Lisel likes everything about summer: sunshine, butterflies, lemonade, garden flowers, picnics, ice cream, bicycles, beaches and camping. She loves gardening and would spend the summer knee deep in flowers if she could, snapping photos of every butterfly and ladybug therein. Her sunny personality makes all who meet her feel welcome.
Lisel wears a straw hat, a flowered dress with yellow gingham waistband and bow, gingham knickers and striped stockings. Her flowered shoes are tied on with checkered ribbons. She is made of a mix of new cotton fabrics, ribbon and vintage yarn. Her removable hat was a thrift shop find that I embellished with grosgrain ribbon.
And to my sister, who's birthday is today: "Happy Birthday Sandra! May your every wish come true in the year ahead."
