This doll is the story behind the title of this blog. I started it before my daughter’s first birthday and have dreamt of finally finishing it. Soon! Now, a little more than two years later, it’s FINALLY FINISHED!

My daughter, Juni, is very particular about what she gets attached to, and so far, she has not been too interested in this doll. But that’s okay! I was preparing myself for that while I made it, and I believe that even if she never attaches to it, it will be a wonderful family heirloom that her children can fight over.

(I do think that this doll is more of a friend doll and right now, Juni is really into having a baby doll, to mimic the way I take care of her baby sister. I think friend dolls come later in development.)
