A Doll for Dixie

I have a small collection of artist made Izannah dolls. Some were gifts and some are bartered; a couple I purchased long ago. This week a doll made by Martha Bishop of Maboriginals joined the group. 

I love Martha's dolls.  Isn't this a sweet girl? 

Martha also sent along this pinkeep doll which makes me grin! 

This girl will help me focus on getting some of my own dolls completed. 
Here's the doll I am working on now.

Thank you Dixie. I am so happy you love your new doll. She is right at home with all the other beautiful dolls. You have made some wonderful pictures of her and the pin keep too. So vivid and clear. It was my pleasure to make her for you. Your new dolly in progress is lovely as all of your dolls are. I am looking forward to seeing lots of your dolls this year and seeing the progress all of us are making. Thanks again, Martha

A very special dolly collection. I love your Martha dollies! Beautiful fabric for the outfits and both girls full of sweetness,character & charm. I too have some dolls she made & to me Martha is a true folk artist. She puts her heart soul into her dolls & it comes through. Lucky you!

Yay! A Martha Doll! I miss mine, as she is packed so I can do a house-selling make-ready. Yours is sweet! (And the pinkeep girl is priceless.)

What a wonderful collection! Martha's dolls are so, so wonderful. I also have a couple of her dolls which I just treasure. I agree with Sherri that Martha is a true folk artist.
