Hello...I bid you a fond farewell as I am ready to wing my way across the globe...not literally...as I will be be on a jetliner. This happy couple will be joining me and my other little fellows on our Pacific Rim Adventure...this is Huey and Ruby Doobee-Doo.
Co-Co Bunny foolishly believes that she has her own transportation...but she hasn't consulted her World Atlas and she has no clue just how long our journey will be. Rest assured that I have plenty of room for her and her little duck.
This is the special edition I have made for my Japanese friends...Girlie-Punkie. She is my rendition of Merrythought's PunkinHead Bear. I have made fifteen and they are all different. I have made pink, red, light blue and royal blue skirts and there are they all have their own duck appliques and bloomers. I do hope that they like her.
I have never given a class before...but as they say "there is always a first time for everything." We are going to stitch together little daisy girls. I will let you know the results upon my return. I am quite nervous about this. Maybe I should take a quick public speaking seminar from "Frank Lee Speaking," the famous orator in FunTown. Hmmm...I should have thought of that sooner. Cross your fingers for me.
Have silly "So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersein, Good-Bye...Adieu adieu...to you and you and you-ou" fun,
Jody, your jet-lagged already friend
P.S. I am sorry about my sign-off...now you will have those shiny little VonTrapp children singing in your head all day.

Hello...It is my pleasure to introduce you to Miss Bonnie Voyage...the proud owner of "The Bonnie Voyage...Gateway to Adventures" Travel Agency in FunTown. She likes to arrange "Flights of Fancy." Between her expertise in winged travel and her air of sophistication, she is quite successful.
This is "Bumble-Pink." She can hardly contain herself as she has been reading in her encyclopedia about the lovely Cherry Blossoms in Japan. In fact she is waiting at the front door...so she can be the first to board the airplane.
"Robin's Egg Bun" is also coming...she was late for the snapshot session, as she tends to spend a lot of time in front of the mirror. She insists that her ears are perked in just the right way.
We are going to have to get back to our travel preparations. We have many stitches to stitch.
Have "dreaming of little packets of airline peanuts" fun,
Jody, your friend who hates to admit that she is a chopstick bumbler also
P.S. There is discord here in FunTown...Some of the other monkeys have hurt feelings because they were not highlighted in the last blog...so stay tuned as I will try to remedy the situation. "Touchy-Touchy."

Have silly monkeying around fun today, Jody

She drew the Dolly Dingle series of paper dolls for a women's magazine, "Pictorial Review" from 1913 until 1933. I own the Dover Publications Reproduction books from 1978...1979...and 1985. These books are treasures to me.
This is Billy Bumps of Dingle Dell...I must admit that he is my favorite. Look at those chubby knees and inquisitive grin. He is probably not the fastest runner in his neighborhood...but I would bet that he is the kindest...
Here is Kitty-Cutie of Dingle Dell...devoted companion...and snappy dresser herself.
During these years World War 1 was happening, so those in Dingle Dell were very patriotic...
Holidays are much anticipated and happily celebrated...Boo..
The Dingle's have many friends and neighbors...It appears that the Quack-Quacks enjoy those tasty treats at the Dingle's...
Even with their busy schedules...there is always time to volunteer for public service...
Good deeds and American pride...always a good thing in Dingle Dell...
Any of you who know me personally or are familiar with my work will see the profound influence these little silly little characters have had on me. Dingle Dell and FunTown are neighboring villages...it seems the sun shines a little brighter here and there.
Thank you for visiting with us today. I will share some more of my inspirations with you in the future.
Thank you Grace Drayton...Hip-Hip Hooray for you!

I will keep you posted as to our progress. I have to scurry back to my sewing room right now, as there is lots of work to do. As they say "A stitch in time...will help me meet my deadline."
Have "making silly summer memories" fun, Jody-San
