The love of Raggedy Ann and Andy, never went away. My son's all were given an Andy when small. Later when I finally got a sewing machine of my own, I made a Raggedys for my daughter (she is my youngest and only girl) and many of my grandchildren.
One year I made small ones for my grandmother and my parents. I have them all now, their original owners have passed away. They are cherished as memories of the love I felt for them.
I am also a collector of things raggedy......although I never made one for myself, my friend Evelyn made me one, I've bought them at thriftshops, yard sales and flea markets. Such a simple thing, to love so much. But you see, Raggedy Ann loves you back.
