Re: You Can Make Your Own Sock Dolls
- The sock dolls that you see at
http://www.amonco.org/sockdoll1.pdf and http://www.amonco.org/sockdoll.pdf were
made by my mother. She has suffered from severe colitis and osteoporosis since 1999
and spends most of her time in bed.
She has been in and out of hospice since 2005. For the last four months, to the surprise
of her physicians, she has been feeling somewhat better. She is still pretty much
bedridden, so when she is up and sitting at the table, I encouraged her to start making
sock dolls once again.
Last January, she suffered another stroke which left her with temporary aphasia. It's
remarkable that now, fourteen months later, she has recovered about 90% of her speech
and can sit and make these dolls.
I hope that many on this list enjoy the free information about the sock dolls.
Blessings to all,
