As recorded in a previous post, the homeless shelter where I work has an annual fundraiser called “Every Doll Needs a Home.”  Dollmakers from all over the world create and donate dolls to be auctioned off at our annual doll art benefit.  All proceeds go to help the home.

A friend of mine is a superb dollmaker and creates something for us every year.  This year, she has created two dolls for the auction.  One of them is a mother troll with her baby. To make an otherwise long story short…she actually created two of the mother/baby trolls, donated one to the auction and gave the other one to me as a GIFT!  I even got to choose between the two.  WOW!

She created these using a pattern from doll artist Ute Vasina. As usual, Kippy added her own twist. :)

Both mother and baby have tails and mom also has silk underwear.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, to Kippy Brezner of Albany, NY!

Sorry that the pics don’t do her justice.  If the weather would improve, I’d take pics outdoors.
