Just an FYI: As I was prepping this for its new home (hand washing and ironing), I noticed for the first time that for sure this was made from flour sacks because on two sides as you approach the hand-crocheted edging, you can still see the stitch lines and selvage edge from when it once held flour.

All proceeds (minus shipping and packing) benefit, a non-profit that provides new books to children from low-income families throughout the U.S. and Canada.

“There is something unique about being a member of a family that really needs you in order to function well. One of the deepest longings a person can have is to feel needed and essential.” -Mister Rogers

    MaryJane and Brian-
    Just had to say how “excited” I am that I was the “winner” of Sun Bonnet Sue! I received her in the mail the other day and she is even more beautiful in person! She reminds me of the old Holly Hobby dolls, and resembles a Holly Hobby Christmas ornament that I still hang on my tree every year since I was just 5 years old. I adore this treasure and cant thank you enough! So much fun to see what other goodies you will post…its a whole new form of “thrifting”, and benefits such a wonderful cause. What a great idea!
