made in georgia, usa

Meet, Anna.

With limited doll making supplies here in The Georgia House and the need to make something, we headed to the craft store for embroidery floss and polyfil.  With a wool scarf too itchy for Greta,  I came up with Anna.  I thought she might be a fun addition to my Etsy shop once it opens up again in January. 

Would she be more appealing in a set of three?  Is my embroidery too messy?  I would love your feedback!  In return I would like to offer her as a gift.  I will rest over the weekend ( maybe in Savannah!) and choose one commenter on Tuesday, December 7th, randomly of course.  She will leave here via St. Simon's Island Post, bound for her new home.  Possibly your home!

Have a wonderful weekend, y'all!

Well hello there, Anna - says Anna! :) That's my real name, you now, as Ansku is just a nickname everybody has used since I was a kid.

She is absolutely gorgeous and there's nothing wrong with your embroidery. I like how her eyes are closed; she looks like she's daydreaming. :)

I hope you'll have a great weekend, too!

You're giving her away????????????? She is so devine.

Hi Rachel. I am trying to catch up with a few blogs. But I always seem to leave it 'til late at night. It is so hard to follow all your favourites and go back through their old posts and comment on new juicy finds etc etc. Do you find this?
You have been taking some beautiful photos.
And I do appreciate each of your visits.
