Lelah Mae


Last year when I was in Columbus, Ohio I met a wonderful painter called Linda Apple. I spent a week staying with her....she is a warm, funny, smart and talented person with whom I felt an instant rapport. To thank her for her generous hospitality, I made this little doll while I was staying with her and dressed it in a scrap of fabric that had been in her mother's stash. Linda named the doll "Lelah Mae" after her late mother, which I found very touching. Linda recently emailed me some pictures of the doll, which I had forgotten to photograph. Here they are. I particularly like the picture of the doll seated aginst the yellow wall on the painted cupboard with one of Linda's paintings above it.
You'll be doing yourself a great favour if you visit Linda's website and have a bit of a peek at her art: http://www.applearts.com/

Susie, Lelah Mae is wonderful and I'm sure that Linda was thrilled with this so thoughtful gift. Thank you for the link to Linda's site - love her art and have bookmarked her site.

Wishing you a fabulous weekend!

She is a pretty girl. I have my Hannah you gave me sitting on top of the china cabinet. Granddaughter no 2 isn't able to keep her hands off her. She is trying to convince me that Hannah really needs to be in her bedroom not my dining room. I keep telling her "Mine"
