Yesterday in the solitude of my studio I finally began to sew something for my Christmas doll, Mary Marie. Once again Connie and I collaborated on a new doll to sew for and I chose Mary Marie, the doll the child learned to sew for in The Mary Frances Sewing Book (Jane Eayre Fryer c. 1913). She has been home with me for a few weeks now, but with the skating costumes to complete (Polly's is not yet done!), I expected to wait until I had good time to play with her.

|A Gentle Note From the Author|
Polly has a snowshoeing outfit to be made, and both her and Lettie will continue to have beautifully clothing made for them, but Mary Marie is for the pixie in me. The book also illustrates accessories and of course, The Thimble People, and these I hope to bring to life as well.
