Izannah Walker Style Doll is Finished!

Today I have finished making my latest Izannah Walker doll.  Her outfit consists of antique pantaloons, skirt and blouse with lots of embroidery. I think she looks more grown up in this outfit.

Making Progress!

I finally got around to painting my Izannah Walker style doll today, stitched on her arms and legs and covered her body with a knit fabric.  She has two bonnets and I am working on a different outfit. I can't decide which ones work best, I will make a final decision when they are finished.

A Tour of Vermont's Fall Foliage

As promised, here are some pictures taken around Vermont this year. Today it was 74 degrees and sunny, beautiful day for touring. It will be rainy and very cold over the next week so I am glad I got the chance to get out one last time. Enjoy!

A New Project Started~Izannah Walker Doll

Yesterday I started an Izannah Walker doll, lots of work yet to do before the painting stage but you can get an idea with my pencil marks on her face. I always seem to put the eyebrows too high so I will have to remember to lower them later. Have a great day my friends.

"Tucker" has joined our family!

I am very pleased to introduce a new member of our family we named "Tucker".  He is a shelter dog I saw on-line at the Franklin County Animal Shelter which is about 10 miles from where we live.  I filled out an application and received a call the other day that he was ours if we wanted him. Tucker is a two year old male poodle ( some papers state he is a toy and others say he is a miniature) who is house trained, can sit and lay down on command and LOVES cuddles. He came into the shelter as a stray, very matted and with fleas, poor guy and someone forgot to dock his tail when he was a puppy. His long tail bends forward over his back and is constantly wagging. I am tempted to put a bell on it, LOL.  We set up a crate for him last night but he had other designs for sleeping arrangements in his new home. He slept all night curled up in our bed as close as possible and never stirred. We are on a home visit status for a week but have the option of adopting him anytime...I am thinking this little guy has a new permanent home and he couldn't be happier. More pictures soon.
