Hello doll lovers! This blog was created to tell you about dolls I have made and classes I teach on doll making at Attic Window Quilt Shop in Comstock Park, Michigan (a suburb of Grand Rapids). My goal in teaching is to pass on the love of making heirloom quality dolls. Most of the dolls I make (and hold classes for) are designed by Gail Wilson - visit her website at . Page down my blog for some fun doll links including antique doll sites and hard to find doll supplies.

Super Duper Cute alert

Oh my, I feel like a pirate finding a pot of gold in the sand! For in with all the junk mail yesterday was the MOST ADORABLE tiny sock monkey for my Hitty.  Many thanks to Linda H from Sequim, WA for sending me this little treasure.  My Hitty thinks she is the cat's meow now with her own sock monkey  (and she probably is).

Linda, you sure made my day yesterday! Thanks for sharing your talent with me.  It always amazes me that you can get a felting needle and turn a whisp of roving into little critters.  I must try my hand at this sometime.  In the meantime, if you have a website where others can go and see your craft, please let us know in the comments.  Thanks and THANKS AGAIN!

Now, I need to go put my treasure in the bookcase with the other treasures.  Hmmm, maybe on the bed. 

I had a barrel full of doll fun today!  Thanks for stopping by, and now I'm going to monkey around in the doll room - Julie


  1. He is adorable, Julie! I have a fondness for sock monkeys and Hitty, too. I love your Hitty's dress. Mine came with a pink dress.

  2. Hi AH, I have made a few Hitties (Gail's online class is so fun, I took it twice) and I think this is my favorite dress. I wish I could find more of this fabric. Red is also a nice color and especially with the red coral bead necklace. I am finding some doll fun in all the kits that Hitty has to go along with her.
