In honor of Pi Day, I made a pie dolly today. She is based on the old nursery rhyme:
Sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye
4 and 20 blackbirds, baked in a pie
When the pie was opened, the birds began to sing
Wasn’t that a dainty dish to set before the King?
About a dozen years ago, I wrote a song called Song of Sixpence while I was teaching an art camp up at Rabun Gap Nacoochee School. I saw a boy with a june bug on a string, but from far away, I thought it was a bumblebee. It looked funny, and I imagined a boy with a pet bumblebee taking a walk. This was in the summer, and there were loads of blackberries on campus, which I picked and ate to my heart’s content. It was the first year after Randy and I were married, and is sort of a nursery-rhymish love song that doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense. But it’s fun. You can see our little homemade music video of it here:

Rosie has a lovely drawing this week. I think it will be especially fun to color all the details in her outfit.
Paloma has made a partial drawing. Finish it for her! What does she look like? Where is she standing? What is all around her? I think you will enjoy this drawing.
As always, sending love from The Paper Doll Club!
