Looking Back, Looking Ahead

Every once in a while, it's time to stop time and take stock. It's important to look at where you've been and where you hope to go. About a year ago, I set some goals for myself. One was to take all the measurements and pictures I've been able to gather from seeing original Izannah Walker dolls, and design a pattern for making an Izannah inspired doll. I had posted about the desire way back in 2007. It's so good to be able to look back and say that I've done that.

Dixie Redmond's Izannah Walker Pattern

E. J. Taylor, a fabulous doll artist, is going to be leading an "in-person" Izannah Walker Workshop using my Izannah Walker pattern in the fall of 2010 at the American Museum in Bath England! This is very exciting! So if you are located in Great Britain this is a wonderful opportunity. Space is limited, so be sure to sign up soon.

For those of you not in driving distance of Bath, England, don't forget to sign up for the online Fall workshop.
