 For the new year...a new doll in progress, made at the request of my daughter! daughter who does not like dolls.
She doesn't want to keep it, I think she just wanted to see me make it. 
So this doll will be in the shop as soon as I decide how to dress her.
 She is by far the largest doll I've ever made - about 24" tall. 
She is made from 100% homespun cotton, and entirely stitched by hand (yes, every stitch!) 
Her features are embroidered with thread from my vintage thread collection, and her hair is of mohair yarn. Q picked out the hair color, thread color and dimensions.
 I am quite fond of her, and can't wait to find the time to make her clothes!
