street urchin / n. 1. a mischievous child, esp. young and raggedly dressed.
                                             2. a child who spends most of her time in the streets, esp. in slum areas.

Sinead has a home but it's a very busy home with lots of coming and going and if she isn't careful lots of jobs to do, to help mum.
 She would rather be out in the street playing with her friends,
 feeling the wind in her hair and dreaming of new things to do.

Her mother's friend is a photographer and mum wants some nice pictures of Sinead to show the family and maybe send to Granny.
 Sinead agreed, under sufferance, to go to the photographer's house and have some pictures taken and mum was going to drop by later and they would all have afternoon tea together.

It was so boring, having to sit still when she knew her friends were probably down at the duck pond 
or at the vacant lot behind the library building a cubby. 
She stayed still for as long as she could and then  just flopped.

The photographer lady said that was OK, it was nearly time for afternoon tea anyway 
and Sinead's mum would soon be here. 

Straight after tea Sinead ran off to be with her friends again, 
she was just in time for a game of British Bulldog

Sinead is a 17" doll made with my new pattern.
She will be available in my Etsy shop tomorrow.
