Susannah

Susannah, such a cute name! But can you say it without singing Oh Susannah? Try it. I can’t. And can you write about her without saying something cheesy like…Don’t you cry for her, she’s having a lovely day in the park!

She’s enjoying her new mail treats. A cute sketch book with matching pencil (awesome!) from Alison & Nicole and a new Milly Molly Mandy book (woohoo!) from Sarah (oh and ah over her beautiful packaging here). Thanks guys!

This is the new doll the floppy armed twins inspired. She has floppy arms and legs and a little sit-on butt. She looks exactly like the little sketch I did so I’m very pleased with that but, as I mentioned, still in the same vein as my other dolls. Not that there’s anything wrong with that but once I cross off some to-do’s I’m going to try another little gal and she’s going to be completely different.

yeah right.

    i love what your doing and i dont really notice that your doing the same thing. i cant imagine what something differant would be…i would like to see, but on the other hand, if its not broken dont fix it!!! lol

    This. Is. Adorable. I’m usually not partial to yellow-haired dolls myself (although I’m a lifelong Barbie fan) but this doll is completely sweet. The only thing I would change would be to add a friend b/c she looks like she would be a friendly type of doll (either to another doll or a pair of little hands).

    She is so, so cute. I love her little blanket, that fabric is great! And the pictures, as usual, are brilliant.

    So sweet, of course. My friend is named Suzanna. At some point, everyone sings that song to her. She says everyone gets to do it once. ONCE. :-) Congrats on the cuteness.

    I love, love, love your site and your dolls and embroidery. In fact, I am going to have my Mom teach me how to embroider so I can grow up and be like you!!! I don’t know how to sew….which leads me to ask, do you ever sell your dolls? I live in Downers Grove, IL….Do you live in the Chicago area? just curious…..Thanks for sharing all your wonderful stuff and your estate sale finds! Love looking at everything…makes me giddy!

    susannah is awesome. And I absolutely love the narratives of how you present your creations. Susannah looks like she’s having such a good time.
    Also love the new (store and post) graphics on your site. They are absolutely fantastic.

    I love Susannah. I have this strange feeling that I had a doll very similar to her when I was younger, but it would take a lot of digging in dusty bags full of toys to find her.
    Like someone else mentioned, the hair on your dolls is fantastic. Love it!

    That is so cute you have a Downers Grove fan!
    As always, you make me weep with your genius.
    And you will need to have a girl for your next baby. Have your husband take lots of hot baths. Worked for us!

    I love her! Susannah, you are just too cute! :)
    I also love Milly Molly Mandy.. I didn’t know there was more than one! I’m going to have to find that!

    May I add myself to the burgeoning roster of the Wee Wonderfuls Fan Club, Downers Grove Chapter? We should have monthly meetings and sew-alongs! (Put-together-alongs?)
    Susannah is such a cutie. And she looks like she has a nice disposition, too.

    I just absolutely love your dolls. Who cares if they are the same when they are so cute anyway. By the way your bears are just so cute. I love looking at the stuff that you make. I am not so good with making toys, but is obviously your specialty. Cannot wait to see what the new doll will look like, and I am sure the mummy of twins will absolutely love those bears.

    she’s the cutest! i think it’s great that she looks like your other dolls–that’s what makes us know she’s “a hillary”! you have a very distinct style.

    Hi, just received your pattern book and have made a bunny and kitty. I have not been this inspired to sew again since my son passed away ten yrs. ago. Now I am itching to sew stuff dolls and animals for my new granddaughter (and I thought I would never have a family again. Will you be making a pattern for the doll Susannah? I would love to purchase one and can’t wait for the embroidery designs. I tried to order patterns, but already sold out. Thank you again for bringing my creative juices back to life. Have a beautiful day. Sincerely, K. Carter
