Jinksy has a new dress too. I wanted a super red dress, but nothing I had available was red enough. I already had a pretty red dress with black dots, but it was to plain, so off to the store to see what could be had. I managed to find the really red fabric in a fat quarter to make the bonnet and embellish the dress some. I love the bonnet fabric, but couldn't get any yardage, only 5 fat quarters, so I made do. This doll will also get some socks and shoes. I included a couple of pictures of us working, while we were sewing for Jinksy. You will have to excuse our ragged

y clothes and un combed hair, as this was spur of the moment, and I didn't have time to get beautiful for the camera. HaHa.   I had to take a break from doll making to go to the doctor. She congratulated me on loosing 10 lbs. I have a long way to go, but we are all working on our figures and our health issues as well. I have a ton of work to do, and it seems no time to do it all, but like every one else, I just go a step at at a time now and do as much as I can. Another picture I put up this time is another, (yes, another re- do ) on the paint on my last Izannah doll. This is the last one though. I do love this doll and will not be making another like this, as I have made new molds for the future, and they will have up grades on several fronts. New heads, new body changes, new feet design, and some minor changes with the fingers. Among the other projects I have going is my new rag doll body and changes in the way they look. I am trying out different fabrics ( mostly old flour sack ) to make the old looking dolls. They say we are in for a big snow storm the end of the week, and if that is true, more time for dolls, more me time. Well tonight on our strick diet we have atleast two cups of steamed cabbage to look forward to, as well as a little flat bread pizza that will fit into the palm of my hand. Gone are the days of ( Oh lets go get some fried chicken and potatoes ), and forget the bread. It  is a good thing they give us lots of oatmeal in every thing else, I do like it dry. Hope all is well with everyone and look forward to seeing others creations and activities.


  1. I adore Miss Jinksy. Her outfit is one to be proud of. I love her pearly whites too! You and your mother have such a nice place to work & I like how your machines are side by side. It's wonderful that you share in the love of dolly making. Have fun working when the snow comes. Congrats on your weight loss! Keep up the good work.

  2. Miss Jinksy is so pretty in her new red outfit. I love her, too! And, I love the pictures of you and your mother busy at work. What a team! It has been almost a year since I went on a gluten-free diet. I keep remembering what my high school science teacher would ask, "Do you eat to live or live to eat?"

  3. I love this! Both sweet dollies, your workspace and you two working in it...and I love the pile of doll torso/heads in the chair beside you. So much potential there. Hugs!
