An Early Wooden Doll at Lucy's Doll House

I am reposting this for a group of people who are studying Queen Anne dolls.

Even though I originally visited Lucy's Doll House in 2007 because they had an Izannah Walker doll, I try to get there every year to see what they treasures they have in store.  And I am never disappointed.  Here is a little wooden Queen Anne style doll.  She was hand sized.  I wish I had gotten a whole body shot!  She has what appears to be human hair.  This doll is SOLD and not available any more, but I was glad to be able to cross paths with her.  

For my doll making friends, I usually try to take pictures from odd angles.  

The following video is quite imperfect.  but it gives a sense of the size of the doll as well as the legs.  Enjoy!

A Quilt Celebrates Izannah Walker

In the MAIDA Dolls Group, people have been sharing their wonderful creations.  We had a theme to honor Izannah with doll making but also in other ways. Martha Rutledge, Elaine McNally's mom, made this charming doll quilt using Dixie Redmond's Izannah patent fabric along with a variety of other reproduction fabrics. For the center block, Martha embroidered an Izannah-like doll body.  Beautiful!
