Have you ever had someone do
such a kind and selfless thing for you
it brings tears to your eyes?
This is Honor Goodfolk, the first doll I completed using my Izannah Walker Workshop pattern. I named her this because she was the expression of my intent to honor Izannah Walker. Honor was one of the dolls I made as a giveaway for class members. Over on Maida Dolls Group, someone made a kind comment about Honor's picture, which I had posted. And I commented back that Honor was the first doll I completed with my pattern. And then I went along my merry way.
Mary Bean was the winner of Honor, from the first class. And she saw my comment. Mary is a wonderful doll maker in her own right. She decided to send Honor home to me, saying that she felt it was right that the first Izannah doll I made with my pattern should come home to live with me. And so on Saturday I opened a box and look what was in it! My first doll made with my pattern. It was such a kind and generous thing for Mary to do. I will always keep Honor.
I think Honor needs a necklace,
and maybe a small companion to sit in her lap.
