May I introduce Ramona Grace. Now don't let the name fool you, because this little hellion is anything but grace. This tiny terror drives even the most patient nun to her wit's end. The chief complaint from the sisters is that Ramona will stand a short distance and just stare at them. It wouldn't be so bad, but a few sisters have woken up in the middle of the night to find Ramona just standing in the corner, watching them. It must be added that Ramona never sleeps. That is why she has those dark circles under her beady eyes. Ramona has a penchant for contrariness and foot-stamping. Lastly, it will take a mother's instinct to get over the natural gag reflex most have when looking at this little wretch.

Ramona Grace is made out of needle-sculpted cloth and paperclay. She is made from my own patterns. I hand-painted her with acrylics and sealed her with a coat of varnish. Ramona's dress is made from black cotton and is trimmed rows of tiny pintucks and ivory lace. Ramona is wearing bloomers trimmed with ivory lace and a petticoat.

The tiny wooden blocks spelling "bad" are included in the auction. The "r" block has the letter "b" on the back.

Doll stand is not included in this auction.

This doll will be signed by me, Melisa of Coppermouse Dolls.
