astonished and delighted at the sweet and beautiful little salad bowls, a gift from the wood-turner – Thank You!
…and Eugenia was overcome at the thought of potential friends arriving in the cupboard. As soon as the human has a few uninterrupted moments she will begin to search for the dollies in the wood!
The tree that this wood came from is a Horse Chestnut tree, a branch of which was overhanging the garden of our friend. She was happy to have the branch removed before it fell into her asparagus bed. Our friend’s friend is apparently happy to have found a new way to exercise the lathe – and we are happy to have found a person who was willing to venture turning a doll blank!
