A Goal Met

 Inspiration:  Original Antique Izannah Walker Doll

Last Thanksgiving, when my family was eating pizza on a nightly basis (not really, but close) I worked on my Izannah Walker doll pattern.  


I was nervous about designing it and getting everything uploaded onto the class site.  My husband really pulled me through, covering kids and household chores, sitting me down and helping me make a project management timeline, breaking what seemed like a huge task into do-able chunks.  He's great!  

In the past year, I have used my pattern to make a quite a few dolls (below).  And I have had the joy of seeing the class members make some amazing dolls with that pattern.  Go to the Izannah Walker Workshop blog and watch the slideshow of class dolls.  They're amazing.  My friend Edyth called them my "grand-dolls."  I loved that perspective.  :-)   

I know some of you have wondered if I'm being held hostage by an organizational guru because of my recent blog posts, but no.  I'm getting organized and ready for the next goal.
