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.

She's finally done!

As promised, she is finally done.  No name yet, but I'm sure that will come.  It was a fun process and I always learn something.

Progress report

I've been working on my Rider for the past couple of days.  Not much left to do, but my fingers are starting to hurt from all the hand stitching and pocking.  I had to add a weight to the Field Mouse and now she doesn't fall over. I hope to get this piece done this weekend.

No excuses

Well it has been a while since I have posted anything.  Summer time tends to keep folks busier, I guess???  I'm having a bit of a dry spell here, and I mean this literally both inside and outside.  I am trying to get back in the groove of things. I did manage to sew up "six" Troll bodies that I'm making for the 2015 ODACA Centerpiece Dolls/Trolls.

Some of us work well under pressure, but I don't really want to go there. LOL

Today I will attempt to do a little on my Troll Rider.  I will try to keep you posted on how that goes.

Troll Rider

Today I added the second leg and the arms. I'm very happy with the progress. I can't wait to give him/her some clothes. And have lots of embellishment ideas.
