A New Dress!

I am happier this evening. Mama just finished my new dress. Now, everyone but Leila has new clothes to wear. Mama did a lot of sewing since I last wrote. She made pants and a jacket for Mstya, finished a dress for Nefertari, and just needs to trim Amara's new coat. My dress is made out of the same flannel as Mstya's clothes and it is so soft and warm. Leila said warriors have to be tough, but I think Mama is making her warm clothes anyway.

I like clothes

I am upset. Mama has been sewing for days and none of it is for me. First, she made pants and a coat for a friend's very large doll. Then she made a coat and altered a shirt for Nasrin, who hasn't arrived yet. Now she is sewing Amara a new pirate coat. She has a new pattern that she is making for Mstya and says that after he gets a new shirt and pants she will make me something. That will be so long. I need more clothes! It is cold and I only have 1 sweater dress. I have been watching Mama with big eyes all day long, but I don't think it is working.

It's a doll's life

I got something sticky in my hair while playing, so Mama had to shampoo it. At first, I sulked and wouldn't get out of bed so she could take care of it, but I got tired of sitting in my bedroom by myself. Especially when other dolls were traveling with her instead of me. Finally on Thanksgiving, I got up and asked her to shampoo my hair. It takes a long time for my hair to dry.
I got cold, so Mama found me a little knit cap to wear while I waited. My new dress came in the mail yesterday.

It is all toasty and warm, but it feels strange not to be wearing my petticoat. I am glad that my stockings are thick and warm. Mama bought some nice green fleece to make us all coats with. But, first she made a coat and a pair of warm pants for a friend of ours who lives in Chicago. Actually, he is Nefertari's friend, his bicep is almost as big as me and his inseam is longer than Amara is tall. Nefertari says he is a gentle soul and would be very careful of me. Oh, I forgot, you haven't met Nefertari yet.

This is Nefertari, isn't she beautiful. She is as nice as she is beautiful. Nefertari will play board games with me, even though my whole game board is the size of her two hands. We have tea parties together also, although I always bring my own tea cup. (I can sit on her cup.)

This is my best friend, Amara. You have met her in our photostories, but I don't think you have seen her new hairstyle. Amara loves it and has been doing a lot of hair tossing. She feels that it is just the right hair for a Roma turned pirate. I hope Mama gets our ship put together soon: we have lots of adventures to go on.

This is Mstya, Amara's big brother. He tracked her all the way here to look out for her. At first, Amara said she didn't know him, but later she admitted that she was glad her brother had come to find her.

This is my big sister, Leila. She has been busy learning to be a warrior. Leila says it is dangerous on the high seas , so she will help protect us. Her twin sister, Miela, is going off to live with our friend Miss Teddie. They became great friends when Miss Teddie visited this summer. She didn't want to be included in what has become our dolly family portrait.

While I was writing, Mama finished styling my hair and it is finally ready.I really missed my hair.

My name is Shriara and I am a companion doll. I have so many things to say that it is hard to get them down in an orderly manner.

Let me start with some basic facts. I always call my owner, Valerie, Mama. She only has one human child and he is a boy, a very large boy. When you are less than 6 inches tall ,a boy over 6 feet tall is very large indeed.

Mama likes to make doll clothes. I like to wear clothes, so we get along very well indeed.

My best friend is Amara. Amara is a pirate. She is about to get her very own ship. Even without a ship, we have had fun together. Amara has a horse named Wildfire. Mama downloaded the song so that I can hear it. It is a sad song, but Wildfire is a very nice horse. Amara has taken me riding and I enjoyed it very much.

I travel most places with Mama riding in my sleeping bag in her purse. I always keep some books and my Etch a Sketch in there so that I will have things to do. I like sitting on my little carpet on the dash of the car. When I look out the window, I feel like I am on a flying carpet.

We have to go run errands now, so I will talk to you later.

Bye for now,
