10" Esther, a William Higgs pincushion doll...........SOLD

I just could not resist finishing this little William Higgs wooden doll off into a pincushion doll.
Esther is 10" tall and all hand carved.  I had actually carved and painted her before the big fire here but this week I thought it was time to finish her off.
She is delightful even with her scraggly hair do!  Esther is dressed in early faded linen that is cream and coral but I think it might have originally have been red, you decide.  She has her little pocket at her hip and a tiny pair of scissors that actually work.  She is well weighted and stands perfectly.......ready to hold your pins and needles or just put her on a shelf.
Esther is now SOLD.

20" Izannah Walker doll finished and SOLD...............

Here are some more photos of the doll that I have just completed.  She is wearing a 2pc. outfit and as you see she also has an extra dress and a calico bonnet, all made from antique cotton calico.
I am posting some more photos here and you will have to scroll down to see more photos and the description.  I am not sure why I can only post a few photos at a time??
If you have questions or would like me to email you more photos just let me know

It is time.....................back to doll making I go!


I can not believe that is has been 2 months since the massive fire here.  We are re-building here even though it is winter and -22C.
My doll making time has been so limited with all that has been consuming my days here.
Having said that.......................I have a really wonderful 20" Izannah Walker doll completed, finally. 
She has 7 perfect ringlets and a face that would fool anyone.  She is dressed in a 2 pc. outfit that I made from some wonderful early calico and her undergarments are matching and to die for!  They too are made from antique pieces that I have been saving for a special doll.  These photos of her do not make me happy.  She is so much nicer in person and her outfits made of antique cotton calico are not bright like in these photos at all. 
If you have questions or would like more photos of this first doll since the fire here just email me
Thank you all for your patience and understanding for the lack of dolls lately.
