Honor Goodfolk Comes Home

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.

Thank you, Mary!!!
