OMG -- I clicked on your doll's picture because I recognized her instantly from that book, which I used to pore over constantly when I was little. Joan Russell has SUCH a distinctive style, doesn't she? I love her projects, even if I'm too clumsy to make most of them. My mom was going to sell the book at a yard sale once, but I insisted on keeping it.

Wild coincidence: It's been tucked away in a bookcase in my laundry closet for years, and I hadn't even THOUGHT about it until I was finishing up a sock monkey tonight, remembered a bunny pattern involving socks, and got it out so I could riff on it a little bit. I haven't been on Craftster in months, but I logged on just now to post a picture of said bunny, and lo and behold, I find myself face to face with a doll from that very book! Looking at the copyright date, I think Mom must have bought it with the intention of making toys for me when I was a baby, because I was born in 1975, and Mom's edition is a '75. Glad I'm not the only one out there who loves this book. Smiley

Thanks everyone! I do adore that book and hope to make my daughter, who is due in May, something from it. I love the projects and I think they are so timeless!
