St John of Shanghai and San Fransisco Doll

The doll for my newborn son is finished, the socks for me for the hospital are knitted, and the key for my substitute teacher at school is turned in.

All that is left is for some contraction action to get started...

"Look with compassionate eye and deliver me, Thy handmaiden, from pain. Lighten mine infirmity in the time of my travail and grant me fortitude and strength for birth giving, and hasten it by Thine almighty help."

"They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength."


  1. Congratulations! I didn't know you were expecting. Through the prayers of the Theotokos!

  2. Congratulations! So happy for you!

  3. What?!? I didn't know! How wonderful!

  4. Congratulations! I hope that by now you're snuggling your baby. Prayers.

  5. I love this little doll and would love to make some for a few of the children in our parish. Where can I find the pattern? I'll check back or e-mail me at Thanks.

  6. Hi! I would like to make this for my 1 year old son. Do you have a pattern?
    Thank you!
