The Doll That Grandmother Dressed

Posted on

Astrid, dressed as a grandmother, lives in a small wooden house near the Hardanger Fjord in Norway. Throughout the long winter Grandma dressed up dolls to sell to tourists next summer. She enjoyed sewing with Astrid because she thought the doll looked like her grandson Borghild, who lives with her.

Grandma cut Astrid’s black woolen skirt with red braid and tied her red woolen stockings. She sewed colored beads on Astrid’s bodice and hat. The beads sparkle like Christmas tree ornaments.
