Yesterday brought another snowstorm to my corner of New England, making it a good day to spend in my studio while small white flakes drifted furiously down from the leaden sky.

The foot of new fallen snow, on top of the snow from the last storm, obscures some of our second floor windows.

I love being able to look out my windows and watch the snow while I work.  It’s very peaceful and makes me think about the other women who have lived in our house. I wonder whether they enjoyed sewing and doing needlework on similar snowy days….

Here is a glimpse at the first reproduction of the antique Izannah Walker doll I purchased in November.

Here is a glimpse at the first reproduction I’m making of the antique Izannah Walker doll I purchased from my friend, Edyth O’Neil, in November.  I just had to take a photo of her last night, before I shut down the studio for the day.  I’m not quite finished with her paint, but I love the way she looks so far.

  1. I am new to your site here. I think your dolls are just lovely! Look at that sweet face!

  2. Hi Paula, the snow outside your window and the shoveled path look just like Vermont. We are keeping in touch with family back home and they are snowed in as well and the kids are out of school on snow days. We’re down here in sunny and warm Florida. It’s been in the mid 80’s so far. The new doll is adorable, she reminds me of my Anna. I know I always enjoy sewing, embroidery, and needlepoint during the long winter month. I always enjoyed being snowed in and I remember years ago of not being able to open the back door. Even though I’m wintering in the warm weather I did take along my favorite needlework to keep my hands busy during the evenings. Keep toasty warm in your studio creating away. I’ll be thinking of you all back home in the north. Fondly, Mary Goddard.

    • Mary,

      She does remind me a bit of Anna too. She’s larger, but they both have lovely round heads, full cheeks and beautifully molded mouths.

      I’m so glad you are getting the chance to enjoy the warm weather and sunshine!

      Paula
