I just wanted to show you a picture of my latest doll, a special order for a great customer from Massachusetts.  She bought my "Elizabeth Keckley" doll in San Antonio,  and wanted me to make a little girl to pose with her.  As Elizabeth was the fabulous seamstress for Mary Todd Lincoln,  my customer wanted this little girl to represent a pupil of Keckley learning how to sew.  I named her "Georgiana", and she's about 18" tall.  I used human hair for her hairdo, and  silk taffeta for her dress. As always, she is sculpted of paper clay and oil painted.
