Did I kill Ann?! Part 1

I've been working on a few projects for the last six or seven months. Slow being the word of the day when it came to crafting while under chemotherapy.
One of the highlights of my project working is this Ann.


She is a musical doll with a crank placed in her back. I'm not sure what the music box plays but it is a familiar tune from my childhood.


She was in great condition, just a tear in the lower shin which is close enough to make a stitched bend for a knee. Problem one solved.
Her face, specifically her eyes, were dirty. A bath would take care of that.
All of the elastic had stretched out, simple enough to replace. Problem two solved.
I found, via the Internet, that her dress is original but she was missing the apron. Not a issue, how many times had I made her apron! Problem three solved.

Oh Dawn! I am brimming over with suspense! What a way to leave your loyal readers....and with Ann's head dunked into the tub! I hope she can be fixed...whatever it is...and I know you have a cure for it...you ARE the Raggedy doctor after all!
Wow...seeing you back crafting again makes me want to do back flips...if I didn't think it would take out my back, my knees, my ankles and my neck that is.:(
