"Rare" Dixie Redmond Mini Izannah Doll in Progress

Here's what I'm working on now - a mini Izzy.  She needs thumbs, and to have her limbs painted and then set into the body covering.  Slowly, slowly, ten minutes at a time sometimes, she is coming together.  The description of my dolls as "rare" came from another doll-maker who was teasing me about my progress. I'm happy to say this girl is coming along.    

I was talking about studios with another artist on the phone, who is thinking about moving to Maine. She said, "I imagined you had this huge studio setup."  

I laughed at that, and said, "Nope.  I have a very small 8 x 10 room that fits a sewing table, an ironing board, a set of bookshelves and fabric storage."  

It's truly a kind of "cockpit" for creativity. The painting table is in the hallway in the basement leading to this room.  It's not magazine worthy.  But I am so thankful to have it, as in my last house I had to use the dining room table and pack and unpack stuff.  ~ Dixie Redmond
