When my friend Cindy wrote to me that she wished I could patch her up like I did my old pink chair, I told her I wished the same and that I’d know which fabric to use.
Then she asked me for a picture of the fabric.
But I couldn’t take a picture of the fabric, because it was something I’d imagined. I knew the fabric would be colorful and have animals on it surrounded by flowers.
The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to find that fabric even if I had to piece it together.
That’s when I thought that since I couldn’t patch up my friend like I did my pink chair, I could make her something patched together with the fabrics I’d imagined.
First I thought I’d make her a pillow, but I couldn’t picture it. So I sat at my worktable, closed my eyes and waited for something to come. That’s when I saw the goddess doll.
I made her up as I went along, listening to Bellydancing music I stuffed her with roving from my sheep Zelda and Griselle and gave her lace hair.
Tomorrow I’ll send her to Cindy.

This is phenomenal Maria! So different and beautiful! What a wonderful gift for your friend.
What a lovely surprise Maria! My mind is blown by this! I have studied every detail of her.I love you for your kind heart. You gave your thoughts and time to me. I am honored. She has a great energy emanating from your sheeps poodley coats. She IS patched together and so will I be. 🙂 She will be traveling with me through this whole affair. Everywhere I go. Hard to type through these tears!
Ah Cindy, now I’m crying too. You will be good patched-together companions. I knew you would get the sheep energy.
Wow. Just. Wow.
This is just the best. I suspect you will be getting orders.
Oh my goodness, Maria!
She is so adorable!
I want one, too!
Thanks Catherine. I wasn’t planning on making more of these, but you never know…
You are stellar, Maria ! What a darling creation and what a gift to your friend !
We recently moved to a bigger house and I finally have a craft room that my grandson and I practically live in when he stays for days. I think of it as my little studio and can’t help smiling each time I walk in. I’m hoping to channel a little “Maria inspiration” with each project.
Oh a room of your own Laura. It sounds like a magical place and I love that your grandson likes to be there too. all that creativity happening. What a good Grandmother you are to teach him that.
Oh Maria! I love the Goddess. I hope you continue to make more. I would love to buy one some day!
oh please make more! so so so wonderful!
They would have to be different Dorit, because I made this one especially for Cindy. But I may think about making a different kind of Goddess doll. Thanks for your encouragement.
