Just a quick reminder that the Boo auction is live and off to a fantastic start... she is up to $200 already! Please spread the word so we can raise some money for the wonderful non-profit childrens hospital, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
In case you missed the earler post, Ashley of Li'l Blue Boo has been dealing with a very aggressive form of cancer. You can read more about her ordeal on her blog http://www.lilblueboo.com I am so happy to say that as of now, it looks like the chemo is working so hopefully Ashley will be on her way to a complete recovery very soon.
This is how Boo started: Stephanie Corfee http://www.stephaniecorfee.com designed a "Team Ashley" logo at the request of a dear friend so people could show their support for Ashley during this tough time. When I saw the logo, I got an idea. I had some of the art yarn left from the 1st doll I made for Ashley's daughter, Boo http://www.lilblueboo.com/2010/10/lil-sally-doll-dress-pattern-giveaway.html and I thought it would be fun to make a doll similar to that one to wear a shirt with the Team Ashley logo. The Melamoose Co. http://www.themelamooseco.etsy.com very generously made the t-shirt and the coolest ruffle pants from some incredible Japanese linen blend fabric. And to top it all off, Boo is wearing a hair clip made by Ashley's sister, Perry. Perry sent me a couple clips a little while back, and this seemed like the perfect doll to wear one.
