Saige

SaigeHi,

My name is Saige, an American Girl (doll) from Albuquerque.  While I love Albuquerque and New Mexico, I would not be opposed to moving to another area in the Rocky Mountain Region or even beyond.

Deborah, the milliner, is measuring my head for the straw boater hat she is going to make me.  Look at the shelf and all the men’s hats for La Traviata!

I love horses, art (mainly painting) but I am learning that embroidery is art and the ladies of the Miles of Memories Adoption Agency are showing me what beautiful things can be accomplished with needle and thread.  I may have to try taking a stitch or two!

Ready to party!

I have enjoyed meeting so many of you at the seminar in Grand Junction and again at the meeting in Billings and look forward to seeing many of you in palmer Lake and then in Albuquerque..  I’m so glad the weather cooperated and was nice while we were in Billings – I saw a postcard of Beartooth Pass with snow much higher than a car but then that must have been springtime after a winter of snows!.

Sometimes it rains in New Mexico – showing off my bookmark!

I have been attending the meetings of Pajarito, Sandia Mountains and Turquoise Trails chapters and have learned so much.  Pulled thread (I have a bookmark for my journal as well as my big books), Hardanger, and tassels!

Did you know that a stitch painted canvas is worth the price

asked for it?  I’ll also pay more attention to color relationships when I paint.  The ladies at Pajarito Chapter even went back to “summer camp” to work on favors for seminar – what laughter as they sat in a circle around an imagined campfire on a cold winter night!

The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is a big event in my books and Debbie and Dave were super chaperones that week.  I flew with Dave one day, met a zebra (launch director), and rode on one of the mounted patrol’s horses.  What a week!

The ladies are making me a beautiful wardrobe – clothes for all occasions – including when I am in a picnic scene in an opera (it’s a non- singing role)!  I have my own journal, teddy bear and quilts.  They have added to my wardrobe – a crochet dress and hats, denim clothes, a raincoat that has heads turning!   I can help out in the kitchen in my embroidered chef’s hat, mitt and apron!

Here I am in the costume of the 1910s!

Of course, I wore my jammies and jacket to the Balloon Fiesta.  I helped pick out fabrics that had been used at the Santa Fe Opera, I can hardly wait for fittings!

I have a large chest to hold some of my belongings and who knows how many more clothes I will have before I am adopted on August 2, 2014 at the Miles of Memories seminar (RMR Seminar 2014).
