Playing with hair


Today I finished my girls face, sewed on her Ears, which are hidden by her hair. Then I dug out my stash of hand dyed Tibetan lamb hair.  The picture doesn’t do justice. The hair is more of a dirty yellow.  Having fun watching her character emerge.

Some of last years Art


Last year I signed up for Paint Your Heart & Soul 2018. Above are some of my finished works. It really pushed me to another level. I so enjoyed the class, that I signed up again this year. It’s gonna be an awesome year.

New Troll in the works


I bought this little vintage doll dress several months back and I've been itching to make a new troll.  I started this lady a couple of days ago.  I really like where she's heading.  We shall see what else she tells me.  Stay tuned!

Last month of the year

Not sure what happened to November, but here we are.  I've been busy working on a few handmade Christmas things.  Knitted this little fox scarf for my grandson. 

Been working on this rug hooking thru out the year. It's only my second piece that I have done.  Made using t-shirt strips.  It was a great way to use up T-shirts.  I want to make a really big one.  Maybe next year.


Now to finish up my Alabama Chanin style scarf.  I'll post pics later.  I hope everyone, is Happy and Healthy.  Happy Holidays!

OK one more

Oh' boy, I think was bitten by the floral painting bug. This is what happens when Pilate class gets cancelled and you have an empty canvas. LOL  I won't post all the pics of how I started.  The process is actually the fun part. Prep the canvas, quick sketch your flowers.  Turn the canvas three times. Wipe!!!  Yes wipe, you don't want to get too attached to your sketches.

The next layer of paint is filling in areas of shapes that you see.  Find your vase and then sketch in your floral arrangement.  Then paint, pastel and Charcoal.  Love this!!!  And I love how the Sunflowers are singing with the background.  I will seal it today.  And move on to another project.

Knitting a scarf?!?

Finished my flower painting class

I can only stress, if you ever get a chance to take a class from Lynn Whipple.....do it!  I had so much fun learning to be more free and loose with my painting skill.  I have just finished the fourth floral painting.   It measures 50" X 40" .  It's big!!!!  And you would think going bigger is easier.  Hmmmm not so much. 

But I'm totally in love with by new Big Bold Wild Flower painting.
