Colonel Geraldine May

Geraldine Pratt May, was the first Air Force woman to earn the grade of Colonel and the first Director of Women in the Air Force. She died in 1997 at the age of 102. What a grand age! Thought she may like to try out the new Air Force digital tiger stripe uniform.
This is my beautiful friend Tania, who I miss so much. She is also my next doll victim.... watch this space!

  9. This is truly a tribute, Abi. I look forward to seeing the doll you make for your friend. What a powerful gift of love your talent is.

    Man, I'd have an attention span of a gnat trying to sew itty bitty pockets. I can watch itty bitty kitties all night and day though. LOL

    Nice to see you at the tree house. ;-
