A little girl appeared in the mailbox today – she’s come all the way from Kansas where there is an excessive heat warning of up to 105 degrees F expected this week! Here in Victoria we are waiting for summer to come back…poor Charlotte was not used to this chilly climate.
Prissy was quite concerned that Charlotte seemed frozen stiff, so she heaved her into a cradle,
…ran for a hot water bottle…
and borrowed a square from the current quilt scrap project.
And in case her stiffness was due to shyness, Prissy decided to keep her company for a while, and read her a story.
This little 2 1/2 inch Frozen Charlotte is a gift from a Hitty friend. She is a replica doll similar to one which was found by archaeologists wrapped in a wool sock on the wreck of the Arabia. This steam-powered paddlewheel boat went down in 1856, after hitting or being hit by a snag on the Missouri River.
