Champion of Thanksgiving Day
My latest doll turned out to have much more fortitude than when I began. As I finished her face, she was no wisp of a girl, but a strong middle-aged woman, painted like a folk art portrait. She made me think of Sara Hale, a woman whose accomplishments mostly happened after she was 40 - who was the champion of Thanksgiving Day. Click the link above to learn more about Sara.

She is now on Ebay.
