The third member of the new Patchwork Set, Gretchen is more of a stay under the covers girl. I wish I could do the same. It’s cold, cloudy and dreary today. I need the sun, my on switch.

    So cute! I love the way you’ve made her hair. It’s a cold and cloudy day here, too. I wish I could just curl up under the covers and read a book all day.

    This totally gave me pause, as my name is Gretchen. For the briefest moment I thought you were writing about me. And perhaps you were. My hair is not blonde, but I do like to stay under the covers. 😉

    What a sweet doll! I’m partial to staying curled up under the covers with a good book too! I love the quilt- looks very Holly Hobby to me!
    When my hair was long as a girl, I wore it in braids all the time- hey, it was the 70s, and Little House was my favorite show ever! My braids were more brown than blonde, though.

    I saw Gretchen’s photo and kept thinking something about it looked really familiar. It took me a couple of days to realize that oh my gosh we have a book just like the one she’s holding, by John Anglund! My 3 year old just had it out this morning. Ours is called ‘Love is a Special Way of Feeling’ and the cover is the same dusty reddish color and has a little boy handing a flower to a little girl. We stole it from my in-laws’ house years ago and I have never seen another like it. Now that I know they’re out there I MUST start my search for more. It is the sweetest little book ever.
