Aunty Sam

I want to draw your attention to the talent and creativity of my sister-in-law, Samantha Kelly. Rose was lucky enough to be presented with this sweet little doll for Christmas, designed and made by Sam herself and known to us as “Aunty Sam”. Being light and squashable, Aunty Sam was lucky enough to join us on the flight from Sydney to London, and consequently she was one of the few toys that sustained us until our boxes arrived. Sadly her beautifully hand-stitched face and patchwork dress are inevitably losing their pristine quality. Sam (the girl not the doll) actually has her own crafty blog, All Things Quilty, where you can read about her adventures as a patchwork quilter and all-round crafter.

Though we miss you Sam, you are not being forgotten. Your little effigy is very well loved.

    Hi my beautiful girls,
    Rose is wearing the cardigan made by Rose’s great great grandmother for Alison and Sarah.It still looks wonderful and as with all handmade articles improves with use and reuse.Perhaps “Aunty Sam” can also become an heirloom worn and treasured.Only a stylish girl would be seen in a Red Trolley!
