My Hubs is Making a Dollie :).....

I am so very proud of my Hubs!A couple of weeks ago,when I was making the Hitty&Izannah Walker style set,he saw the original Hitty for the first time,and was intrigued by her,since he has been a cabinet~maker,and furniture~maker,for most of his life.Like me,he also has a love for old and worn Folk Art&antiques.So,much to my amazement,he set out to make a Hitty!He has never even hand~carved anything before,let alone,a dollie!But I must say,I am extremely impressed with his very first,hand~carved Hitty!No kits were used,she's just entirely hand~carved from scratch,by him.To me,it gives her a very wonderful,authentic,Folk Art appeal.I'm going to document his progress along the way!

Wow she is amazing so far Mandy! Can't wait to see the progress pics! I loved your clay Hitty, so I'm sure this wooden version will blow me away too!
What a talented team the two of you make!

Mandy, what a wonderful job he's making of her. Please do continue updating us on how she turns out.

I think that's great that your husband is carving a doll, has he ever tried a Santa?

Thanks for visiting me. Take care~Diane
