Extra Fine Painting completed in 2014 (this doll has been kept aside to be offered as a completed doll and it has taken this long to decide on what she would wear)… As always, no doll is actually finished until it is sold…

This bonnet and the dress flowers are by Mary Lambeth. (I had these put away for many years intending to make the matching dresses one day). I have several sets of these bonnets and flowers and eventually I will make the dresses for each bonnet… All are different.
