Bound for Maryland

No, not me.  But Virginia is.  The lady she's headed home to will maybe call her something new, but I always seem to need a name for dolls while I make them. 

This doll is just about the perfect size to work on...large enough that the detail work isn't hard, but small enough to display well and feel delicate in the hands.  I have enjoyed her immensely, and hope her new Lady enjoys sewing clothing for her.  Virgina wears wool boots with cotton laces, tailored to fit her little bare feet. 




I have a couple of business-related projects I have to work on over the next two weeks, and then I'll get busy clothing these six Izannahs (and a few of their friends.)  Hope your weekend is fabulous, dahlinks!

  1. I just love her and the the name Virginia is just perfect. Her feet and shoes are lovely. She has such a charming serene face. You have captured the essence of Izannah Walker dolls. I will keep sewing-I leave all buttons off and all closure areas will be finished after I try the clothes on.Thanks and and a big hug-can't wait!
