Hello, I am Shadi. Today my friend invited me to bake Christmas cookies together. My mother made an apron and some new clothes for me. Sewing is not Mom’s strong point and I am so small. She says it was very hard to do. Next, mom will knit a sweater for me. I look forward to it! こんにちは!シャディです。今日はお友達のおうちで一緒にクリスマスのクッキーを焼くの。それで、お母さんが今日のためにエプロンと新しいお洋服を作ってくれたんだ。でも、お母さんはお裁縫が苦手だし、シャディはちっちゃいから、とても大変だったって。次はセーターも編んでくれるって。楽しみだな。

She is one member of “Klasse kunterbunt”. They are a series of small dolls, all have simple clothes and bare feet. Many mixed races . I made them with the wish for all children to be treated equally and to be happy. この子は、「色とりどり組」のメンバーです。みんな小さな人形で、簡素な服で裸足です。いろんな人種の人形達。全ての子供達が平等で、幸せでありますように、という願いを込めて作りました。
