The dolly lives! We got her up on Tuesday. To my surprise she stretched to be just the size I wanted her to be. There is only about a foot and a half between her head and the ceiling beam. Also the pull of gravity smoothed out the stuffing in the legs and body just like I had hoped.

Here is Sus adjusting the lights on her. Today Nanette comes to install the rest of the show and I am nervously awaiting that next action.
Oh some statistics. Dolly is crocheted using left over wool yarn from carpet making by Hansine. I only had this much and used up all I had. She is stuffed with brown kraft paper. Her feet are 24 inches long and I think her total height is about 12 - 13 feet.
