My Izannah Walker Workshop Doll ~ Tamar Angevine

Not much to look at ... but, I have finally started the doll pattern provided in Dixie Redmonds Workshop.
Am using Wool Roving for stuffing and can't wait to start sculpting.  
Again, these will be named after a very distant relative ,
and will make two just in case I need spare parts
Tamar #001 & Tamar #002

Tamar Angevine-Moseman
April 22, 1811  ~  September 13, 1881 

My First attempt at X-Stitch

I recently finished 'Dutch Strawberries' ~ My first attempt at X-Stitch.
I love the Strawberry Motif. Soon I will be starting another Sampler with strawberries 
'The Heloise Williams Sampler'.
I really love this one and wanted to experiment with a smaller one first. Guess I am hooked.

Next is getting it framed


It will fit a 5" x 7" frame.


 O.K. ... It is framed.

Actually, I decided to mount it on 'Acid Free Foam Board' myself.
The frame was purchased and I am totally pleased with it. 
It has a Tortoise Shell faux finish look.
