About Me

My photo
Hello from Mary in Atlanta, Georgia... I'm a dollmaker and happy gramma to a dear little near-four-year-old granddaughter. I want to showcase here great dolls and softies from other artists as well as my own stuff. My main interest lies with vintage cloth dolls that our frugal earlier mothers made for their children--women who often did not possess the financial means or even transportation to indulge "boughten" dolls and toys. In this endeavor I've been heavily influenced by master dollmaker Gail Wilson of Gail Wilson Designs.

Circe is almost finished ...

She needs stockings .. Circe is a PipEmma Creations pattern .. Stuffed with wool, entirely hand-sewn .. Her face is modeled after a famous early American doll called the New York girl. The original New York girl is pictured on the front of the Wendy Lavitt book, American Folk Dolls ..
