Busy, busy days… While I spent the weekend making dolls to unveil next Saturday night, September 26th at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time, the dolls cleaned their doll house from top to bottom. Goodness! Parties are so much work!!!
All the little Izzys were exhausted, so today they took the day off to rest, while I continued to paint and sew. I hope they will be ready to get back to work tomorrow! We still have so many party preparations to make before we can celebrate Izannah Walker’s 203rd birthday on Friday, September 25th, 2020 beginning at 8:00 a.m. Eastern time. We hope you will be able to come to the party ❤
This has been a busy week here in my studios, with a flurry of shipping activity as several new dolls have packed up and left on their journeys to their new homes ❤
Today Isane’s youngest sister is leaving. Her pressed cloth head was made using the mold of my antique Isane. Safe travels!
UPDATE!– My “New Dolls Video” won’t load on wordpress at all, so I am loading it on YouTube… However YouTube is saying that the video is only 8% loaded and that it is still going to be over an hour until it is uploaded!!!! SO – New Dolls will be posted at 2:00 Eastern Time.
I had this great? idea to do the new dolls for sale as a video…. the problem with that is that I’m having an issue with word press loading the videos… so stay tuned – I’ll get post 3 up as soon as I can fix the issue! So Sorry!!!!!
This post is especially for Jane. Filled with many photographs to help her make the final wardrobe selections for her doll ❤

I’m sorry I haven’t written for a few days. It’s been such a busy weekend! Our dearest friend Emmaline has come to visit and we are having such fun.”
“Every day we all walk out to check on the progress of our new house…”
“Good night dearest diary. Love, Isabeau”
All of the girl’s were thrilled to receive a letter from Hannah Grace! . She said that keeping busy helps when she is lonely for her friends and family in CT, so she has begun working on a few projects.
Hannah is trimming photos of her loved ones to fit in her locket. She is planning to go shopping for ribbon this weekend so she can wear the locket and keep the pictures close to her heart. Hannah wants to share her quilt top with Mr. Ginger and plans to finish quilting it later this winter.She also has a small embroidery project she wants to work on and is in the process of choosing colors.
What a busy young lady!!! Now all of the doll’s are clamoring about starting winter projects of their own…
Meet Hannah Grace, the first doll made from a mold that I created directly from Hannah, my most recently acquired antique Izannah Walker doll. Hannah Grace’s new mom, Janet, picked out all of her clothing fabrics and styles ❤
Hannah’s Warm Winter Wool Challis Dress
I made this dress out of a worn 19th century antique paisley shawl. The dress has many hand sewn details, including a cartridge pleated skirt and herringbone stitched seam finishes.
Hannah’s Summer Party Frock
For warm weather and fancy occasions Hannah Grace has a floral paisley dress made from antique gauze weight cotton. The dress has split sleeves with two different antique trims ❤
This summer dress is a bit shorter so that the eyelet tabs on her petticoat show 🙂
Still Haven’t Seen Enough?
