Summer Dresses and Strawberries

Summer Dress

A little knitted bodice and a scrap of Liberty Lawn makes a new summer dress for Min.

Out of reach!

She immediately put it on and went out to the back garden, where she found the first June strawberry. Unfortunately Min is very short and couldn’t reach it!

Assistance

She enlisted her friends to help…

  1. So colorful, so much community effort, so much effort to have a so pretty strawberry. We’ve been having a few everyday here ourselves. They are so good, aren’t they?

  2. the girls are all quite fetching in their new summery frocks. Hope they enjoy their very large berry. Loved seeing them all work together to harvest the berry.

    • They were so happy it is finally summer frock weather, and Min especially with her pretty new one! That was a large berry! They all enjoyed nibbling their piece of it, and the humans were happy to help finish it off!

  3. Every one of the 5 thoughts already recorded have echoed my feelings exactly! working together – and so simply joyfully. This little community provides such uplift to start one’s day…

  4. The girls look darling in their summer dresses. They are so loving and helpful to one another and that outdoor table, chairs and tea cups looked so festive…especially with that sought after, delectable, juicy strawberry.

  5. We love that they are cool and comfortable in these dresses – I was given the green top and yellow top one – they are crochet – which I never learned to do…Min is wearing my first successful knitted top with fabric skirt dress! We think there will be more!

    • Thanks! I take credit in this case for the frock only…well, and the photos, and the three bigger dolls. I have three dear carving teachers, and one of them (t c vollum) carved Min, and one of the others (Janet Cordell) made the basket from some kind of giant acorn cap.
