Troll Clown #3 is finished



It's beginning to look like a little Troll Clown Family.  Each one with it's own little voice telling me what to do as I'm creating them.

The Troll Clown Adventure continues

Well I started Troll Clown #3.  It' really has been a fun experience, not something I would have tried on my own.  So I have learned the "yes" moments that we all get from time to time make us step out of our comfort zone.  And I find that most always the results exceed the expectations.  This adventure being no different.

At first I though I was going to make all the Troll Clowns the same, but I'm really glad that each one is taking on it's own personality.  You can tell they're related and one happy family.

There's a lot of hand stitching involved and as you can see the one with the red coat still has some pins stuck into him.  Well that's cause he needs more hand stitching.

Closing my on-line store

Well after much thinking, I've have decided to close my on-line store.  I will still have a website but I will no longer be selling patterns and notions.  So I hope you take advantage of the 25% off sale that I am offering until the goodies are gone.

I will still be making Trolls and other Art.  I'm looking forward to this new adventure.  Go have a look Utes Trolls

Troll Clown number two

This new adventure has me thinking what do clowns do? What do they hold? Are they funny or sad?  I'm having fun with my latest project. It's been a week since I finished the second Troll Clown and tomorrow I will start the third.   No preconceived ideas................it's the best feeling!

Thought you might like to see


It's been a slow process but my Troll clown is coming along.  It's been fun to create something and different.  I'm enjoying the process very much.  Lets just hope the next six will be just as fun.

Under the Big Tent is the theme

Under the Big Top is the theme for ODACA this year.  I'm not sure that Trolls can be Clowns, but I'm going to give it a shot.  I will be making the centerpiece Dolls for this wonderful event.

ODACA Day will be held July 15th at the Kansas City Marriott this year.  I'm very thrilled to be part of this celebration.  And since I  have a number of Trolls to make I figured I had better get started.  So I'll give you a sneak peek at my prototype.


I'm totally enjoying the process of stepping out of my comfort zone.
