Can you believe that this sad little lady was found on the side of the road awaiting the garbage truck? I’ve got to say, it just breaks my heart that someone would feel that this is an appropriate thing to do. When she eventually came into my care, she was soaking wet from being out in the elements.
The back was made up of straw, underneath the flutes, which are seen on the floor here. Each flute was individually stitched before being filled with the original cotton felt. This process took many hours, after the old stuffing was dried out completely.
